During Chinese New Year in Singapore, you can find these "Bump Chenille Stems" at the many temporary stalls that sell Chinese New Year decorations.
A very friendly stall owner had taught me how to make a flower with these bump chenille stems. You can make this flower to decorate your home and office during Chinese New Year. I find it can also be used as a fashion accessory.
You can see in this picture how I have used it as a decoration for Chinese New Year.
I've made and uploaded a video demonstration to share with you "How to Make an 8-Petal Flower using Bump Chenille Stems". It is simple to make and is suitable for children art and craft.
