What you need:

Green craft foam
Long teriyaki sticks
Various colors of craft foam
Hot glue gun (parental assistance required)
Florist wire
Green florist tape
Scissors

What to do:

1. Cut approximately six leaves as shown from the
green craft foam starting with smaller leaves at the top
and getting larger as you move down the stick. Hot glue
onto the teriyaki stick.

2. Cut a 2"x8" rectangle from craft foam. Snip one long
side to create a fringe with the cuts approximately 1/4"
apart and 1 1/2" deep. Tightly roll the rectangle from
short side to short side and hot glue to itself.

3. Wrap florist's wire tightly around the base of the
flower and attach the wire to the teriyaki stick.

4. Cover the teriyaki stick and florist wire with the
green florist tape.
