Chapter 7: Chicken Wire

Suppose you plan to design a large floral piece using branches and other heavy and thick floral stems. In that case, we recommend using chicken wire to add extra support to your designs. When we make a foam-free design, chicken wire is a must so that the flowers and greens have the support they need. Making garlands with wet foam is best if you use chicken wire which is also great when making floral sculptures. It is excellent for bridal bouquet designs and is a top-rated mechanic for many different design styles. Many times chicken wire can be shown as part of the design so it can become a design element that way.
