How to Make Spring Flower with Wire and Nail Polish

DIY-Spring-Flower

Create some magical looking flowers with some nail polish. Surely, every lady has a nice collection of nail polish at home, so this project will be cheap as you don’t need to make a big investment and buy lots of supplies. You will need some crafting wire to create the frame of the flower. Then comes the most exciting step, creating the color of the flowers. This is a rather slow process, so you will need a lot of patience. And the following materials:

• a bunch of bottles of nail polish;
• some strings of wire;
• a couple of wire cutters;

Before starting though, you should put some newspapers on your working surface as you will probably be making a bit of a mess. Start painting and cover the edges of the frame. Fill the petals with nail polish and try and hold the flower in such a way so the nail polish won’t fall on your working surface. Then wait until the nail polish dries, wait 20-30 minutes and apply another layer. Let the seconds layer dry too. You can also add glitter or apply some small decorative elements, such as pearls on the petals. You can also create jewelry with this technique, such as brooches or pendants as they will be a really nice gift for someone special.

    To fill in petals you need a magic wand to apply the polish ;-)

    I have made one of these flowers and am now totally hooked, I have made lots of different kinds of flowers but these are the best, thank you

    Wish there was a video that shows how to do this. How to bend the wire just right to make the flowers, how to get the nail polish to actually fill in like that, etc.

      go to youtube, there are some videos that are really good, unfortunately it is not easy to do in big leaves and petals like the beautiful pink she did. youtube.com/watch?v=LL-iZPALUes

    I’ve used this method years ago to fix the holes in screens that birds made with their beaks. The flower idea is great!

    this are really beautiful, is there a tip to make long leaves, and biger petals…I just did some, but it works in small flowers only.

    I watched the video, which someone should tell them to move camera with the hands, couldn’t see some of it. My thought would be dipping wire in polish like you do bubbles. I’m going to try it and see

    Would be better if video included, instead of having to go find one !

    This is not really a new craft. When I was very young, I remember seeing some older relatives making flowers with wire and dipping them into some kind of plastic material that filled in the wire space and dried ctransparent. I love this twist on it as nail polish comes in so many colors.

    Is it fragile?
    if make for ring, will it crush easily?
