Oasis Idea Weekly

March 2018
Why and How to Wire and Tape Flowers

In a post last month, we discussed the considerable benefits of gluing flowers. 

Today we ask: If glue is so great, why would you ever wire and tape flowers?

Why? Because there are weak, brittle, crooked or too-short stems. There are flowers with heavy heads. There are long designs.

Then there's control.
You can get wired and taped flowers into positions you can’t with unwired stems.

For these reasons, hand-wiring, unlike Myspace and super low-rise pants, might always be with us.

Add it to your floral design skill set with this week's overview of the techniques, from corkscrew to cranking to cross-piercing to air-taping and more, with 20 photos.

Discover why, how and which wire and tape techniques to use. Click the image above or green button below.
