I want to finish totally with the leather leaf fern before I fill in the pew markers with another other greens.
I only used about two large leather leaf stems to fill in this single marker.
Don't try to cram the greenery in too tightly. This is a small piece of foam and there are still other greens and flowers that need to be fitted into the foam as well.
You should still be able to see open spots in the florist foam after you are done with the leather leaf fern.
Now the framework is completely done. The size and shape of the final piece is established and we are ready to add in some other types of greenery to give some unique texture and subtle color differences to the design.
