Step 01: Prep the flowers.

Technically, you want all the components to have a flat-back to adhere properly to the peg. Unlike the Santa Claus ornament which is pretty difficult to have a flat back (unless you saw it in half), you can remove the backing and cut off the stem at the back of the flower to achieve a flat back.

You may also want to add an additional dot of hot glue inbetween the petals to secure the petals and the stamen.
