I wanted to post a picture of how to stand Flowers in manzanita branches.
First buy Dowel’s at joanne’s/michaels/beverely’s, green floral tape, green thin wire, green moss and 1 half 8″ strofoam ball. Cut the dowel’s in half. Use floral tape to wrap the dowel’s all the way down. Attach a flower (I used a wisteria bush and cut the branches to the size I need.) Attach to the end of the flower one of the thin wire’s with floral tape. (use a very small piece) and continue attaching the wire all the way down the flower in about 3″ blocks. Then cut a long strip of floral tape and attach that flower to the dowel. Covering the entire end portion of the flower to the dowel. This gives the dowel a good look .
Place your strofoam ball around the base of your manzanita branches so you can stick the dowels (w/attached wisteria) into the strofoam. Then
