    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. Step 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.
