Attach the Rosebuds to the Frame

Make a small hook at either end of the taped wire frame.

Place a wired, taped rosebud at one end of the frame and wind stem tape around the wired end; the stem must remain free to be angled correctly, so it should not be attached to the frame. Bind all the wired rosebuds to the frame in the same way. Try to keep the sequence of closed and semi-open buds random as you attach them to the wire frame to create a loose arrangement of blooms.

Add the Ivy and Complete the Circlet

Interweave a length of trailing ivy loosely between the rosebuds.

Mist the rosebuds and ivy regularly, particularly if it is hot, to keep them as fresh as possible until the circlet is used. You can also cover the circlet loosely with damp tissue to retain its freshness for longer.
