Hand-held bouquets serve as decorative accents. They also provide a place for your hands to go while walking down the aisle during a wedding or other formal event. Making a hand-held bouquet from calla lilies allows you the ability to make your own outfit-accentuating floral piece featuring a plethora of lily flowers. Varying in colour from white to blue-black and every tone in between, calla lilies make attractive hand-held bouquets for a variety of uses.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- 3 calla lilies
- 3 grapevine lengths (measuring 1 foot each)
- Satin fabric (12 by 12 inch square)
- Hot glue gun with glue
Spread the square of satin fabric to ease out the creases and wrinkles.
Lay the three calla lilies down on the centre of the paper, making sure the tops of the blossoms overlap the top edge of the fabric by 2 inches.
Snip the bottoms of the stems so that they are about an inch shorter than the bottom edge of the fabric.
Place the three sprigs of grapevine into the arrangement, making sure to place one of them underneath the central flower.
Wrap the satin material around the flowers and grapevines from both sides, making a sort of cone or funnel wrap around the plants.
Squeeze a dot of hot glue onto one of the fabric ends, and adhere it to the other side of the satin fabric. Do this after wrapping it around the flowers snugly. Let it dry for 10 minutes.
Add finishing embellishments to the bouquet such as glitter spray, glue-on gems and silk ribbons.
