Table Piece

I had an idea to make this from a very long time but I never actually got the time to make it. Finally its done n I like the result.

The sparrows n basket is ready made. I decorated it with nylon stocking flowers, ribbons, grass, berries etc. 
I painted some tiny rocks to resemble eggs.

Hi everyone will be posting instructions on making this big butterfly soon.

Straw Flowers

I made these flowers with drinking straws. Its a little hard work and takes some time but worth the effort. I remember learning them as a kid but made them on my own for the first time. Would love to make a bouquet soon but with brighter flowers.

I made a daisy. It takes a lot of work especially the centre. It has about 34 petals. I have made a aisy earlier but did not turn to be as beautiful as this one. I followed a you tube to make this one:

Here are the pics of the one I made

Nylon Stocking Butterflies

I made some new butterflies yesterday with nylon stocking. I seem to be addicted to make these butterflies. I have been experimenting with various shapes, sizes and patterns.

To make these butterflies I have taken plain nylon stocking and then made the patterns with a black marker. Its a little difficult to make but then the end result is beautiful.

The Green n black butterfly is a little untidy because it was my first attempt but then I improvised on the blue n black one.

This butterfly is pretty big n measure about 10 cm in length and it was a task to stick all the beads on it but I love the end result.

These carnations are made with nylon stocking and are very easy to make. I made them after viewing a tutorial on you tube:

These are the pics of the carnations I made.

Paper flower Bouquet

These flowers are made of crepe paper. Its a tedious task to make them as there is a lot of cutting required.

Paper flower Bouquet

These flowers are made of duplex paper and are really tiny. They measure about 1 cm each.

Peony Bouquet

This is to be given as a gift to someone. Hope she likes it.

White Flower Bouquet

This bouquet was made for Xmas for a relative. The white flowers are very simple to make but look very beautiful. I just added a bead in the centre. The pink flowers are made with soloba wood and i added some artificial red berries.

Calla Lily Bouquet

I made this calla lily bouquet a while back. Its very easy to make and looks beautiful.
