For the string of greens and orange we attached thin wire to each piece of foliage, then tied these to some package string. The last bit of wire we wrapped completely with package string and tied it together.
This is how it looked from below.
And this is how the finished piece looks from the top and tied onto a gift. Pretty!
The other packages are made by tying string onto the packages and attaching bits of greens, berries and autumn florals.
