  2. Start with your largest flowers and attach them to the head wreath by wrapping its wire stem around the wreath. Cut off any extra wire.
  3. Add in the smaller flowers to either side of the large peonies, then fill in any gaps with the large leaves from the peony template.
  4. To finish, add the blue bird to the head wreath using hot glue or wire to secure it in place.
