What you'll need:

  • 1 ½ green chenille stems (per flower)
  • Red craft foam
  • Scissors
  • White craft glue or hot glue gun

How to make it:

  1. Set aside the ½ chenille stem for a later step. Take the full chenille stem and bend it in half. Starting at the bent end, twist the chenille stem around itself all the way up. When you reach the end trim it to make it even if needed.
  2. Cut out 1” tear drop shapes from the red foam, you will need 7 of these.
  3. Cut out ¾” tear drop shapes from the red foam, you will need 3 of these.
  4. Lay a 1” tear drop on the table, point side down. Glue the open end of the twisted chenille stem to the red tear drop petal.
  5. Glue a second tear drop behind the first tear drop (point side down), most of the tear drop in back will be visible. Repeat on the other side. Repeat again on each side, gluing them in a curved fashion (similar to a half circle). When you are done there should be one petal in the middle and 3 on each side.
  6. Glue one of the smaller tear drop petals on top of the green chenille stem. Glue the other two smaller petals overlapping the first one, point side down.
  7. Once these are all dry, bend and curve the foam petals to join both rounded sides together to form the flower. Glue in place and hold until dry, hot glue comes in handy here.
  8. Use the ½ chenille stem to bend the leaves into shape and twist around the stem.
