Plait butterfly from beads according to scheme

Before starting a master class, we must prepare all the necessary materials for the work:

  • wire;
  • Beads at number 11 (the choice of colors depends on your personal preferences).

Let's start with weaving wings forOur summer beautiful butterfly in the technique of parallel weaving. This is how the scheme looks like, according to which we will first have to weave one lower three-color wings, and then the other:

The scheme of weaving the lower wings of the butterfly Let's get to work:
Take a piece of wire and thread 1 bead on it. Then, at one end of the working "thread" we will put on 2 more beads and draw a second end through them.

After you carefully tighten the loop, you will get 2 rows of beads.
Using such a technique of weaving, you will need to finish the first wing to the end and then start doing the second one.

The number of beads and their color you must choose in accordance with the scheme.
The upper wings of our butterfly from beads, we will also do, as shown in the diagram:

The scheme of weaving the upper butterfly wingsOn the firstA look for novice craftsmen such a weaving can seem complicated. But this is not so. Making wings is not really difficult at all, and you'll see for yourself as soon as you get to work.

Now you will have to weave the trunk. He has a simple scheme of weaving, so it will not cause any questions even for novice masters:

Then you will need to hold each tip of the wire through the first strung bead and, fixing it on your head, twist the flagellum, which then turns into a mustache:

Pay attention to what to do body forButterflies are best made of beads with large holes, because through some of them you will have to skip working "thread" several times during the assembly of all the parts.
Now let's put together all the disparate parts. For this we need this scheme:

The layout of butterfly parts will be more convenient if you first attach the upper wings, and then the lower ones. But do not hurry to cut the wire, as it is still useful.

Thanks to the remaining free ends of the wire, you can make an additional "fastening". For this you need to weave together 3 rows of upper and lower wings.

As a result, we got a delightful andAn incredibly bright beaded butterfly that will become a magnificent decoration for your interior. In addition, it can be turned into a wonderful brooch or diversify with its help a floral composition.
You can slightly change the technique of weaving, andAlso choose a different color scheme and make a few such beauties. As an example, we will give you a scheme of weaving the upper and lower wings for a blue moth:

Learning how to weave a butterfly step by step

Any master class, in the first place, is calculatedOn how to teach beginners and help them learn how to weave different figures from beads. So now we will have a short lesson, during which you will learn how to weave a blue butterfly.
Before starting the lesson, let's prepare everything that we need for work:

  • wire;
  • Pink transparent beads;
  • Beads of yellow (golden), pink and blue.

Let's begin to weave our exotic beauty from the torso:
To begin with, you will need to string 2 beads in the middle of a small piece of wire (about 60 cm).
Then it is necessary to push one of the ends of the working "thread" into the second bead, so that the loop turns out.
After that you will need to tighten it (you need to do it carefully) and you will see the first 2 rows of the trunk:

Now one of the ends of the wire you need to dial 2 more beads, and the second - to stretch through them. Tightening the eyelet, you will get 3 ryadochek:

Next, you will need to type beads for weaving in the following sequence:

Now that the body is ready you can start making the antennae:

  • Dial on the wire 25 golden beads;
  • Having missed one, draw the wire through the rest;
  • Then push the tip of the working "thread" through the last bead on the body;
  • Tighten the wire;
  • We will follow the same pattern as the first;
  • Then we will have to pass the ends of the wire several times through the rows of beads on the trunk;
  • After that, we will need to twist the wire;
  • Cut off excess length and gently fold.

  • Now we will make big wings.
    First you need to cut 40 blue beads into a piece of wire about 50 cm long, placing them so that they are directly in the center.
    Then you need to count 18 beads and pass through them the second tip of the wire. After that you will need to tighten them carefully, so that the tips of the wire are almost identical.
    Then on the right tip of the working thread youYou will have to dial 4 beads, and on the left - 19. Having done this, you will need to conduct a working "thread" with less beads through beads located at the other end.

    Here's what you will get after you tighten the loop:

    Then you dial 18 beads on one tip of the working "thread", and on the other 6.
    After this, you will need to conduct a working "thread" with 6 beads through 17 beads located at the other end.

    Then the pattern of your weaving slightly changes, and you add to the blue beads - pink:

    We continue our work:

    Pay attention to the fact that you need to skip the end of the working "thread" not through 13 beads, but after 12.
    Next we will have to string 14 pink beads to the right tip of the wire and then pass it through 5 blue beads on the base of the wing:

    Then on the same wire we will put on 5 pink beads and let the second end of the working "thread" through them.
    Having done this, we will need to conduct the wire through a neighboring pink bead.
    After that, on the same working "thread" we string 3 more beads. And then we pass the wire through the 6th and 7th row on the trunk of the butterfly.
    We fix the working "thread" and cut off the excess ends.

    By the same scheme, we weave the second wing and attach it to the body.
    Now we begin to weave the two lower wings:

  • We dial on the wire (30cm) 9 pink beads;
  • Having retreated from the edge of the working "thread" about 9 cm, we form a loop of them;
  • On the longer tip of the wire string 20 beads of blue color and screw them on top of the first eyelet;
  • Also make another loop of 31 pink beads;
  • Push the tips of the wire through the 4 rows on the butterfly's body and attach the wing to it.

  • After you screw the second bottom wing, you will get such a wonderful butterfly from beads:
