Use the yellow pipe cleaners to tie your green petals to the wire frame, as shown in the picture above.

Tie the yellow petals around the wire frame
Use some more yellow pipe cleaners to tie the yellow petals around the wire frame, as shown in the picture above.
Start making the center of the sunflower
Take the sheet of stiff plastic canvas and cut it into a circle large enough to fit in the middle of the wire frame. Then, take pieces of beige burlap and string them through the holes in the plastic canvas to make the center for the sunflower.
Continue forming the center of the sunflower
Continue threading the beige burlap through the plastic canvas, as shown in the picture above.
