Instructions:

  1. Turn the mini tin bucket upside down and gently push the top of the bucket into the Styrofoam block, so that you will have left an imprint on the block.
  2. Use the knife and cut the Styrofoam block to the correct size, so that it will fit snugly into the mini bucket. You will have to cut the foam at a slant, to make provision for the fact that the bucket gets narrower towards the bottom. Do not cut away too much at once; cut a few small pieces away, measure it to the bucket and keep on cutting and measuring until the foam fits into the bucket. Note: The Styrofoam is very messy, so work in an area that will be easy to clean.
  3. Once it fits snugly into the bucket, use the knife to cut the foam level with the rim of the bucket.
  4. Galvanized bucket with foam insert.

  7. Cut the stems of the carnations shorter with the pair of pliers.
  8. Decide how to arrange them around the lollipop and stick them in place in the foam.
  9. Lollipop with carnations.
