Materials: You only need three things for this design- the 12" Grapevine wreath, the pre-made Nigella & Protea Bouquet, and the striped ribbon in black and cream.  To make it your own, you can use any wreath, pre-made faux flower bouquet, and ribbon you'd like.

Step 1: Cut the wire or wrapping holding the bouquet together with wire cutters and sort the bouquet into pairs of similar stems.

Step 2: Use the large vines wrapped around the wreath to hold the flower stems in place.  Begin sliding the stems under the vine, hiding the ends in the vines. Create a mirrored image by working with one pair of stems at time, inserting one on the left side of the wreath and one on the right.
