Making Nylon Flowers, Part 3: Making Plumerias

Making Nylon Flower Series:  Part 1 |  Part 2  |  Part 3

This is the last post to our Making Nylon Flowers series.  In this post, I'm going to show you how to make nylon plumerias.  I, personally, like the delicate, yet simple look of a plumeria, and the fragrance of one is out of this world fantastic. Although we can't quite replicate the fragrance, we can try to replicate a long lasting version of the plumeria flower. :)  I apologize in advance for being too wordy, there's a lot of information to explain and cover.  So, let's get started.


- Yellow /white variegated nylon (plumerias exist in a few other colors so this may be different)
- #24 white wire for making petals
- #2 stem wire
- #3 ring from the ring set
- nylon thread
- cotton balls
- light green floral tape
