The New Year is a time of miracles and reincarnations. With particular trepidation, little children await the arrival of magic. Matinees for them - the opportunity to feel like the protagonists of the tale. Naturally, girls dream of being princesses or Snow Maidens. In addition to a chic dress, bright accessories and stylish shoes, they still need a crown, which will immediately turn any girl into a New Year's beauty. From our master class you will learn how to make a spectacular Christmas crown of kanzashi ribbons on the rim. This accessory also solves the issue with the hair: hair can be collected in a bun or wrapped in a ring, and you can leave it loose (it would be nice to pre-curl them). From above we put on the remarkable elegant crown made on our master class - and the girl in an instant turns into the beautiful Snow Maiden or "princess" character. In today's master class, the kanzashi crown for the New Year is made in a green and gold tones. The green color, the shape of the petals, the cone-shaped arrangement of the details - all this resembles a Christmas tree, and the golden brocade and rhinestones fit perfectly into the general holiday ensemble. But, of course, nothing prevents to make the New Year's crown for the Snow Maiden in white-blue-silver or any other color.

New Year's Crown of Kanzashi: MK with step by step photos
New Year's Crown presented at the finalThe photo consists solely of sharp kanzashi petals. All petals are made of three layers: a green ribbon of two shades and golden brocade. To begin with, we will cut a wide ribbon (5 cm wide) of light, dark green and golden colors into 5 cm long segments. This will result in 58 squares of each color. To prevent the ribbons from falling off, we quickly and accurately process sections using a lighter flame. Consider the process of making a petal. Take three squares of the same size but different colors. All three squares are bent diagonally. The closed ends are once again flushed with a cigarette lighter so that the corner is glued together. To do this, hold both edges of the tape tightly, then the melted material of the tape solders them. We fold the resulting figure again, combining sharp corners. As in the previous step, we solder the tails with a lighter. If it doesn't come out to glue the tape with a lighter,fold the tape in the manner described and fix the tip with a drop of hot silicone glue. It is important that the glue is invisible. All three figures fold the sandwich one on another: at the bottom - dark green, on top - light, golden - at the very top. To triangles are not shifted, it makes sense to fix them with a pin. Note that the triangles are stacked on each other with a slight offset so that they are all clearly visible. This is understandable from the photo. Sharp corners of the sandwich combine so thatthe golden petal was inside. The tip can be fixed again with a cigarette lighter or a needle thread. But do not forget that the cut is uneven, multi-layered. The edge and the base of the petal will have to be cut with sharp scissors and scorch the cut well. Remember that work must be neat from the face and from the inside, as the back of the New Year's crown of kanzashi will also be visible. Repeating the steps described, we make in this way 58 petals. The petals are distributed as follows:
- 19 pieces will be used for the lower tier;
- 18 pieces - on the middle tier;
- 21 pieces - on triple bushes (only 7 bushes).
Before modeling the crown,braid itself plastic bezel. To do this, take two thin green ribbons of different shades. On each we will make a loop: its height must be such that the second tape passes into it. To start weaving, stretch the dark ribbon in a loop of light. Then we fold the light one in half and stretch the resulting loop into the loop of the dark ribbon. We do the same with dark tape: we lay it up with a loop, and stretch the loop itself into the loop of the light ribbon. After this, we lightly tape the light ribbon: the weaving should be quite dense. We continue to work, weaving a dense braid for the rim under the crown for the New Year. The length of the wide double spit is equal to the length of the rim. Cut the ribbon so that small tips remain. We hide them under the pigtail. Apply silicone glue along the entire length to the hoop. At the end of weaving, we bend the tips and glue this part of the braid to the rim. Then we press the finished braid from the tape along the entire length of the rim. On the bezel we determine the center. To the crown did not disappoint, accuracy is important in the details. We begin to glue the first row from the center to the sides. The first row, as we wrote above, consists of 19 petals, and. Total, we glue the first one exactly in the center, and on either side of it we place another 9 petals. Begin to glue sharp petals. They need to have glued corners up. The back side of the bezel will also look beautiful. In a staggered manner, in the gaps between the needles of the first layer, glue the details of the second tier. At the same time, the glued side of the petal is facing down! From the reverse side, it can be seen that the upper parts must clearly enter the grooves between the lower ones. Of the remaining petals in the amount of 21 pieces need to collect the twigs. Each branch will consist of three parts. Paste 7 received branches symmetrically, forming a beautiful crown, similar to the Christmas tree. Prepare red beads of three sizes and golden stars for decoration. 7 stars are pasted on the main tops andwe also add the smallest semi-beads. With the largest semi-beads, we will mask the attachment points of the branches, and all the other places where the petals dock are medium sized. The remaining 7 stars are used to mask the attachment points of the branches on the reverse side. Crown kanzashi for the Christmas party is ready.
