Christine de Beer - effortless floral craftsman
I love using copper wire in designs. It just looks "right" combined with plant material. I unravel a copper pot scrubber to get rolls and rolls of flat copper wire. See below for the Tutorial
As an added bonus this wire can be curled with scissors as you would gift ribbon!
Gently pull the wire over the sharp edge of your scissors. Repeat until you have the amount of curl you need for your project
