Step 1
Using a pair of sharp scissors, cut the stems of the flowers and foliage to approximately 2 inches long. Mount the flower heads onto florists wire by inserting a length of wire through the base of the flower head, just at the top of the stem. Fold the wire in half, and wrap one end around the stem to secure.

Step 2
Wrap a length of florist tape around the stem and wire of each flower to create a clean finish.

Step 4
Begin to arrange the wired flowers into two small clusters. Creating two small clusters of blooms will ensure that the larger flower heads lie in the middle of the comb, framed by green foliage.

TOP TIP: Start the first cluster with small sprigs of [your choice of flower] and brunia laevis, topped with a delicate cream spray rose.

Step 5
Arrange white lisianthus, [your choice of flower] and brunia laevis together to form the second flower cluster.

Step 6
Attach the two flower clusters together by wrapping florist wire around the stems of each cluster. Trim the stems where necessary to create a clean finish. Using another length of florist wire, attach the flowers securely to the comb by looping the wire several times through the teeth and around the stems of the comb and the flowers.

TOP TIP: To create a balanced look, ensure that the flower heads are arranged evenly along the width of the comb.
