HOW TO

  • Set up pipe-and-drape kit according to manufacturer's directions.
  • Attach top of trellis to horizontal pipe with zip ties (one tie per opening).
  • Spray-paint leaves and two-thirds of flowers, leaving a third of the blooms white; let dry overnight.
  • Use zip ties to attach leaves to trellis, creating a base.
  • Attach flowers by threading stems between leaf base and trellis.
