Straw Lavender Flower Instructions
Step #1: Start With Gathering The Materials We Will Initially Require
Start the first step by gathering the materials that you will need at the beginning of its making. Get a purple-colored plastic straw and a pair of scissors.
Step #2: Cut Out Little Stripes Using A Pair Of Scissors
Now, flatten the straw a bit from its initial round shape. It will make it easier to cut. Leave a little gap at the end and cut little stripes on the straw. Do not cut it completely. The stripes must not be separated from the straw. And the gap must remain even and equal.
Step #3: Stick A Thin Double-Sided Tape On The Uncut Area
After you are done with cutting, get a double-sided tape. Cut a thin strip of the tape and leave the cover on the other side as it is. It will come into use later on. Now, place the tape on the portion that remains straight as a line, untouched, uncut. Make sure that the breadth of the tape matches the breadth of the uncut area.
Step #4: Start To Wrap The Plastic Straw Around The Stick
Take a dark green colored stick. It must be thinner than the usual plastic straw. Now, uncover the taping area which was left as it is. And carefully begin to wrap it around the green stick. Use the above-presented image to get a much better idea.
Step #5: Continue Wrapping The Plastic Straw
Continue wrapping it around the stick and see that you get the same pattern as in the image above. Do not wrap it completely towards the end. Leave some space to add the leaves and other things.
Step #6: Take A Light Green Plastic Straw And A Pair Of Scissors
Take a dark green colored plastic straw and a pair of scissors. Cut the straw a little bit into halves from one end. Take a look at the above-presented reference image to come to a better understanding.
Step #7: Cut It Diagonally Towards The End To Make It Pointed
After cutting it from the middle as in the above image, Make the edges of that same side, pointed. Look how precise the cutting is. Try to be careful and accurate to get the same needly pointy, tip, and equal from both sides.
Step #8: Wrap The Light Green Colored Ribbon Around The Stick
Take a dark green colored shiny ribbon. It must not be too thick. Look at the image portrayed above; it will surely guide you. Also, get the lavender flower stick back again. Now, wrap the ribbon strip slowly around the stick, that is the stem. Wrap it around the portion that is empty and does not bear lavender petals. Do not fold it completely though, just around the midway.
Step #9: Add The Light Green Colored Straw To Get The Leaf
Grab the partially cut green-colored plastic straw. Insert the stick (stem) into it. They will form the leaves. Take the help of the above visual presentation. It will provide you with a better idea.
Step #10: Now Wrap It Fully To Hold The Leaves
After placing the leaves right, keep wrapping the ribbon around. It will hold the leaves right and give them support and grip. This will give a very realistic effect.
Step #11: Give It Some Last, Finishing Touches Before The Final Look
Well, this is, however, the last step before the final reveal. In this step, give the final touches. Like, tilt the lavender from the middle, but just a little, and do that with complete delicacy. Otherwise, it will bend. This will make it seem real. It is just a little detail, but it adds to the overall impression and the appearance. Check for other details and make sure everything is done right. If you find a fault, fix it. And we are done.
