to make & keep
Supplies: 10" copper wreath base (99p off eBay!) twine or florists wire 3-4 stems gypsophila scissors
Cut the flower stems off where they join the main branch. You want a selection of different lengths.
Using the longest, bushiest stems first, wind the bare stem around the wire ring. Hold the blossoms in the gap between the rings and criss-cross this space with your stems & string to form a supportive web.
Repeat, weaving in more stems. Feed stems through the gaps in your web to fill out empty spaces.
Keep adding until you're happy with the fullness. Twist in any stray stems & tie a string to the back.
You're all done. The gypsophila will slowly dry out but keep it's colour for several months.
