Step 2

Paint the egg cartons inside and out with paint. I mixed the white with a little red to get 2 colors of pink. Let paint dry.

Step 3

Cut 4 petal for each cup. Cut the edges off. Curve the edges of each petal. Where there is no petal cut a triangle where there is supposed to be 2 petals.

Step 4

Poke 2 holes just big enough for a pipe cleaner. Put the pipe cleaner from underneath of the cup and then down through the other hole.

Leaving most of the pipe cleaner as a stem twist the end of the pipe cleaner around itself.

Cut the 9 x 12 felt sheet in half vertically. Fold each half in half again and cut. Take the halves and Fold each in thirds and cut a part. Fold each piece in half and cut a triangular point.

Glue a leaf to each stem by starting about 2 1/2 in from the bottom of the stem and wrap the leaf from the stem and apply glue. Let dry and arrange in a jar or vase. Enjoy.
