  1. Wax serrated knife with candle stub or paraffin. Measure and mark one 8" x 14" rectangle (A) and two 2" x 4" rectangles (B) onto foam block; cut out. Cut one B rectangle in half lengthwise to create two 1" x 2" x 4" pieces (C).
  2. Refer to diagram and use glue gun to glue B lengthwise to center top of A, forming 4"-tall structure. Glue C pieces to ends of B piece as shown.
  3. Use glue gun to glue votive holders to foam in straight line, two on top of B piece and one to top of each C piece.
  4. Wrap batting around votive holders, extending batting to edges of A; secure batting to foam with glue gun.
  5. Trace 8" x 14" base onto decorative paper and cut out; glue to bottom of foam.
  6. Cut 40 medium-sized leaves from ivy garland. Beginning at top edge of A, use glue gun to glue leaves to batting-covered foam; allow leaves to drape downward to cover foam. Continue adding leaves until batting is completely covered right up to edges of votive holders.
  7. Cut four larger leaves from ivy garland; use glue gun to glue one leaf to center front of arrangement, one to center back, and one to each side of votive holder grouping.
  8. Cut 18 medium-sized leaves from ivy garland; use glue gun to glue leaves to foam beneath first row of leaves attached in Step 6. Foam should be completely covered; trim leaf points as needed.
  9. Use wire cutters to trim daisy stems to 1" length. Glue and insert daisy stems into foam around base of votive holders as shown.
  10. Place candles in votive holders.
