I've made the individual roses on wires and am working on the leaves and filler flowers. But how am I supposed to put them together into a spray to put on the cake? Do I just group the wires together and wrap in floral tape? Any advice from you seasoned pros?

when ive done a spray (only a small couple) its been a case of thinking about what kind of layout i want, then starting to wrap. so strat wrapping the wire of the first flower, then add in the next leave, wrap, add the next flower, wrap. its really hard to explain!
its easeir to add one then wrap than add two and wrap, but maybe that just comes with experience.
i did a couple of small sprays, then put them together to make a bigger one.
i think there are videos on youtube which might be more help!

Thanks! That makes a lot of sense. I've done arrangements of silks in styrofoam, but the whole wrapping thing is foreign to me. I didn't even think of you tube. I'll go check it out.
