For this tutorial, the tutor be illustrating to you how to create a circular wreath tribute using a re-purposed and eco-friendly mechanics (chicken wire and twine).

There are a number of different funeral flower arrangements available to offer your clients. Funeral wreaths in particular are one of the most popular, especially for close friends and relatives as the circular shape represents the eternal cycle of life; no beginning or end

It is important when discussing the designs with your customer, to be patient and guide them towards the perfect design based on the deceased individuality and personality. 

In this arrangement, we are using complementary colours, red and green within the composition. This refers to colour harmony derived by choosing two colours from opposite sides of the colour wheel.
