|Step 2: CREATING THE FORM
the pussy willow stems in a parallel fashion to create a vertical framework for the
design. Repeat the vertical lines with the two monte casino stems. I cut mine
apart (approximately 5 smaller pieces) to fill out the basket. As you place the
willow and monte casino, be sure to fill in the full depth of the basket. This will
prevent the basket from looking stiff and one dimensional. At the base, cover
the plastic bag with sphagnum moss and fill in with the privet foliage to conceal the
foam. Lastly, tuck the hypericum berries near the center to create you focal area.
