- Cut 5" length of soft metal wire ( silver or gold) using a wire cutter.
- Shape it into a loop and twist the free ends of the loop together using pilers to shape it like a petal.
- You will require 5 loops for each flower. Make as many loops as you want and keep aside.
- Stretch the stocking fabric tightly over the loop.
- At the base of the loop, secure the fabric with the thread, and cut off any excess fabric.
- Make petals using different coloured stockings.
- Tie the artificial pollen together with thread and make small bunches.
- Arrange 5 petals with a pollen bunch in the centre around a stiff thick metal wire and tie them together.
- Wind the green adhesive tape from the base of the petals to the end of the thick wire to form the stem.
- About half-way down the stem, attach a couple of artificial leaves and continue to wind the green adhesive tape to complete the flower.
- Arrange the flowers to make a bouquet.
