3. Start wrapping your twine around one toothpick, then around the toothpick directly across from it. Loop it again to a toothpick across the circle, and adjacent to the first one you wrapped. Continue like this until you’ve looped the twine around all the toothpicks at least twice.

6. Pull the flower off the toothpicks. You might have to sacrifice a toothpick or two at first, but you can re-glue these to make more flowers.
