TOP TIPS FROM ALINE HARDIE
Use a selection of foliages. I used two varieties of holly, ivy and pine. Other foliages you can use include eucalyptus, olive, branch and conifers.
- Cut all foliage to similar lengths.
- Start by bunching a selection of foliages together and either use twine or wire to wrap and constantly add to it.
- Keep all foliage facing the same way. If you require both ends to look the same do a smaller separate section.
- Add lots detail, I used beautiful Red Freedom and Naomi Roses, Pheasant tail feathers, pine cones and ilex berries. Cinnamon sticks, dried orange or apple slices, or more fresh flowers. Either wire these as you go or place on top.
