- Large safety pin
- Ribbons (at M&J Trimming; www.mjtrim.com)
- Apple basket (at Michaels; www.michaels.com)
- Vase or bowl
Attach a large safety pin to end of ribbon and use it to weave ribbon between vertical basket slats. If desired, tie ribbon ends into an oversize bow. Use an assortment of ribbons in a variety of complementary textures, shades and patterns, but stick to one color palette in floral bouquet. Arrange flowers in a vase and place vase in basket. If vase isn't tall enough, place pebbles in bottom of basket to extend vase's height.
