Simple Stocking Net Flower

 ——————————

Let’s us try to make nylon stocking flower together.This tutorial is a very basic one. No intricate design whatsoever :)

You will need nylon stocking (exclusive for flower making,not to wear!) Either single or dual tone.

I used purple stockings, white stamens, green floral tape and silver wires in this tutorial. The colour can be changed accordingly to your liking.

*Tips : Buy brightly coloured stocking or darker colour.

*Ensure that the wires are not too soft as it cannot retain the shape of the flowers. Most crafts shop sells two type. The softer one is for making dip flowers while the harder one is for stocking flowers. Make sure you buy the correct one! The wires come in gold and silver along with few other colours.

1) First of all, cut the silver wires into 4. Then, make a loop by twisting the end together by using a plier.

*You will need to twist 5 wires to make 5 petals flower

2) Next, carefully wrap the loop with stocking, starting at one end.

The back and front of the petal must be fully covered and stretched before tying it with thread. Do not overstretch it as the stocking can be torn easily.

Repeat the step until all 5 petals are nicely wrapped. Snip off the excess stockings with a pair of sharp scissor.

*Tips : Hold the petal as the picture below. Using your left thumb and ring finger, stretch the excess stocking while cutting it. This way, you’ll get a clean cut, and save the stocking a lot.


 There you go, 5 petals ready to be assembled.

*If you wish to make flowers with more petals, like roses, you need to make around 14 petals or more.

Divide the white stamens into 2 by using a floral wire. The amount of stamens used are according to your liking (and budget of course)

Hold the stamens and proceed by adding a petal to it. Tie the petal and the stamens together with thread.

Hold the stamens and proceed by adding a petal to it. Tie the petal and the stamens together with thread.

Then , tidy up the joining point with the floral tape.

There you go, a simple nylon stocking flower

The use of metallic or plastic shapes helps to obtain similar leaves.

To decorate the flowers, many plastic or foam components are available.

fabrication

The making of a flower

to make a leaf or a petal, the wire is bent to shape, then the stocking is stretched all over it.

The stocking is attached with the sewing thread.

The resulting petals are attached to one another with the sewing thread. Floratape is then wrapped at the base of the leaves to hide the thread.

After repeating the previous steps several times … here is the result !

Daisy Flower

Stocking  flower daisy
 
YOU WILL NEED: 
  • Rings sizes (3) and (4) {use circles of diameters 3 and 4}
  • Stocking net in various colors
  • Daisy bud {you can make you own by sprinkling and gluing tea over a plastic or paper and painting it over}
  • Floral tape
  • Nylon thread
  • Wire and stem wire
  • Plier and scissors

Wind the wire around the ring, twist at the end and cut the remaining using the plier. Wrap nylon over it, thread and cut the excess. Stretch the circle to give the petals a ray-shape. You will need 11 petals of ring size (3) and 13 petals of ring size (4) for each daisy. Leave a longer wire at the end to thread on the stem wire accurately.

When all the petals are ready. Start threading each petal on the stem wire, below the bud. Keep shaping and securing the petals in position tightly as you go threading all of them.

hen your done threading all the petals, wrap floral tape around the stem to hide the wire and thread. Make leaves and attach to the flower.

You can also glue the petals inside the bud

The daisies are really to brighten up your summers and greet you every day and night.
