Rip a Cordyline leaf into strands with a corsage pin
Cut a circle out of cardboard and pin the strands to the cardboard
Carefully knot each strand to another strand and secure with a pin
Keep adding strands
Press the strands down to lie flat on the cardboard
Knot each strand to at least two other strands.
Keep adding pins to keep the strands in position.
Secure the last few strand ends and set aside to dry
Feel to see if the strands are completely dry. It should be inflexible so that the catcher keeps its shape when placed over a vase
Carefully remove the pins
Place over a glass vase as a rigid grid to keep plant material in place
