Instructions
1. Weave the two pieces of artificial greenery together on the work surface.
2. Unroll about 6 inches of the florist’s wire, and cut from the roll with the cutting tool.
3. Twist the greenery ends around each other and wrap the wire 4 to 5 times around the greenery ends. The ends should be tightly bound together.
4. Repeat steps 2-3, and tie up the other end of the greenery with the wire.
5. Trim any excess wire with the cutting tool.
6. Cut about 8 inches from the roll of wire with the cutting tool.
7. Cut that wire piece into four 2-inch long pieces.
8. Attach the four flower and flower bud pieces throughout the greenery piece with the wire. Flowers should be evenly spaced and not bunched in one part of the greenery.
9. Wrap the fairy-light string around the greenery and flowers. Tuck the ends of the light string into the ends of the greenery piece.
10. Now you're ready to place the runner on the table.
Enjoy the magic that your new table runner’s twinkling lights and delicate flowers bring to your table.
