Also, using this material, you can make a beautiful candlestick, decorate a Christmas tree with the help of a star and of course, equip your New Year's home with new and beautiful decorations. Christmas snowflake from foil Snowflake isthe main attribute of the New Year. Many of us make applications using paper, wire, cardboard, plywood, plastic and other elements. It's hard to do something new and surprise your family.

Such snowflakes possess extraordinary beauty and at the same time are very safe for use in the house. They do not burn your apartment, because the foil is safe for fire. They are suitable for decorating your yard, as well as for decorating indoors. Regardless of the weather, this material will retain its properties. A special master class on this subject will tell you how to create beautiful snowflakes with the help of FoylArt, without using special materials or possessing transcendental skills. A step-by-step instruction will explain all the principles, and the list of materials below will simplify the learning process. Forming material for working on a snowflakeNo, you do not need a special foil. Suitable is the most common choice in a standard roll. But, it is necessary to understand that heat-resistant foil, or too strong foil for work will not work. In addition, fingers will be extremely difficult to work with this format. The length of the material in this case is of no importance. The width of the roll is standard - 30 centimeters. Foil has beautiful properties: a reflection of silver. nevertheless, its not a strong composition can interfere with our work. Therefore, to create the subsequent needles of our crafts, we will need wires that will be twisted from the foil. How to work on such straws? It is necessary to take the scissors and with the help of an eye opener cut the foil strip to a width of 3 centimeters. For children or those with an eye problem, it is better to rely on the help of a ruler and a blunt pencil to make visible markings on the material. A cardboard template in the format 3 by 35 centimeters is also suitable. In order that the foil is not "broken" in the processwork, you should form long sections, using the entire length of your scissors and their blades. After the incision was made, a wide spreading of the ends of the scissors will help to keep the shape. Do so that the edges of the strips do not have burrs, or insignificant, but harmful incisions. This can interfere with the strip during its twisting. Also, it is not necessary to make a material of foil super-strong, folding it into sheets. When you try to separate these strips, in 90% just rip the material. Tips for twisting sausages from foil Whenour strips will be ready, it is necessary to take one of these and, using grasping movements, to crush the material across, using the entire length of the product. We crush the material until then, until we get the "sausage" in an uneven shape. The thickness of this sausage will be equal to 5 or 6 millimeters. Next, we squeeze the sausage with the thumb and index finger, using both hands and with a small pressure, we do the rolling movements. We move our hands from one side to the other. If suddenly there are uneven places, you should walk on them again. But, you do not have to press too hard on the material. The material should be rolled using the desktop or dostochki. But, avoid stiffness. The shape and surface of the material should be flexible, with a rough coating in a thickness of 2 millimeters and a length of 25 centimeters. This option is obtained from standard 30 centimeters of foil. It is worthwhile to understand that the torsion of strips is purelya mechanical work that does not require you to be overly observant. In order to not be bored in the process of work, you can listen to music, or watch a new series of your favorite TV series. A good New Year's film will do! Working on a snowflake So we came to the moment whento form your own version of the snowflake. This process will be lengthy and will require considerable attention from you. The first time it can not work, so you should do as many workpieces as possible. Remember - the scheme of the project is the same, but you can change it at your own discretion and add your own details. This will help you to create more incredible shapes of interesting snowflakes, which allow you to create your own version of the Christmas composition right at home. For work we need wire, scissors and of course, our foil - as the main element of the decoration. In the end, there will also be advice on painting such snowflakes and the only right way to preserve a new color. The most treasured action is the formation of an ordinary snowflake. Make it even a child! For her, you need to take five wires. Cut the half of the wire to bend the loop out of it in a round shape to a diameter of 1 centimeter, then - the shape is fixed and wrapped around the free end with the help of two tight loops. We get the middle of our workpiece with one beam. Next, the other half of the wire is cut into two parts. After, take another piece of wire and cut into 4 pieces. We take a quarter of the wire, we retreat from the end by 1 centimeter and make a bend. Next, we put on the hook received on the hook, place it evenly opposite the ray that we already have and wind its short end of the hook with the help of the ring axis for two turns in a tight form. In the same way, morefour rays that need to be arranged observing the symmetry parameters. In order for the whip to look beautiful, each wire must be fixed identically to the previous one, pushing the hooks under the circle from the same sides. We obtain the form of a ring on 6 rays. The first beam will be longer than the others, so it must be cut with scissors. Then, bend using a small centimeter of the length of a small stick of an elongated shape and fix it, the end in turn must be wrapped with the help of a straight part of the beam. We form such loops at each end of the rays. They are necessary in order for the snowflake to be conveniently suspended, also convenient for later to sew the product, or to connect garlands in a chain. Next, you need to take two whole wires to cut each of them into 4 pieces in equal size. We bend a quarter of the wire and without reaching the middle we apply it by means of a bend to the beam by 1 centimeter from the place where the fastening to the ring goes. Then, using a single turn, fix the product. For better retention, use a light movement to push into the place where there is a joint. In the same way, we fix 5 more particles. We take the whole wire in order to cut the product into 6 particles of equal sizes. Further, using a tight coil of a single kind, fix pieces that we got at a distance of 15 millimeters from the ends of each of the rays. So we finished the snowflake. Work Tips For those who want to form a large number of such snowflakes, you should also learn about the method of the garland. To do this, cut a piece of wire into a length of 3 centimeters and stick it through two loops and wind it around using a double coil of a tight kind. In order to give the garland a more flexible shape, you need to connect the ends of each snowflake to the other with a ring. Each ring is formed by using a wire to a length of 45 millimeters. Using the skills that you have accumulated for this lesson, you can create your own: unique and unique snowflakes. It is enough only to show imagination and think over your own forms of snowflakes with various shapes and sizes of the product. We must not forget that the basis of any snowflake is a six-ray star. Please note that the silver coloration of snowflakes is ideal for the New Year's mood and atmosphere. But, if you suddenly have a desire to experiment and make multi-colored versions of snowballs, it is enough to take acrylic paint in a can and spray it on the product from both sides. Thus, you can make gold, blue and white snowflakes, using a variety of aerosols! Candlestick made of foil - how to make?

It is necessary to take the usual cover from under the canned foodand depending on its size we select a candle. You can and vice versa. Then, the product should be wrapped with foil. Then, you need to cut off the foil strip by 10 centimeters wide. In length, the strip should be made 5 centimeters greater than the circumference of the cap. Then, it is necessary to twist the already known tourniquet. Then, it needs to be rolled into the ring and then, twisted in the place where the connection takes place. Thus, we get the shape of the hoop by the same diameter as our cap. Further, it is necessary to make a cut of the strips inThe number of five pieces per the corresponding width of 10 centimeters. The length will also depend on what the height parameters of your candle are. We make strips of 60 centimeters and twist five different variants of bundles. Each of them must be doubled. Then, they need to be fixed on the hoop as well as in the picture. We form three twists in order to lay out the pattern. Further, the hoop should be put in the cap and weave.
