2) To make the stems cut strands of wire ranging in length from 9-15 inches.  Holding a a green piper cleaner and the wire at the tip, twist the pipe cleaner around to give it a stem look.

5)  Stuff the base of the vase with some of the shredded tissue paper, insert all of your doppleflowers and arrange them as needed.  Using a pen stuff the remaining tissue paper into place, holding the stems where you’d like them to stay in place.
