Nylon stocking flowers.

Form a loop of the silver wire, then pull over a coloured piece of nylon stocking and stretch it properly before you attach it with a thin copper wire that you wind hard on the stem so that the sock will not loosen. Cut off the nylon stocking. Make more of these petals and then put them together with stamen and a pistil (bought ready-made) to a flower. Attach a steel wire to the flower with a thin copper wire. Finally wind a green or brown slightly sticky paper tape around the stems.

Yellow Freesia, iris, a white hollyhock and a daisy.
Flower wreath.
Fine wood knot I found when we were out on a hill nearby. I drilled small holes that I put the flowers and branches in.
