Criss-cross Monstera lace-up
Glue short sections of rosary vine into the natural gaps in the Monstera deliciosa leaf
Glue each section to the very edge of the leaf to cross over in the middle
Follow it all the way down the leaf using sections with leaves that become smaller as you reach the edge of the leaf
Move all the way around the leaf and "lace it up" with vine
Let bits of vine dangle and spill over the edge
The Monstera deliciosa leaf is in water and the Ceropegia woodii is a succulent and should look pretty for up to a week without a water source, maybe more
The finish of every design should be flawless. Make sure there are no bits of glue visible in your design by carefully removing all traces of spills.

Lash the orchid stems together to create a ladder for the flower to rest on.
