Step by step instruction to make paper Calla Lily:
Step 1: Download the free template for Calla Lily petal and paper vase.
If you don’t have a printer, just apply a paper on your screen and trace the template with a pencil.
Step 2: Grab the pastel chalk, scissors, glue gun, wire
Step 3: Color the petal
Using a dried tissue paper or fabric cotton to help color the pastel chalk easily.
Blending the yellow, lime green and green to help the petal more realistic. Please remember to color both sides of the petal.
Step 4: Make the Calla Lily petal without any tools
Use your fingers to stress out the paper and make the petal curves. Please refer to the video tutorial above for clearer instruction.
Step 5: Make the realistic stamen from very simple suppliers
Wrap a tissue paper to the head of wire gauge#20 to make the stamen core shape
Cover a lot of white glue and grounded rice on the stamen head.
The natural color of rice is quite similar to the natural white stamen Calla lily. After trying with the yellow stamen, I prefer the white one.
I have tried many ways to imitate the original stamen for previous 7 flowers, this is the best and the last one, so I share this way only.
Step 6: Insert the wire to a 6mm pvc tube and wrap it by floral tape
Use the glue gun to attach these together firmly.
Step 7: Wrap the petal over the stamen and use the glue gun to attach them together.
