I made some small flowers recently and used chicken wire. I wrapped green yarn around and used hot glue to keep it in place. It worked pretty well :slight_smile:

I just used some wooden sticks and wrapped yarn around it, but I have now purchased some floral wire stems on amazon. (I haven’t tried it yet, but I am excited to see if they work better, because they are bendable)

I bought some green pipe cleaners. But they are very thin. Who knew there were different sizes? I wrap 3 around each other to make a stem.

I am working on another vase today. Hopefully it will be ready to test soon. I need to make a tutorial video for a part of it. I need to make flowers too. :wilted_flower: :sunflower: :rose: Someday!

I would use wooden skewer sticks.
