Step One

 

Start by making the topiary shape by placing the daffodil stems together and parallel next to each other. Start in the centre and work around in a circle to create a nice dome shape, while holding the stem just below the flower heads.

Step Two

 

Once the dome is complete use cellotape to bind the stems together at the base of the flower heads. This helps keep the lovely dome shape.
