  • First off, you’ll want to make the stems for the flowers. For each stem, I cut one green popsicle stick in half, and used both halves along with one whole green popsicle stick to create the stems
  • Place your whole stick down in a vertical position, and glue the 2 halves in a V formation at the bottom, with the cut sides facing down – Just like the image above
