Perhaps one of the most popular speciesNeedlework is the creation of decorative objects. Such creativity will not only allow you to relax and do your favorite thing, but also help create a lot of jewelry for any interior. Hand-made articles are always the best gift, a bright and memorable decoration, a favorite toy or a pleasant memory. Such a gift or decoration of the interior can be a tree of beads. And such an interesting lesson, like beading, can grow into a hobby that brings in additional income. If you have never done this kind of work, do not worry. Having become acquainted with this article, you will see that in fact this lesson is not as difficult as it may seem. Materials and tools for work Beforehand, think about how the tree will look. Find a diagram, a photo, you can draw a sketch. Next, you need to pick beautiful combinations of shades of beads. Try to at least approximately calculate how much material you will need. Required materials for the manufacture of wood:
- thin wire;
- A solid rod that will serve as the basis of the trunk;
- base, stand. For these purposes it is best to choose a container or any vessel, you can stop on a plastic bottle;
- gypsum (alabaster), glue PVA;
- it is possible to use other decorative elements in the form of small flowers, fruits, coins, pajetok, soil, natural stones, etc .;
- in some situations, you may need a fishing line, a paint tape, a floss, and so on.
The simplest tree of beads The technique of weaving trees from beads is best to learn from the simplest examples, and here is one of them:
On the wire, you need to dial 5 beads and screw them into the loop. On the same wire, you need to make 9 such loops, the distance between them should be less than a centimeter.
Bend the workpiece in such a way that the fifththe loop became the tip, the other leaves are arranged in pairs against each other. All the intervals between the loops need to be twisted in a spiral. In total, you need to make 25 such blanks.
Now, create branches. Take one piece, step back from its bottom about 1 cm and screw to this place the bottom of the second part. In the same way, collect 5 parts in one branch and arrange all branches accordingly.
Each of the resulting branches should be braided with threadsthe mulina. Do this very tightly so that the threads do not disintegrate. The ends of the threads are fixed with a loop. Next, collect all the branches in the tree. Often, the wire that is used for weaving is not rigid enough and can not hold the whole structure on itself. In this case, you need to pick up a base - it can be a stick, a branch or a thick wire. When the trunk is formed, it should also be wrapped around the floss with floss. Take into account that on the place of the root of a fairly rigid wire you need to make a hook. It will allow to fix the construction on the stand.
How to make a trunk To create a trunk androots can be used sculptural material. Most often it is created from a mixture of PVA and gypsum in an equal proportion. The consistency of the solution should resemble a very thick sour cream. The mixture must be poured into the mold. While it will dry, proceed to the formation of rootlets, which will later pass into the trunk. If you are planning to make a large enough barrel, and the mixture is very small, you can take advantage of some tricks. Make a "snag" of paper or cotton wool, wrap it with a paint tape, and then cover with a sculpted solution. Texturing the trunk is best done with a brush with a very stiff bristle. Stain the barrel after the mixture has completely dried. The same applies to the varnish, it is by no means impossible to rush here. Stand for wood from beads To makestand for a tree, you can use a ready-made flower pot or a large stone, to which wire will be attached. Although you can try to make it yourself. The idea of creating a stand is this:
Prepare a wide plastic or silicone mold. In it, you need to put a gypsum mixture.
Find the second form, which will be narrower. Press it inside so that the mixture rises on the sides.
After 10 minutes, remove the external form. Next, use a knife to cut or press the decor of the base.
When the design is completely dry, remove the inner mold. Now you can establish the base of the tree and fill it with a solution. It remains to form the roots and trunk of the tree.
Making birch from beads Birch isa fairly symbolic tree, which denotes the transition of spring into summer. Take a look at this master class to create such a beautiful tree without much difficulty. To make a birch you need a green bead to create the leaves. Choose several shades so that the birch tree looks alive and bright. Also, the wire will be 3 mm, 1 mm and 0.3 mm thick. In addition to winding, you will need yarns of any color, PVA glue, alabaster, acrylic paints and brushes. Creating foliage for birch
Take wire 0.3 mm thick, put onher 7 beads and twirl in the loop. It will be central. Immediately mix all the shades of green that you plan to use in your work, and take them randomly.
From the first loop it is necessary to retreat about 1 cm and make a second similar loop.
Make 6 more such loops. In order for the central loop to remain at the top, twist the wire as you work and twist its tips together. So you should have a twig. Make them 15 pieces (with 9 loops). They will go to create the top. For the remaining branches, make 57 parts, but with 11 loops.
Formation of the birch crown
When all the branches are ready, they will need to beconnect with each other. Details with 9 loops need to be twisted together by 3, similar actions take place with details that have 11 loops. In summary, you will get 5 branches for the top, and 19 - for the foliage.
To each of the 19 branches with the help of thread, it is necessary to fasten the wire with a width of 1 mm.
On one of the tops make three twigs, on the other - two. So you can create two pillars. Fasten the wire 3 mm wide to the top.
After that, start to tighten to thickwire on one branch. The main trunk will take 3 small twigs for the top and 12 large parts. To create an additional barrel you will need 2 small and 7 ordinary details.
Now combine the two barrels in such a way that the main trunk is slightly higher. Thicken the trunk with a scotch tape. Fold the ends of the thick wire and the birch is almost ready.
Stand for birch
You can use the capacity of any circle to create a podstack.
Place the plastic bag in the mold - so the alabaster does not stick to the walls of the container. Place the birch inside and support it to make it more stable.
Alabaster is diluted with water and PVA glue. At 2 tbsp. l. alabaster will leave for 1 tbsp. l. water and PVA. Pour the mixture into the mold and leave for 10-12 hours to dry.
Painting a tree When a birch tree is almost ready, it needs to give a little color. For this, the tree needs to be painted a little.
Before painting the trunk, wind the branches with polyethylene or foil, so as not to smear them.
The paint should be started with a mixture of alabaster and gluePVA. The same thing will have to be done with the branches. However, they should prepare the mixture for less, while for the trunk the mixture should be more dense. Spread the product with a brush and let it dry for 12 hours.
Proceed to painting. First, cover the trunk with white paint in two layers, allowing each of them to dry thoroughly. As for the stand, it needs to be covered with a mixture of PVA and paint (brown or green).
After the white paint has dried, apply a black paint. Use a softer brush for the branches, and for the trunk - more rigid.
When the product is completely dry, remove the foil from the twigs and straighten them, giving a more natural look.
The birch from the beads is ready. It turned out very nicely. New Year's souvenir of beads In the period of winter holidays, there is always a desire to create something magical with your own hands that will bring a new mood to the atmosphere. Take this workshop as a note, and in the future you will not have any problems with the choice of festive decor and New Year's souvenirs. To begin, prepare all the materials andinstruments. In addition to materials and tools for beading, you will need a 0,5 l lid with a lid, a second lid (slightly smaller), beads imitating pearls, food film, a small lid (suitable for milk packaging), white plasticine, satin ribbons of different widths and yellow), glycerin, boiled water and sparkles. Stages of manufacture
First, take a wire whose widthabout 0.3 mm. You need about 70 cm. It needs to be strung on a bead, imitating pearls 6 mm, 4 mm, beads "rice", and beads of golden color. Go in reverse order through a bead "rice", a pearl bead 4 mm, 6 mm. Next, you need to add 3 beads of green color, make sure that the ends of the wire are the same length. Then, on one end of the wire, string 4 beads and walk in reverse order through the first 3. In this way, you will be able to make the first branch. Further on this tip you need to put on 4 more beads and go back through 3. Repeat the same action and with the second end of the wire. Now twist the tips together and put three beads on them. Next you need to make twigs of the second tier of the tree. To do this, use the diagram in picture # 3. In this case, the wire must be passed as indicated in diagram No. 4. Twist them together. After that, take a thicker wire, the length of which will be 15 cm. Fold it twice and twist, leaving one small loop. Through this loop you need to pass in all directions all the ends of the wire from the already finished construction, tie them, flatten the loop and twist the ends of the thin wire around the thicker one. An example can be seen in photo # 2. Again, take a thin wire and engage in the formation of branches of 3-6 tiers in the amount that is indicated in the third scheme. Fix the twigs on a thick wire, between tiers you need to retreat about half a centimeter. Cut off the remaining tips of the wire, leaving about 3 cm. After this, take a small cap, place a herringbone on it and distribute the tips of the wire in different directions. They need to be fixed with plasticine and glued beads on top, imitating pearls. Now the Christmas tree needs to be dressed up. To do this you will need a bead needle. Thread a fishing line into it, string a bead in the form of a pearl and a bead, go through the bead in the opposite direction. Next, look for more favors on the tree and decorate them in the same way. The ends of the line are tied in two nodules and cut off. Decorate the Christmas tree and spread all the branches.
Now, make a gift fortree. To do this, take a needle for beads, thread a fishing line into it and weave a square without plexuses according to the scheme depicted in picture # 7. After that you need to weave another square, but already with a plexus and connect them as shown in the diagram number 8. Weave another square with two plexuses, the other with three and the last with four. When you combine the last boxes, fill the toy with food film. Remnants of a fishing line weave into a cube and cut off all the sticking tips. Take a narrow ribbon of red color and tie a gift. Scratch the tips with a match so that the ribbon does not bloom. By analogy, make the second gift.
Now take two caps of different sizes andglue the moment smaller to larger. After that, take a red ribbon 5 cm wide and glue around the large lid to hide the design. The lower part of the ribbon should be glued to the outer part of the lid. Close the rest with red ribbons. On the "podium" of a small lid you need to glue a Christmas tree, gifts and beads. Wait for complete drying. Next, pour the spangles onto the bottom of the jar. After that, you need to make a mixture of glycerin and boiled water. Mix to start with 1: 1, put a few glitters in the liquid: if they fall too quickly, then there is not enough glycerin, and if too long - then add water. When the liquid is ready, fill it with a jar. Please note that it is not necessary to fill it up to the end, because the Christmas tree will replace the excess liquid. Apply glue on the inner wall of the lid and tighten the jar. Let the glue dry, then lower the souvenir upside down. For additional decoration, take a narrow ribbon of yellow color and tie the neck of the jar once more. For a strong fixation, you can glue it. Now the New Year's souvenir is ready.
A bead from a bead As it is possible not to make by own hands such beautiful and gentle bushes. A lot of white flowers on the background of large green leaves can keep the spring mood for a long time. To work you will need the beads of green andwhite, all kinds of white beads in the form of flowers and asterisks, wire for weaving different colors, its recommended width is 0.2-0.3 mm, wire of any color about 2-3 mm or metal rods that are needed to make a barrel, a dish for bases, gypsum or cement, brown paint (varnish), decorative stones of small size.
First, take the wire green orbrown and cut it into segments about 50-60 cm. From them you need to make 50 leaves, using beads of green color. To create such details, use the diagram below.
After that, take a white or silverwire and cut it into segments of 40-50 cm. String the white beads on the piece 5-7, place them in the center of the wire and twist the loop. Leave about 1 cm and put on them beads in the form of flowers, twist the tips together. So you need to make lush floral branches in white.
Now collect small bunches, consisting of twigs of green leaves and white flowers. The ends of the wire are tightly twisted together.
And here you come to the final stage - allbouquets need to be collected in one tree. In order to make a barrel, use thick wire or metal rods. Note that the roots need to be made large and stable. Now take the gypsum or cement, dilute them as indicated on the package. Add a small amount of the mixture to the foundation bowl, plant the tree and wait for the gypsum to dry a little, holding the sapling. When the tree becomes firm, pour the container with the mixture until the end. Leave it overnight to dry completely. In the morning, start decorating the trunk and large branches with gypsum. Paint them with brown paint, if necessary, can be varnished. At the end decorate the stand with pebbles. Creation of Albition Try to make from a bead such beautiful and fluffy tree, as albitsiya. The brushes of this plant burn with a bright flame and can revive the home interior, giving it freshness. Create a tree starting with bright brushes. Create them according to the scheme presented above - the top central drawing. Dial 1 bead of red color on the wire and place it in the center, string on the sides of it 3 red beads, then - 3 pink and at the end - 3 yellow ones. To make the bunch more lush, repeat this branch again. Make 60 beams of 7 beads. Next, proceed to create green foliage according to the scheme presented above. Weave begins with a tip with five green beads. Gradually, their number is increased. On two sides make two 7 beads, then 9 and 11. After that, reduce the number of beads: first by 9, then by 7 pieces. The branch is ready, make about 50-60 of them. Now it remains to collect the tree. The assembly begins at the end of the branches. Take a thick wire and attach to it a bunch of flowers, as well as leaves at a distance of 1.5 cm, 2 cm and 3 cm. The entire branch must be carefully wrapped with copper wire. Make 5-6 large branches and connect them to each other in a massive trunk. Wrap it all with wire. Form the podstavochku from the tips of a thick wire, put the tree in a pot and sprinkle it with decorative stones (you can pour gypsum for strength). Above, the base can be decorated with moss and Albizia is ready.
