Step by step guide to make Kokedamas

  • Place a piece of moss with the green side up, on a table;
  • Place the (wet) floral foam in the middle of the moss;
  • Prick the metal wire through the floral foam and make a hole, so that you can pull the string through to hang up the ball;
  • Place some potting soil around the floral foam. Now fold the moss around the floral foam, creating a ball;
  • Wrap the nylon thread around the ball creating a net;
  • Make holes in the ball with the metal wire and stick the green plant cuttings in the holes;
  • Spray your floating plants with water and enjoy the summer!
