When making your rose wedding bouquets, make sure all your flower stems are clean and free of thorns and leaves. You don't want to leave anything that could cause thorn pricks or snag delicate dress fabrics. Press the additional stems firmly against the clay.
This will help hold the stems in place until you are finished adding the stems.
Continue to add stems until the inner bouquet handle is completely concealed from all angles.
Squeeze the stems tightly against the clay to ensure they are embedded into the clay.
