This Anthurium flower is made using carrot and cabbage. Separate the leaf of cabbage
carefully without tearing. We just need the outer leaves which are perfect
and not damaged, to make this flower.
Many of us might have seen Anthurium flowers. Now cut the cabbage in
the shape of an Anthurium.
Next peel a thin carrot and cut out a long piece from the narrow part
at the bottom. Cut it into 4 pieces vertically. We can make up to 4
stigmas from one piece.
Peel the carrot pieces finely and make fine
projections with a sharp knife just like in the stigma of the Anthurium
Do this carefully by first drawing cross lines with the knife and
cutting very thinly without breaking the stigma. You can do this just on
the side which is displayed. Use the tip of the knife to poke the surface
of the stigma and just lift a bit finely. It will be good if you can do it
at least in the viewable area.
Now set the carrot stigma to the cabbage using a pin or long thin
stick. Now take a spring onion leaf and cut both the tips and insert the
stick into the leaf. This makes the stem of our Anthurium flower. Make
sure the stick is smooth so that the spring onion leaf wont tear
Anthurium flower is very easy to make and is good for beginners. It hardly takes 5 minutes. Remember
to make at least two to display it well with other flowers in a vase. So
try it out.
