1. Snip stems of each flower 2-3” from base of bloom.

2. Gather and pinch three larger blooms together with your thumb and index finger. Continue to add flowers of your choice, styling them into a bundle and pinching all stems together at the base.

3. Wrap florist wire tightly around base of gathered bundle five to six times.

4. Cut stems 1½” away from base of bundle to make them all the same length.

5. Cut 1 ft. of florist tape and wrap all of the stems together, moving from base of bloom down to ends of stems in a spiral motion to cover entire bundle. Note: Florist tape is very tacky and will adhere to itself and stems very easily. Cut off any excess tape.

6. Use bobby pins to secure finished piece into hair.
