How to Make Nylon Flowers

Save

Here is a really neat craft idea using either an old pair of nylons or nylon material you can buy at a local craft store. These flowers are very pretty and versatile in use. They can be used to decorate for a bridal shower or be made into a corsage. They'd be cute sewn onto a denim jacket or a fabric purse. Invite your girlfriends over for an evening of crafts or have a kids craft day.

Things You'll Need

  • Floral wire
  • Stretchy nylon material
  • Fabric glue
  • Floral tape
  • 35mm film canister
  • Optional - button or bead
  • Cut the floral wire into four 6-inch pieces.

  • Hold the film canister in the center of one piece of wire and bring the loose ends of the wire up to meet.

  • Twist the loose ends of the wire around the canister so it makes a round shape. Continue twisting the loose ends of the wire together to make the stem of the flower.

  • Remove the canister and you have the shape for one petal.

  • Repeat steps 2 through 4 three more times.

  • Cut your nylon material into four pieces about the size of the wire loops.

  • Stretch a piece of nylon material over a wire loop and glue to secure the material to the wire. Repeat for the remaining three loops and pieces of material.

  • Place the petals on top of each other.

  • Wrap the floral tape around the base of the petals and continue wrapping down around the wire until you reach the end. This forms the stem of the flower.

  • Open each petal out and shape however you wish to form the flower.

  • Glue a button or bead in the center of the flower.
