wire flowers again

For those of you who want to have  a go , the how- to of making wire flowers, specifically poinsettias , appeared in todays AIM advent calendar ( or day 19 here).Shelly Norris, who taught me did also write a tutorial for AIM. It is great, Shelly!

Good luck!! It is fun, easy , addictive and makes wonderful presents , as you can see from the nursery above:-)

For those of you who want to know where to buy wire : the wire is 34 gauge gold;in the USA it is readily available on-line, you can also find it on ebay and in British on-line stores.


  1. Gracias por toda la informacion para hacer esas preciosas flores.
    A ti te han quedado fantasticas.

  3. Shelly Norris does quarter scale , but I am not as clever as she is!!!!
