Wires of differing guages are used to support the cut plant materials.  Loop stitches hold the ivy leaves, whilst cross or t-wiring is used to support the carnations.  The technique of wiring allows the cut plant materials to be manipulated and positioned where necessary, as well as removing the bulk and weight of the stem.

This is a fundamental skill that is required in floral design, especially useful for creating wedding work.
