Approximate Time 30 minutes
Cut about 2 inches off the end of each chenille and set both pieces aside. There are several different ways to make your flowers. You can fringe the ends by cutting thin strips around the filter edge. You can cut thicker strips to make larger petals, or don't cut the filter at all to make it resemble a rose. Insert the large piece of chenille stem into the center of the coffee filter about 1 1/2 inches.
Hold onto the small end and turn the flower upside down so that the long end of the chenille is sticking up. Grasp the center of the coffee filter and gather it around the small end of the chenille stem. Twist the smaller piece of chenille around the gathered filter to secure the flower in place. Turn the flower back over and fluff the petals out, as desired. Insert the stems into the floral foam. You could cover the foam with moss or shredded green paper to resemble grass.

I'll bet trimming the edges of the filters with those zigzag, etc shaped craft sisscors would make some interesting flowers, too. Can't wait to try this!
