Shape the leaf, using the picot in the center as the tip. Twist the wire together at the base of the leaf. (View E.)

Cut the excess wire, and use the floss from the two tails to camouflage the twisted wire. (View F.) You can twist the floss overtop, and tie once to secure. If you prefer, you could work a couple more stitches using a steel crochet hook overtop of the twisted wire.

When you’ve hidden the wire, you can weave the ends into the back of the leaf. (View G.)
