Things needed:

Empty milk cans

Cut the milk can in three different round shapes. The Diameters of these rounds are mentioned in the picture below.
Draw flower petals on the rounds-cut pieces.
Cut through the petals and take out the extras.
For each flower we need three layers with larger to smaller petals. Fix the petals one over another.
For the center florets, apply glue like small coin, and sprinkle mustard seeds or tea extract on it densely.
For stem, cut the news paper in a rough square, roll it from one side towards its opposite side, and glue the end.

Cut both ends, now we get a stiff paper stick.
