The Bouquet Stem Holder (stick ’em) attaches around and firmly holds the flower stems in place. Its multiple fingers are designed to grip the inside of a Perma-Plastic cemetery vase* or standard on-site permanent metal vase. *Not for Hard Plastic Cone Vase with Spike.
Measures 4.25 IN (top to bottom) folded and actively holding flower stems. Gripping friction fingers measure 3 IN wide at top and narrow to 2.25 IN at bottom in gripping (closed) position. Open/ unfurled linear measurement 8.5 IN.
Coated green floral wire may be substituted for shown grey clips for added use flexibility. Wire accommodates various stem thicknesses for added Holder flexibility. Barrel encasing flower stems may be shorted at either end using strong scissors or wire cutters as barrel is made of plastic.
ACTION: Wind green wire around barrel of closed Holder to secure stems within. Insert with holder fingers extended into vase … stick ’em … flowers are secure.
Made to keep the flowers in the vase and it does the job!
