If you have never done this kind of beadwork, it's better to immediately watch the video with this kind of work.

We select materials for beadwork

What is needed for weaving animals?
Almost all beasts made from beads are made from the same materials.
For their manufacture it is required:

  • Small beads;
  • Large beads;
  • Special thread, wire or line;
  • scissors;
  • Accessories;
  • scheme.

As for the last point, if youNever had business with such work, then for the first time it's better to choose something simpler. For beginners, the simplest crafts that do not require a wide variety of materials are suitable. To learn how to use schemes, it's enough just to follow the figure and a detailed description of the work process.
How to choose beads for weaving animals? In the markets such materials are sold mainly of two types - Chinese and Czech beads. The first few are cheaper. But if you want the bead animals to turn out beautiful, it's better to stop on the second option. Unlike Chinese, Czech has the same size and color beads. And this guarantees a good density of beadwork and a successful combination of shades.
How to choose a thread for weaving animals? The right choice of such material contributes to the creation of a beautiful craft. In this case, it is better to choose a line. Its advantage is that such a thread is very strong and practically invisible in the product. Animals made from beads on the line are especially beautiful.
But for beginners it may seemQuite a difficult tool. In order to learn how to weave a line, you need some skills. Therefore, it is better to choose a special thread or wire for the first time. It's easy to work with her. For beasts from beads, the main thing is that it should be very strong.

Octopus bead

To create an animal you will need:

  • Beads of suitable color;
  • Yellow beads;
  • wire;
  • scissors.

Manufacturing process:

  • For the craft, cut the wire length of about 50 centimeters. We collect 7 beads of the main color and shift them to the center;
  • After that, we separate three elements and push one end of the metal thread through four beads. Get the loop. We do everything according to the scheme;
  • In the next stage we we sew 5Elements. Through them, thread the other end of the metal thread. Again you will get a loop. Fix it in such a way that the beads are as close as possible to each other;
  • A similar method requires nine rows. After that, all the beaded tiers should be straightened so that the workpiece acquires a volume;
  • The tenth row should be weaved according to this principle: First put on three beads of the main color behind them one yellow, then through the yellow element the loop is made, the end of the wire is passed into the last bead and three more beads of the primary colors are put on. Behind them one more yellow and again we make with it a loop, pushing the end of the thread into the bead of the main color. Bend well tighten and again put on three beads of the chosen color. It turned out half-naked octopus with eyes. The scheme of weaving this element is presented below;

  • Next, continue to weave in a parallel way. We attach this neck and body to this method. We make nine more rows;
  • Then we begin to make tentacles. For this weaving, divide the entire row of beads into three elements. In every three beads it is necessary to pass pieces of wire about half a meter in length;
  • These are future tentacles. Their weaves are necessary just like the body. That is, a parallel method;
  • After the creation of all the paws of the animal, they must be secured in the correct position with the aid of a fishing line.
  • The octopus is ready!

    Parrot of beads

    Such birds from beads look bright and unusual. The work is not very difficult, the main thing is to understand the most complicated processes.

    To make this wonderful bird, you will need:

    • wire;
    • Blue seed beads;
    • Red seed beads;
    • green beads;
    • Yellow beads;
    • Black beads;
    • Purple beads;
    • scissors.

    Manufacturing process:

  • Begin the weaving of the bird from the beads from the head. We take wire with a diameter of 3 mm. Its length, should be about 3 meters. In the middle we put on 3 black beads. After two we connect them in a ring in such a way that each end passes through the last bead on the other side;

  • The head of the parrot is easy to beat. The main thing is that the first two rows should be flat. After each tier, you should make black lines;
  • Next, there will be a more extensive weaving. In this version, the black lines need to be weaved through two rows;
  • The next stage of weaving a bird from beads will beFastening of wings. For these parts, additional pieces of wire will be needed. For everyone should be from 30 to 35 centimeters. This is a major nuance, because then it might just not work out an element;
  • The end of the metal thread is inserted into the last three beads of the selected row, as the diagram shows;
  • Wings can be attached only to the range of crafts that are tightly tightened. In other words, in a place where the weaving can be made even;
  • Wings should be made with a mirror weave. Once the elements are ready, their ends are fastened to the broaches;

  • Thus, it is necessary to weave until the appearance of the yellow row.
  • As soon as you need to start anotherColor, we attach an additional piece of wire. It must be at least 30 centimeters. It is attached by the method of pulling the end through six central beads of the row. Thus, the weaving will be strong;
  • This weaving should be done three more rows. Once they have run out, insert an extra piece of wire. The length of which should be 30 cm;
  • From this metal thread, form the feet. Those parts that are more advanced forward will be fingers, and those that are behind will be heels;
  • Each finger of a bird from beads should be twisted. Superfluous remnants of wire tediously cut off. The second foot is also beaten in the same way;
  • Once the parrot is ready, it is necessary to fix all the ends of the wire.
  • Lion of beads

    Your attention is invited to an interesting master class on making a lion with beads. Such animals from beads are small in size, but they are bulky and beautiful.

    For production you need:

    • Wire or line;
    • Yellow shiny beads;
    • Orange shiny beads;
    • Several black beads;
    • One pink bead;
    • Cloth or paper as a filler.

    Manufacturing process:
    To weave a lion, use the most commonParallel weaving. It gives the product a special volume. The mane will be made using the needle method. Similar animals from beads require fairly large skills. Especially in voluminous weaving. Therefore, for beginner needlewomen, such crafts do not quite fit.

  • Begin to weave the product from the top of the head, then gradually go to the nozzle;
  • The lower two tiers are made in a row. All the following rows of beading are done by top-bottom method. From the lower row we begin to make a mane;

  • Put on the wire 1 orange, and five gold. Be very careful in colors. If you do, the product will not work out a bit;
  • Next, we take an orange bead, put onWire and pass it through the next four. Ideally, it should look like this: the first, the main one was left at the beginning. Tighten the wire in such a way that a needle is obtained. This process can be seen in the diagram image;
  • Then we take the same five beads, but we already pass to the other side through four put on;
  • Well tighten the wire. So you need to make the last needle of mane;
  • We proceed to the second free wire. We must stretch it through the orange element. The ends of the wires are tightened and lowered at the bottom of the craft. This will make mane;
  • The manufacture of the ears of the crafts is done by the methodReverse beadwork. Only in this case the wire extends after every four beads. The metal thread that is opposite is tightened. Immediately fit from above. Thus, we have a muzzle of a lion;
  • The paws must be weighed in bulk on the additional wire. The feet are made by the usual flat method;
  • The lion's tail is also trumpeted in bulk and on a separate thread. The end of the tail is made by needle method;
  • Fill each bulk blank with filler;
  • After finishing the weaving of each part, tighten the ends of the wire tightly, and cut off the remainders. Connect all parts together. The lion is ready!

  • Deer of beads

    For work you will need:

    • Black beads;
    • Brown shiny beads;
    • Yellow shiny beads;
    • Gray shiny beads;
    • Black beads;
    • scissors;
    • wire.

    Manufacturing process:

  • We begin the manufacture of crafts from the weaving of horns. On the middle of the metal thread we string the beads, as the diagram shows. We continue to work according to the figure;
  • Then proceed to create the head. To do this, cut a piece of wire about half a meter in length. We start the animal by making a spout. The work is done by volumetric parallel weaving;
  • After the head of the craft is ready, to herShould attach the horn. To do this, in a certain place, it is necessary to pass a metal string with six beads and attach the horns to it, passing the end into two elements of the workpiece;
  • After this, you must put four beads on the wire and stretch the second end of the metal thread through all the beads of the row in the opposite direction;
  • We begin to make ears. To do this, cut a piece of wire and weave according to the scheme;
  • To attach them to the head of the craft, it is necessary to stretch the end of the thread from the head through the bottom row of the ear beads;

  • At the next stage of beadwork, we begin to fabricate the trunk. To weave this workpiece, we must cut a piece of wire about two meters long and pass through the lower tier of beads on the head;
  • The trunk is bulging in volume. We begin with the bottom row. Fleece way up and down;
  • To make the legs of a deer, you need to attach additional wires in the corresponding places;
  • Beading of the extremities occurs by inward-outward;
  • For the tail it is also necessary to cut off a piece of metal thread and weave according to the scheme;
  • The tail is attached by pulling the wire through the entire row of beads in the appropriate place. The deer is ready!
  • This article presents animals from beadsSmall sizes. If you want to make the same small animals, but larger size, you can use beads larger, or even replace with beads. But you need to know that the appearance of crafts from this, too, will change. When you want to do longer only some part of the animal, for example, the tail of a bird, you can simply add another row of beads in the circuit calculations. Volumetric animals from beads - very interesting crafts. They can be not only a beautiful hobby, but also an excellent gift to a loved one.
