Add flowers to the Copper wire Tiara

Decorate the tiara

Snip tiny florets from the stem of very well conditioned hydrangeas. Add a small amount of glue to the floret and set aside for a few seconds to allow the glue to become tacky (it will start to bubble). Glue each floret, curl and wire bauble into place.
