Instructions
1. Cut off the strip of fabric that keeps the umbrella closed.
2. Place the faux sunflowers inside the umbrella opening. Secure them with floral wire.
3. Cut off the excess floral wire with wire cutters and use needle-nosed pliers to tuck the wire into place.
4. Place the faux roses inside of the umbrella opening, tucking them into the floral wire already in place. Insert them so they are mixed among the sunflowers.
5. Cut off a section of green ribbon and cut both ends of the ribbon at an angle.
6. Tie the green ribbon around the umbrella into a bow.
