Topic: Making your own Pistil and Stamens

The prefab pistil and stamens certainly are a timesaver, but if you're so inclined it's easy to make your own:

Very beautiful flower. Absolutely love your blog by the way. It's very useful and helpful.

Thank you so much! It makes me very happy to hear feedback like that. Motivating! I'll try to have another type of lily up soon. I keep running out of one material or another… ;)

Hi icequeen, your petals and leaves are beautiful, but the pistil and stamen are very incorrect (as are the ones sold by Wilton though); The pistil is much thinner with a little glob on top, and the stamens are almost T-shaped at the ends. Should be simple enough to also make DIY though. I've attached a pic of a real one for reference.

I do like your blog! Lots of very helpful info there--keep it up!

This ws made according to the book directions that come with the flower cutter set. It is a lot of work and beautiful. Here's my version.

I love how you had the closed bud on your stargazer! That's a really nice touch.

I LOVE the bud! It's one of the easiest things you can make, but it really adds a lot, huh? I think it would look really cool on a tiger lily (orange!)
