SUMMARY- I was enthralled reading this book and trying out a few of the leaves - haven't gotten to the flowers yet. His instructions are clear and well broken down, and it looks like magic as the components build up - I can't wait to try and put an ivy wreath together. If you have trouble following the written directions, there is an instructional DVD that comes with it. Making the rocks, branches and stems that the flowers and leaves attach to are ingenius and very doable - I love, love, LOVE this book!
