Nylon Stocking Butterfly


Hi friends....
I'm very happy that the followers of our blog and likes on craft of ramya page are increasing every day. Thanks a lot for your encouragement. As I already told, I'm coming with the Nylon Stocking Butterfly today.

Everybody loves butterflies; they define the happiness in our garden. Butterflies have always been a part of craft, so why don't we try butterflies in stocking cloth. Stocking can be available in all art material shops and very popular in flower making. I'm sure you will try this craft.

This butterfly can be fixed where ever you want, on gift boxes or hat or something else. It is to decor room wall generally.

Materials needed:
 Nylon stocking cloth
 Aluminum wire  (silver colour)
Cotton
Nylon thread
Plier
Kundan stones
Glitters

How to make Nylon Stocking Butterfly:
First we need to make the wings. The aluminum wire plays an important role here. Prepare the shapes with wire.

Wind the wire around any cylindrical ring (You can use bottle caps or pain balm bottles as a ring) Take two different sizes of rings to make two different wings. One is smaller than another. Twist at the end and cut the excess with plier. Make two wings in both sizes.

Now we need to give shape to the wings. You can shape the wings in the way you like. Refer the picture for my butterfly’s shape.

Next wrap the wire with nylon cloth, gather at an end and thread it. Cut off the remaining cloth.

Then use some cotton or tissue paper to form a body. Cover the cotton with nylon and tie it with thread of same colour. Thread the stuffed cotton to bring the shape of butterfly’s body.

Now its time to attach the wings to the body. We have to attach the bigger wings first (one by one) then smaller wings below the bigger ones.

Finally make antennas with the same aluminum wire and glue it beneath the head.

You can add some glitters and kundhan stones in its wings to make it more attractive.

The beautiful butterfly is ready to fly into your heart. You can fix this to your flower bouquets now.
