nature bound

A covering of realistic permanent leaves adds value and versatility to a cylindrical glass vase.

Covering a vase with leaves offers a creative, value-added treatment that appeals to consumers seeking an all-natural look. Here, ruffly permanent rhubarb leaves, bound around a glass cylinder vase with paper-covered wire, create an interesting receptacle for sprays of permanent garden roses and Viburnums. The rhubarb leaves are inverted, exposing their stalks and creating an additional design element.

Nature Bound

Wrap permanent rhubarb leaves, tips down, around a glass cylinder vase, and secure them in place with a rubber band. Trim the leaf tips evenly with the bottom of the vase.

Tightly wrap paper-covered wire around the leaves several times, and tie the wire to secure. Remove the rubber band.

Arrange permanent flowers and foliages into the leaf-covered vase.
