2. To make the stem, glue a piece of green craft foam around the cardboard tube, using masking tape to secure it until the glue dries.

3. Push the foam-covered stem through the holes in the foam petals and set an egg in place for the flower center. For added stability, place a sealed sandwich bag of uncooked rice or beans inside the stem to anchor it.
