Decorative wood has been since long used in flower arranging. It has been called ‘drift wood’, ‘ cypress knees’, ‘ weathered wood’, ‘ghost wood,’, ‘dried wood’, but for our purposes is really decorative wood, because it can beautifully decorate a flower arrangement
As each piece is unique (there are no two pieces of wood that are identical), the possibilities of decorating your arrangement are truly endless and no 2 flower arrangements will be the same. Each piece will have a unique identity and individuality.
You can alter the original form by adding extra pieces as legs for achieving nice physical or visual balance. If you want to combine the pieces in one, drill a hole in each piece, and use a sturdy branch to fit neatly in the holes. Dip this into glue and force the sections together as a connecting peg.
You might need to prune a bit for a piece to really fit nicely in your decoration. At times the wood is an added support to your piece, but most of the times it is really the dominant element of your design. You can even form your piece of wood to become the container for your arrangement.
Make sure that you don’t add the wood just as an afterthought in your arrangement. Rather think how to incorporate it early on, when you do your design, so it becomes an integral part of the design, in a way that if it’s removed, its empty place will be sorely visible.
