How to Make a Teacher Floral Favor

Give thanks and show how much you appreciate your teacher with a Floral Favor! Grab a pot, fill it with shred and then create an adorable flower out of chenille stems and poms. Crafters of all ages can gift the colorful flower to their favorite teacher so it can be displayed on their desk all school year long!
  • 1 Create the flower's petals

    Take five orange chenille stems and bend both ends of each stem into a spiral that curls in towards the center of each chenille stem for a total of ten spiral petals for the flower.

  • 2 Create the flower's leaves

    Take two green stems and bend a spiral on only one end of each stem, leaving two to three inches unbent at the other end. These are the two spiral leaves for the flower.

  • 3 Combine the flower's petals

    Take the five orange coiled flower petal stems and hold them all together at their stem centers with the five coils on each end touching. Use a third green stem and art the stems' center, wrap it around the five orange stems right at their centers three times to hold them together.

  • 4 Attach the flower's stem

    Next, twist the two green stems together down about 2" in length beneath the joined together coiled orange flower petals.

  • 5 Attach the flower's leaves

    Add the two green spiral leaves, one on each side of the green twisted stem and continue twisting the four greem stems together all the way down to the bottom of the green stems.

  • 6 Cut the floral foam

    Cut the floral foam into a 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" cube.

  • 7 Add the floral foam to the pot

    Glue the floral foam cube into the bottom of the clay pot.

  • 8 Add the flower to the pot

    Push the twisted bottom end of the chenille flower stem into the center of the floral foam so it stands up in the pot.

  • 9 Add the pom pom to the flower

    Stick the 1" pom pom in the center of the spiral orange flower petals.

  • 10 Add the paper shred to the pot

    Add some natural paper shred on top of the flower foam to finish the flower pot.
