I wanted a light and transparent collar-base for my large composite flower to nestle into. Snip tiny dry twig sections for the collar
Glue two half-moon shapes from twigs
Weave short sections of lily grass in and out of the twig collar
Glue the two half-moons together and attach the autumn leaf rose

Every week I add a new design with related tutorials. Be sure to subscribe to receive an email notification with design inspiration.
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.
This was the first design I did in my "I found it this way" floral art demonstration
Glue a bunch of twigs inside a container to create a round stack
Instead of just placing a handful of twigs and two stems of sweet peas in a vase... why not...?
Floral styling using mostly dried material that will last the entire Autumn.
Soft minimal Fall armature making it easy to replace the flowers as the season progress.
Using that little something that is unusual about your flower to make the design stand out.
The dry wheat stems are suspended from the outside of the container so that they remain dry and the flower stems can gently rest inside to remain hydrated.
Place a small fishbowl vase at an angle to look like it is pouring out flowers and twigs.
A glued snipped to create a cooling cone for dangling orchids
Glue a band of snow dusted twigs to create a delicate armature for winter treasures.
