Use wire cutters and cut off stems from flowers, leaving approximately 1½" of stem. If stems have tubes, use an X-ACTO® knife to cut off the tubes.
Dip stems into hot glue skillet before inserting into the Styrofoam®. Insert flower heads into the Styrofoam®, alternating colors of flowers, until the foam is completely covered.
Cut 20" of ribbon and fold in half. Push T-pin through both ends of the loop and insert into the foam. It is recommended to put hot glue on the T-pin before inserting into the foam.
With the remainder of the ribbon, create a multi-looped bow. Hot glue the bow at the base of the loop.
