How to make a floral wreath
To make the floral wreath, start by attaching the (water-filled) water tubes to the metal ring with wire. Optionally use tape to secure them even better. Take the sprigs of Pittosporum and wire them one at a time along one half of the metal hoop. Wrap the wire along the length of each stem, and lift the leaves as you go so they don’t get squished. Make sure the water tubes aren’t visible anymore. Take the Anthuriums, cut them to the desired length and slide them into the water tubes. Finally, tie a ribbon to the top of your wreath so you can hang it on a wall! Occasionally check whether there is enough water in the tubes, so that the Anthuriums won’t dry out.
