Weaving colors from beads

Today we will conduct lessons with step by stepA description of how to make flowers from beads with your own hands. Our training will be very useful not only for beginners, but also for those who already have some experience. It is difficult to list all the varieties of flowers on our planet, so I want to describe each of them and tell how to weave such a flower. But, alas, this is impossible. And today we try to dwell on some colors, more exotic and rare. Any flowers from beads looks very original and attractive, so there is not much difference which one to describe.
Our first master class will be devoted to weavingSuch an exotic flower as a terry violet. If you look at this flower, or on the photo or video, on which it is imprinted, then pay attention to its splendor and refinement. So, we will begin our first lesson:

Master class on weaving of double violets from beads

For work it is necessary to prepare the following materials and tools:

  • The beads are pink, green and white;
  • The beads are white;
  • Wire 0,3 mm (for colors);
  • Wire 0,4 mm (for leaves);
  • Wire 1 mm (for the trunk);
  • Threads of beige moulin;
  • Scissors;
  • Tweezers for cutting wire.
  • Getting started with the fact that we take the delay andWe string on it pink beads. Departing from the edge of the wire 10 cm, add this piece in half, forming a loop. We move in this loop 20 beads and we twist three turns. Distribute our beads in equal quantities on both sides of the loop, and twist it on the other side. We got two rows of ten beads each. We continue to weave our flower from beads, adding exactly one turn, and fixing this series with twisting. Then, in the same way, add two more rows, and finish our petal. There should be 7 rows in this petal. Such petals need to make 25 pieces, five for each flower.
    And now we continue work on these petals. We collect white beads on the wire and screw its end to the base of the pink petal. We draw one string of beads, fixing the twig with twists on both sides of the petal. Our pink petal with white edging is completely ready. We do the same job for all pink petals.

    A piece of wire that remained on one side of the petal, wrapped on the wrong side and pressed tightly against the petal, masking it.
    We continue to weave a flower from beads, formingThe leaves of our terry violets. We use the same principle as when making petals. We dial on the wire green beads, move twenty beads, forming a loop, and make a leaf of 13 rows. The difference is only in the number of rows. Such leaves need 9 pieces.

    The next step is thatWire 10 cm long stringed three white beads, which we pre-prepared, and make a simple twist. So, all the elements for our flower are ready. And now it is required to connect all the details together to make a real flower of beads. We need to take our wire of large diameter, which we have prepared for the trunk, and attach these three beads to its base. Tighten so that the bottom of the trunk is closed. Then we apply five pink petals, connecting them with beige threads of a mulina. Now our flower is absolutely ready. We make four more such flowers, fastening them to the common stem.
    When all the flowers and leaves are ready, we need to takePot, where we will plant our magnificent flower from beads. We make a solution of gypsum with water, pour it into our pot, and put a stalk with flowers there. The leaves of the violet simply stick around our stalk. You can supplement our information by viewing photos and video materials.

    Master class on the creation of orchids from beads

    The next master class will be devoted to the story ofHow to weave such exotic flowers as an orchid. We determined in advance that our lessons will tell you about exotic flowers. For our latitudes, orchids are just such unusual colors. Such a flower of beads is as unordinary as the living orchid in nature. Now determine the necessary stock of materials. We will need:

  • The beads are pink;
  • Crimson;
  • Green;
  • White;
  • Blue;
  • Wire 0,3 mm;
  • Threads of beige moulin;
  • Wire thick diameter for the trunk.
  • We continue our lessons with a step-by-step descriptionTechniques for performing orchids. On a wire thickness of 0.3 mm, we collect beads in large quantities. You can not count it, and dial along the length of the wire about fifty centimeters. Then back off from the free edge of 15 cm and bend it, forming a loop. In this loop, move 20 beads from our thread of beads. We will distribute it evenly on both sides of the loop and make a twist on the side of the thread of the beads, and also from the side of the loop, where the bottom of our leaf will be located. That is, from the upper and lower sides we have free pieces of wire, where we will make the fastening of our attached circles of beads.

    Now start to dial in circular motionsbeads. We make a semicircle and fix it for one turn, then the second semicircle and again fastening for one turn. We bring the size of the leaf to 7 rows (double row of loops count for one). We fix our wire from the underside of the sheet, and we put the upper wire inside and hide it. A leaf for an orchid is ready. And all you need to do 10 of these leaves. We continue to make a flower of beads with our own hands with a step-by-step explanation of all actions and operations.
    And now we need to weave the same principleFour petals of pink beads. The only difference is that these petals must make 10 rows, that is, they will be slightly larger. Then we must weave crimson petals in the amount of 4 pieces. These petals will have 6 rows of beads. After making all the petals, we perform four stamens. Two of them will be white, two blue. Stamens do in the form of a loop of blue and white beads, each of which consists of 10 beads.
    After completion of work on individual partsFlower, we proceed to the procedure of connecting them together. We take four pink and four crimson petals. The upper row is made of crimson petals. Pink petals will be placed below, and stamens will be inserted into the center. We combine the flower with a string of beige mulina. For one branch of an orchid, you can make three, five or seven flowers, according to your desire. Everyone knows that orchids grow on several pieces on one branch. Therefore, the flower of beads, which we perform in the image and likeness of living orchids, will also be made from a trunk on which flowers and leaves are located.

    Our master class offers you not only lessonsBeadwork for beginners, but also the technique of assembling various parts into one, as well as the design of the work. This is a very important point. Therefore, we will give it due attention.

    We take a wire of large diameter, whichPrepared for the trunk of our orchid, and slightly bend it at the base. Now it is necessary to strengthen this first flower of the orchid, tightly screwing it with threads. Next, we fasten the leaf, and a little lower the second flower. To fasten flowers it is necessary very strongly. Alternating flowers and leaves in a staggered order, we move gradually down the stalk. Threads of a beige moulin give our orchid the look of a real live flower.
    To make our flower of beads look natural, some of the green leaves are screwed down.

    Can be made in a different color scheme, it all depends on your taste and desire. We plant our orchid in a pot, and fix it with a mixture of gypsum and water.

    Our last master class will be dedicated to such a rare and delicate flower as a lily of the valley.

    Lily of the valley bead by own hands

    This is a very beautiful decoration for the house. The most important thing is that
    Very much like a lily of the valley in nature. It is very important that weaving such flowers is not very difficult. This is a simple and fast process, but the result will please you. For work, we prepare:

  • Beads of green color;
  • White;
  • Beads pearly white;
  • Large green beads;
  • Green wire 0,4 mm;
  • Tweezers for wire cutting;
  • The wire is green and white.
  • We take a wire 10 cm long and thread itWhite beads in the number of 4 pieces. Wire bend, forming a small ring of 4 white beads. Then string a large white bead and place it on the white beads. Then on the same wire we dress 4 large green beads. We got one flower of a lily of the valley on a leg. Such flowers must be made 9 pieces to fill the twig of the lily of the valley entirely. After that, all the flowers of the lily-of-the-valley should be gathered in one branch of the inflorescence. To do this, we take a wire with a length of 1 mm and a length of 20 cm. For the flower that is attached to the top, we add two more green beads.

    In these added beads we push the wireBasis, and continue to fasten the rest of the flowers by the method of twisting. The fastening of the flowers to the stalk is strengthened with the help of threads. Moving downwards, one after another we fasten all 9 colors. The inflorescence of the lily of the valley is ready, and now we will proceed to create the leaflet. Since the leaf at the lily of the valley is very large, we need a green wire and strung on it beads 1 meter long. From a piece of wire 80 cm long, fold the loop, and move the beads into it with a quantity of 20 cm. We make twisting in the lower and upper parts of the eyelet.
    After this, by moving the beads to the firstWe make circular movements and add one arc of beads after another, fixing them by the method of twisting the upper and lower parts. With this technique, you need to dial ten rows of beads, and fix the ends of the wires. Now lightly bend our sheet, trying to give it a natural appearance. After this, we will attach our inflorescence to the leaf, and we will fasten them together with threads of a mulina. In order to put lilies of the valley in a vase, it is desirable to make three such flowers with leaves, then the impression will be complete.
    We finish our lesson on weaving flowers fromBeads, and we advise you to consolidate knowledge through various photo and video materials. Use the knowledge that you got to decorate the house, or create great gifts for your relatives and friends.
