Make nylon flower calla lily

 I love making flowers, specially for beautiful occasions. Calla Lily is widely cultivated in Africa, and is very famous because of it’s white spathe and yellow spadix. Here I went a little abstract by trying a lily in pink color.
Calla Lilies bring the feeling of peace and purity due to its color and wonderful elegance and are hence used in weddings.
To make these flowers

Nylon flower material

Things you will need:
  •  Ring sizes (6) and (8) {as a substitute use anything round with the diameters indicated}
  • Pink and white nylon
  • Floral tape
  • Wire
  • Stem wire
  • Plier and scissors
  • Napkin/ tissue or cotton
  • PVA Glue, mod podge
Check out complete details and availablility information in the post Nylon Material.

Nylon flower calla lily tutorial

  •  Take a piece of tissue paper, fold it twice and cut it in the shape shown above.
  • This will help you roll in on the stem wire without shaping it as you go.
  •  Now dab some glue at the starting and start rolling it over the stem wire.
  • Close and secure at the end with some more glue.
  • Let it dry.
  • Then wrap 2-3 layers of nylon over the tissue paper and your spadix is complete.


  •  To make the spathe, tie the rings sizes (6) and (8) together using a piece of wire.
  • Now wind the wire around the two rings to make a big oval-shaped ring, twist and cut with the plier.
  • Wrap nylon wire over it, be careful not to ruin the shape of the wire.
Follow the instructions for making petals and assembling the flower for 
starters in the post Basic Nylon Flower.
  • Now simply thread the petal (spathe) to the spadix, fold both the sides over each other and shape it.
  • The calla lilies are ready.

    Rather than using tissues for the spadix, cotton can also be used as an option. It is much easier to shape.

    good.. there are many flowers you can make without stamens too.. for making pollens yourself see this post for abstract painting.. you can use any kind of thread, i have used embroidery thread, woolen thread will be fine.. just make sure it's not very soft.. the frame's size is 8'x11'can't wait to see your creativity.. 🙂

    Sure Hani,thanks or the reply.I've tried CALLA LILLY today.First 3 were not that gud,bcoz of the size of spadix i made.Later it came out well.Will send u the fotos soon :)!!

  7. hey Toria did not understand your question quite well. If you mean where you can find the rings or don't have the rings. You can use the number i.e (6) and (8) as diameter of any circle or ring you can find around the house. 🙂 Let me know if you need any help..

  8. Toria says:

    Sorry I'm lost where do the rings go?
