Step 1

To begin with, start decorating the wreath with flowers and green materials. After that, fill the inside of horse tails (botanical term) with support wire. Stick both ends of each horse tail into the wreath. Moreover, try building a net of horse tails. But make sure to place all of them in such a way that they stay above the flowers.
That way, it is possible to create a modern looking design without damaging any blossoms.

Step 2

Accentuate a small Calla bouquet with a black-colored ribbon. With the help of concealed wire, put the bouquet onto the edge of the wreath in a skewed way.
