DIY: How To Make Calla Lily Flowers Using Dried Corn Husks

7 comments
These Calla Lily flowers are fashioned from dried corn husks. Incorporate them to any floral arrangement project for a rustic flair. They also look great added to wedding bouquets and centerpieces.
MATERIALS
Dried Corn husks
Glue (any type but wood glue is recommended)
Glue gun and glue stick
Flat Iron ( Hair Straightener)
Clothes Iron
Scissor
Floral Wire
Floral Tape
STEPS
1. Prepare the corn husks to be used. They have to be fully dried. For the calla lily flowers, choose the husks that are wider.

2. Get two equal sized pieces and glue them together. You can use any type of glue but I recommend wood glue. I use wood parquet flooring glue.

3. As soon as they are glued together, use a clothes iron to flatten them even more. This will
help the husks adhere very well and will also give a smoother finish to the petals.
4. Using  the template (image 5), lightly trace it on the corn husk squares.

5. Cut the petals. Set aside.

6. To make the stamen or center, use yellow dyed corn husks. (images 7-8)
7. Glue the stamen to the center of the petal. Use glue gun as it adheres faster and better.

8. Glue the two bottom sides ( overlap).

9. Using a hair iron, gently curl the edges for a more realistic look.

10. Wrap the stem with floral tape.
