8 Trim the thistle blossoms so that the stem is long enough to be secure in the bouquet handle ( about 3 – 4 inches )  Then slide the thistle into the hydrangea blossoms so that they rest on the petals.

9  Add sprigs of baby’s breath to the bouquet for extra flourish if you want!  Baby’s Breath looks great in photographs and smells faintly of honey !!

10  Tie a rubber band around the top of the base of the stems. Then tuck the ends of the leafy greens around the outside of the bouquet.

11  Measure enough twine to wrap your bouquet handle and cut it a inches longer than you think it needs to be. If the bouquet doesn’t feel totally secure by this step, don’t hesitate to add extra rubber bands before you start wrapping of the base!

13  Holding the twine tight with one hand, wrap the base of your bouquet with the other hand. When you get to the base use the extra end of twine to make a single tight knot and then simply trim and tuck the ends in.
