This is how it is done.

Step 1

Place the decorative fabric, previously dipped in liquid wax, in a single layer around the glass.

Step 2

Now apply some dry grasses partially vertically and apply a second layer of tissue in the lower area. Allow the whole to dry and wrap with a string.

Step 3

Finally, insert the watered and trimmed fresh flower foam into the glass and decorate with florals. Insert the foam into the glass and decorate with florals.
