Materials (stemmed flower):
12"-long wooden dowel (we used a Panacea floral plant stake)

To make a stemmed blossom:
Use a glue gun to attach the flower to the top of a dowel. Make several and arrange in a vase.

To make a pin:
Sew a pin-back to the flower. If you want to attach the pin to a stem, glue a piece of felt to the top of the dowel and pin the flower to the fabric.
