Directions:

1. Twist several vines of ivy together and secure with green floral wire.

2. Wind the satin ribbon through the entire garland, gentle tucking portions of the ribbon into the ivy.

3. Heat an electric skillet and add the pan melt glue. Dip stems of largest blooms into the glue, then place the blooms
