  • Glue a green floral foam small piece right at the top middle of your wire basket. Add Spanish moss on the back of the metal basket so glue doesn’t come through the hole.
  • Add in two pieces of your fern greenery. Use your wire cutter and hold the stem so you can push your leaves up. Dip it in glue pot and stick in opposite of you the foam block.
  • Now push in your lavender florals into your foam pieces on top of that fern greenery you just placed. Add what you feel looks the best for your style.
  • Add in more greenery on each side. What you do on one side you must do on the other side. Keep things balanced.
  • Now work on the top of your foam block. It is important that you cover up your mechanics. You can even come back and add Spanish moss if needed.
  • Lastly, add in your berry stems. Push in from the bottom and then pull them out of the way of mail being placed in.
