Instructions for foam flowers
1. Cut narrow strips from chair cushion foam to be used as stems.
2. Paint the stems. Allow to dry.
The stems have a tendency to curl a bit after they are painted. Place them under a heavy book to straighten if necessary.
3. Use craft foam cut-outs from the dollar store for the flowers, or cut shapes from sheets of craft foam.
4. Poke a hole through the center of the flower and through the painted stem. Push a paper fastener through the flower and stem to secure them together.
5. Draw leaves on a green craft foam sheet and cut out.
6. Hole punch the leaf twice near the bottom of the leaf. Insert a green straw as shown in the photo.
7. Glue bits of yellow craft foam to the center of each flower for pollen.
Place flowers and leaves in a plastic vase. Display for all to enjoy.
This bouquet is a beautiful gift and a welcome sign of spring!
