Step 1:

Select the silk flowers and greenery you’d like to use. Use wire cutters to trim off all the excess leaves, leaving only leaves close to the flower head.

Step 2:

Select a few of your larger focal flower heads as a starting point to build your bouquet, try to spiral the stems as you add them.

Step 3-4:

Add other flowers around your focal flowers, making sure you keep a rounded even shape. Turning the bouquet in your hand makes adding flowers easier.

Step 5-6:

Using the floral twine tie the stem of the bouquet tightly near the top of the stems.

Step 7:

Using wire cutters cut the stems to the desired length.

Lay the bouquet on a flat surface and attach your ribbon, in this case a simple tied trailing ribbon.
