This is how it is done

Step 1

Since soft and very thin stems are inserted, the OASIS® IDEAL Maxlife tile can also be used for this purpose. Round off the corners on one side of an OASIS® NatureSource™ tile using a floral foam knife.

Step 2

Then by means of hot glue, glue the outside of the brick with stick bark.

Step 3

Now stick nigella and pine needles onto the still free areas. If necessary, pre-drill plug-in holes with the help of grit rods. Likewise, work in other materials. Finally, place the workpiece with the rounded side up, fix a candlestick in place and set up the candle.
