STOCKING FLOWER



Stocking flowers....You can make a variety of flowers using stockings.veryyyyy simple work.All you need is a little imagination .Actually i should thank my friend Nasreen for sending the photo of her work(since my dad could not send me my work photos) to publish in my blog.Nasreen and priya... one among my very best friends ... actually they came to learn craft works but our mental frequency was same.. and we became best friends..Oh!i think i have to start another blog to talk about friendship:)

OK.. lets come to our topic...

MATERIALS:

Stocking(different colours)
Wire size 12(for stem), golden colour(for petals)
Floral tape
Thread(to tie the petals)
Pollens
Cutting plyer(to cut wires)



Sorry Its out of focus in some places.will  try to rectify in my future videos. Thanks.

METHOD:

1)Cut the golden wire (length and number to be cut depends on the size and type of the flower and petal).
2)Now take one of the wire piece and fold it to get the shape you desire(like heart or oval etc. depending on the flower you wish to make.) by pressing the centre or pulling on either sides with your hands.
3)Now take the stockings and pull it over the petal tightly and tie at the end using thread. 
4)Cut off the excess stocking.
5)Make many petals(depending on the flower).
6)Cut thick wire (size 12)for stem
7)At the end of the stem make a small bend to fix the pollens.
8)Take 3-4 pollens and fold it at the centre and attach it to the bend stem and tie with thread.
9)Now tie all the petals(according to the flower) to the stem.
10)Cover the stem with floral tape.
11)Make leaves in the same way.

Our cute stocking flower is ready...Have to mention one thing...once saw in some TV channel , they used small bulbs in center of the flowers between the pollens...It looked really pretty.
