Step 1: 

Measure roughly 3 inches and make a straight cut through your pool noodle. This will be your flower pot.

Step 2: 

Cut about 1 inch off of a flower-shaped pool noodle. If you don't have a flower-shaped noodle, you can use a round one. 

Step 3: 

Cut one inch off a green pool noodle for your leaves. If you cannot find a green pool noodle, you can use green pipe cleaners for leaves. 

Step 4: 

Decorate your flower pot with some washi tape, or whatever else you might have.

Step 5: 

Cut the green circle in half. Fold one of the halves and smush it inside the hole of the flower pot base.

Step 6: 

Take the pointy end of the skewer and poke it through the flower. Move it back and forth a few times to make a nice, large hole.

Step 7: 

Push the flower to the blunt end of the skewer. Starting just below the flower wrap a pipe cleaner tightly around the skewer.  Wrap tightly until you have covered about half of the skewer.

Step 8: 

Hold the end of the pipe cleaner against the skewer, then push the pool noodle leaves onto the pointy end of the skewer. The pipe cleaner will push through the other side of the leaves. Pull the pipe cleaner through and finish wrapping the rest of the skewer.

Step 9: 

Stick the skewer into and through the flower pot base.

Step 10: 

Cut the piece of excess skewer poking through the bottom of the flower pot.

Step 11: 

Place a glue dot in the center of the flower and add a puff ball.  You can add another on the back as well.
