Wire Plants Onto Frame

Lay one evergreen branch down along the bottom half of the copper circle, stem facing down. Wrap florist wire around the evergreen branch and copper circle to secure. Repeat with second evergreen branch so that stems are touching on the copper circle.

Wire large air plant onto copper circle by intertwining florist wire between the base of the plant and the bottommost leaves. Nestle in desired spot on copper circle. Twist excess florist wire from the air plant around the back of the copper circle to secure the plant. Trim excess wire. Repeat with six small air plants.
