    aLove it J. What did you use to cut a hole in the oasis wreath? I have tried cutting it before and it was very tricky, any tips?

      Thanks for the note…

      I used my Victorinox Nippers… (like a bunch cutter… but made for cutting wire and tougher things… ) I poked a hole in the center first with an Awl… YOU ARE Correct… it’s tough plastic… and I needed to punch that hole first to get able to cut with nippers… and create the hole!
      Great Question… keep ‘em coming!!!!!

    Hi J – If I wanted to use moss, what would you recommend?

    Hi Tammy… I would use one of two things… Fresh Moss from FernTrust… or Super Moss… a preserved moss that looks very realistic…
    however you could use Spanish Moss or Reindeer Moss as well… both are very well suited to this project too!
    Thanks for the question… Have a Flower Filled Day!

    Hi J – what type of aralia foliage did you use? If I wanted to use moss on the PVC pipe, any special tricks to attaching the moss to the pipe? This was a very informative segment I really enjoyed.

    Hi J,

    I want to make a large baby’s breath ball topiary.

    What works best the large foam back to back or I how can I attach a large sphere?

      Oasis makes some great topiary forms and some REALLY Large Spheres now… check out the selection at your local wholesale florist! They have one that has the ball right on the stick… so your work is completely done!!
