You can really just use a variety of chenille stems to create your own unique flowers, gluing a pom-pom in the center.
To make a flower like mine, start out by choosing two bumpy chenille stems in the color that you want your flower petals to be. Cut each bump chenille stem into four pieces, making sure to cut between the bumps. You should end up with 8 bump pieces.
Carefully bend each bump in half, and twist the two cut ends together. Your bent bumps should now look like teardrops; these will be your flower's petals. Glue the rounded edge of each chenille stem petal to a pom-pom. Start by gluing two on directly across from each other. Glue on two more directly across from each other and spaced evenly between the first two. Fill in the gaps left with the remaining four chenille petals. to make a flower with rounded petals, simply glue the twisted ends of the chenille stem teardrops to the pom-pom.
Glue a regular chenille stem to the back of your flower. Cut a green bump chenille stem in half, making sure you have 2 bumps on each piece. Fold each piece in half and pinch the ends together. Glue onto the flower's stem to look like leaves.
