This is how it is done

Step 1

First, water the floral foam base. Then fix the plug base on the coffin with nails at the eyelets of the wooden base.

Step 2

Gather the grasses into a bundle and loosely twist them into a loop and fix them to the pegboard with a peg wire.

Step 3

Add the pieces of lichen with the help of the plug wire. Add the flowers around these. Add the flowers around these design accents.
