Poke 2 holes just big enough for a pipe cleaner. Put the pipe cleaner from underneath of the cup and then down through the other hole.

Leaving most of the pipe cleaner as a stem twist the end of the pipe cleaner around itself.

Fold each piece in half and cut a triangular point. Glue a leaf to each stem by starting about 2 1/2 in from the bottom of the stem and wrap the leaf from the stem and apply glue. Let dry and arrange in a jar or vase. Enjoy.
