Easy Stocking Flowers {Handmade Flowers}

Stocking flowers or nylon flowers are vintage DIY Flowers  These were very popular in the 70s

Since, we are living in an era where different is always unique and special  I thought why not give these old flowers some new love

 Today I am sharing a quick and easy tutorial on making Pansies  Simple cute flowers best for a little girls room or a baby nursery

These can also add new life to your craft room if you like!

The best thing about these flowers is that, You can shape the petals in any desirable form you want! Since you wrap a loop of wire in stocking it makes the petals flexible  Stocking flowers can be used as decoration in vases, jewelry and accessories


Even to make craft projects

like wall art, garlands, pillows and lamps prettier


To make vintage DIY flowers:


You will need
  • Ring size (2), (3) and (4) (simply means the diameter)
  • Stocking net
  • Floral tape
  • Nylon thread
  • Stem wire
  • Wire
  • Plier

 Flower Tutorial:


You will need five petals to make each Pansy 
2 Petals- Size (2)

2 Petals- Size (4)
  • Now to thread the flower together  Follow the tutorial to make a basic nylon flower
  • Make sure you keep your hand light on the petals  And keep their shape round
  • Finally using sharpie or marker add some shade at the center of the petals  This gives it an original look  And you are done!
