Paper Easter lily tutorial
Greetings from California! I’m here on the beaches of Ventura enjoying the crafter’s paradise at Craftcation where I’ll be speaking and doing a workshop (anyone here???), but in the mean time…let’s learn how to make some potted paper Easter lilies, shall we? I think Easter lilies are some of the most lovely, delicate, and pure creatures–the perfect image for spring. Last year I showed some ways to wrap up some real ones to give as host/ess gifts, but how cool would it be to make a paper lily and give as a gift in a pot?!
Click below for full tutorial!
Materials:
  • double-sided crepe paper
  • scissors, wire
  • wire cutters
  • pot
  • moss
  • floral foam
  • lily template (download here)
INSTRUCTIONS:

Step 1: Cut out the template here and place it on a fold with the crepe grain going vertically.

Step 2: With the edge of scissors, curl each petal out.
Step 3: Bring the two edges of the lily together to form a cylinder and glue the sides together.
Step 4: Glue a piece of wire in at the base.
Step 5: Pinch the bottom together.
Step 6: Cut out a piece of green crepe paper going against the grain. About 1/2″ wide is good and 18″ in length.
Step 7: Wrap it around the piece of wire.
Step 8: Cut out leaves with the grain going vertically and insert those periodically down the wire. Lilies have lots of leaves so go crazy!
Step 9: Make the inside stamen of the lilies by wrapping the crepe together vertically like a joint and gluing 3-5 of them inside.
Step 10: Insert a piece of floral foam into a pot.
Step 11: Cover with moss.
Voila!
