Step 4.
Place the leaves criss cross and closely together in the floral foam. Place the flowers with their long stems in between the rolled up leaves and make sure there’s an even distribution.

Step 5.
Take the colored rattan and tie the colored wool around the sticks. This really shows some craftsmanship and adds extra value to your arrangement. Place these sticks in between the flowers and rolled up leaves.
