Using Oasis to weigh down an underwater garland
Soak the Rainbow Oasis thoroughly before attaching the wire and roses. It is the heavy Oasis that sinks the design and keeps the flowers under water.
I made one long (and rather soggy) garland of wire, Oasis and roses. I then gently spiraled the garland into the water filled vase curling it form the bottom up, while pressing it down into the vase.
Be very careful when handling the roses as they bruise easily when arranged under water. They will also not last very long soaked but roses are such a traditional Valentine’s flower that I could not resist.
