Things needed for making Calla lilies are:
- Acetate Silk cloth material (Brown colour),
- Hot glue gun and yellow glue sticks (yellow colour is optional for glue sticks),
- Wired flower stems and clipper,
- 12 mm yellow and green paper tape,
- Polyester Soft Toy Stuffing ( I found one like a ribbon roll, yellow in colour),
- Measuring tape or ruler,
- Lighter, Candle.
In this tutorial, I will explain to make uses of long fabric which is an Acetate Silk instead of buying ribbon roll.Step 1: Take a thin stripe of Soft Toy Stuffing material ,
Step 2: Now apply glue on the wire and wrap the stuffing material around covering the wire.
Step 3: Make as many stems depending on the number of flowers you need (I made 8).
Step 4: Wrap the stems with yellow paper tape for about 3 inches (which will be shown as Stigma).
Step 5: wrap the rest of the stem with green wrapping tape until the tip of the stem.
Step 6: Now take the satin fabric, measure 14cm length, 26 cm width and cut the cloth exactly.(I am cutting 8 pieces for 8 flowers)
Step 7:Using a lighter (a candle or a match stick will be an option) to singe the border of the ribbon. Hold the border of your ribbon with two fingers, and lightly roll the lighter around the border of the ribbon(only for a few seconds).If you are under 18 do not make this attempt with out supervision.
Step 8: Fold top two corners towards the middle. (making a pointy edge oneside)
Step 9: keeping the intersection of the two corners as the main point fold bottom two corners away from the middle making a right angle shape.
Step 10: Using scissors cut a curve just as shown in the picture.
Step 11: Singe the border of the fabric towards the middle point leaving a small gap to insert the stem through. If you are under 18 do not make this attempt with out supervision.
Step 12: Using the middle gap which was not been singed, turn the material inside out.
Step 13 : place the stem through the gap so the yellow part of the stem is visible through the flower.
Step 14 : Using hot glue seal the opening with the stem.
Step 15: Cover the gap with the green tape.
Step 16 : Repeat step 8 until step 15 for as many number of flowers you need (I made 8 flowers).
Finally you should end up with a bunch of Calla lily flowers.
