3. Place the wooden dowel rod in the center of your satin triangle.

Supplies needed to make a flower from craft foam
Instructions:

1. Start by choosing the color of your foam flower. I chose a deep pink but you can find craft foam in so many colors.

2. Using a plate or large bowl, draw a circle with your pencil onto the craft foam. The size of your flower will depend on how big you make your circle.

3. Now, you’re going to begin drawing a wavy line all around the circle, and continuing at an inward direction until you reach the very center. You don’t have to be an artist for this part, just do the best that you can.

4. Cut the line that you drew, beginning with the outside edge and working your way inside. Be careful that you don’t cut it in half. You want this long piece when you are finished.

5. Now, you need to wrap the strip that you have beginning with the outside edge and working your way inside. Basically, you are rolling it up to form a flower.

6. You can use hot glue as you go to keep your flower in place and be sure to add a drop or two in the center when you have the flower formed to hold it in place.
