What advice would you give someone starting this project? You will need a Lot more flowers then you think!

I put a little ball of gum paste on the wire end then inserted the wire into the bottom of flower from the bottom up with out going through. I then set the flower a side and left it dry over night. The next day flowers were stiff and the flowers stayed on the wire. a few did let go with to much movement so I just used gum paste glue to soften the flower and restick to the wire. Hope that helps:-) And thanks for the great compliment:-)
