Hi. I'm here to talk about some basic floral accessories. You have wood picks, which some with a wire attached to them. You can get them without. They're used for extending flower stems to attach a bow or some other decoration to. So, it can stick into your flower arrangement. There's wires. Wires are used to fasten your bows. And, again the wood pick if you wanted to attach the wire to it you just wrap it around like that. Wa-la. And, then just stick it in the arrangement. Your wires are used to wires flowers. You can wire the stems, so it keeps the heads of the flowers standing. If they're not getting hydrated with water, you just wrap your wires around the stem like that. Another accessory, is stem tape. Stem tape is used to cover up your mechanics on wires such as this. Put the stem tape over it and spin it around and it will cover up the wires. And, the stem tape comes in different colors. So, it can match your the colors of the stems so you don't see the wires. And, these are some basic accessories used to arrange flowers.
