Taping a Wire with Floral Tape- Flowers 101

One of the most basic mechanics is a covered wire that has been taped with floral tape. In this week’s Mechanic Video, I show the simple technique for covering a wire with floral tape.

I learned this technique from my Grandmother…and any gauge of wire can be taped. I frequently see people struggling with this process and it’s because they are not familiar with how floral tape works. It’s a process to pull the tape so that it releases the wax…and then wraps around the wire and sticks to itself.

A covered wire is invaluable…and you’ll find a multitude of uses for this flower industry basic mechanic!
