Any of you remember how to make flowers and leaves out of dyed nylon hose? We used to make them in the 1940s and 50s. I would like to make some. Thank you!

Different colored nylons, gold or silver wire, green floral tape.


Cut nylon and fit around wire, then twist. Continue until you have a complete flower. Make sure this is attached to a wire stem that is covered with floral tape. Make a lovely bouquet!

Nylon Flowers

This is no secret, but a craft that was very popular in Europe in the 70s. You take nylons (nylon hosiery, your old ones, worn and torn), any colour. You can dye them with any commercial fabric dye. You can also paint on them as if they were fabric. It is up to you to create the skeleton of whatever object you want to make, then pull the nylon over it and fasten with wire, if possible somewhere non-visible. Now you are finished! (11/02/2007)
