This simple cotton pad and q-tip Calla lily craft is a great kids craft is brought to you by Flowers for Everyone. I am a big fan of flowers and love to have them in my house and this week the boys bought me a bunch of Calla lilies for the office, which inspired these stunning everlasting flower craft. Most people will have everything they need to make these in their home already.
Not everyone can have a flower delivery by Flowers For Everyone, so why not make these cotton pad Calla lilies instead. When my boys first started school they made me a mother’s day card with these on the front and I remember loving it. So instead of putting them on a card we decided to pop them in straws to make a bunch of calla lillies.

How to make a cotton pad calla lily craft
Calla Lillies are such a beautiful, stylish flowers and these are deceptively simple to make, but look amazing. I would be delighted to be presented with these.
First off you need to colour the end of your q-tip (cotton bud) yellow to represent the stamen of the calla lily.
Then you need to add a dab of all-purpose glue and attach your q-tip.
Then squeeze it together for the head of the lily.
Depending on the width of your straw you might need to add a dab of glue before putting the other end of the cotton bud in the straw.
We took a look at the lilies I had and noticed that some of them had two petals, so we used the larger oval cotton pads to create a second petal.
They look amazing in a vase and we had so much fun making them.
