The base is dried clematis branches from the garden, twisted around each other and then tied in a couple of places with twine to keep it together. The clematis branches are tough as old boots and tend to not snap, so they are a good one to use and you can add more and more to get the thickness you need. I like mine this size though as it allows the flowers to take centre stage. Here I’ve used eucalyptus which I adore the scent of, then used a few heads from eryngium tucked through the gaps in the clematis branches and finally one large head of dill.
