- Use wires or pins to make something sit in place

- Use the small pieces that you cut off if possible
- When you are creating it keep standing back and having a look at it
- Be careful of using big stems as the oasis will disintegrate
- Use an odd numbers of flowers
- Ask yourself:—is there movement in it? Is the foliage varied and of different shapes? Are there interesting flowers?
- Gypsophila is a good filler flower
