6. Wrap ivy & curly willow around handle from both ends and tie with spool wire in the center

Directions for Basket:

1. Clean and prep your basket so it will hold oasis.

2. Make sure to soak it with water and it’s saturated before you place it inside the basket.

3. Cut plastic lining and make sure it covers the entire inside of the basket.

4. . Use hot glue to hold lining inside basket and use all around.

5.. Once glue dries add the soaked oasis inside.

6. Cut your springtime blooms, make sure to group your blooms in clusters into the basket.
When cutting wood stems make sure to tear off stem and bang the ripped off stem so it can
absorb water.

7. Use a watering can to thoroughly water the center of the basket

*Make sure all plants are inserted into the oasis
