Stocking FlowersI have a disclaimer before I start.. the pictures are not impressive at all… For some reason, the lighting has been really bad and I’ve done my best with Google Picassa to make the tutorial clear…Sorry about that!

How to Make flowers using Stocking Cloth:

Supplies Needed:

  1. Stocking cloth for the leaves and flower
  2. Metal String
  3. Floral Tape
  4. Big Pearl
  5. Sewing Thread

SF1Step 1:

Wrap the metal string around a cylindrical structure and secure the shape by twisting it as shown.

SF2Step 2:

Slide the string out and you will have this structure.

SF3Step 3:

Shape the string a bit like a petal.

SF4Step 4:

Cut out a square/rectangular piece of stocking cloth.

SF5Step 5:

Stretch and wrap the stocking cloth around the petal frame.

SF6Step 6:

Secure the cloth by tying at the bottom using sewing thread of the same color.


Here is the petal after it has been wrapped with the stocking cloth.

SF8Step 7:

Trim off the extra cloth at the bottom.


Step 8:

Repeat steps 1 to 7 and make 4 more such petals.

Step 9:

Now for the center of the flower we will use a pearl.

SF10Step 10:

Start setting the petals around the pearl and wrap it using the metal string one petal after another.



Here is the flower after all the petals have been tied.

SF12Step 11:

Similar to how we made the petals, a leaf is made.

SF13Step 12:

The leaf is attached to the flower using the metal string.

SF14Step 13:

Wrap floral tape around the stem.

SF15The flower is complete!
