steps

  1. Place vase on its side and partially cover with moss (do not cover inside or bottom of vase). Stretch wire over moss and around vase; tie ends of wire to secure moss to vase. Rotate vase, and tuck more moss under wire to cover any exposed glass.

  2. In the same manner, fasten stems atop moss with wire, letting catkins overhang vase's rim. Wire together several stems end to end -- about four times as long as the vase is tall -- to form a handle, and bend it to span the vase. Anchor both ends of handle with twists of wire. Clip stem bottoms even with base of vase.
