Learn to make nylon wedding lily!

In this post I am sharing a very simple tutorial to make a beautiful lily with nylon (stockings). This flower needs one big petal. Honestly, don’t think it’s easy, it requires some practice before you make a bigger petal for this flower. Smaller petals are easier to cover with nylon. But the bigger it gets the challenging it is to cover it without distorting it’s round shape. Let’s check out how these look, before getting started with the stocking flower tutorial (nylon flower tutorial).

  • Take a piece of tissue paper, simply fold it twice and cut in a linear shape. This will help roll the paper on the stem wire without fold and shaping it and make it easy and smooth.


  • Now dab some glue at the starting and start rolling it over the stem wire.
  • Close and secure at the end with some more glue.
  • Let it dry.
  • Then wrap 2-3 layers of nylon over the tissue paper and your spadix is complete.


  • To make the flower. Take the ring size (8), wind the wire around it, twist and cut the rest with the plier.
