1. Starts with a 6x6 vessel, we use a square glass vase.
2. Cut a brick of Oasis foam into 1/3 sections, then soak.
3. Place a 1/3 section on the bottom of the vessel and stack the remaining 2/3 sections on top (so the Oasis extends over the vessel). Tape to secure.
4. Insert your roses (largest flowers first) to create your rounded base shape.
5. Add remaining flowers to full in between the roses, have fun by having the remaining flowers "in and out" of the roses to ceate dimension.
