The holiday is getting closer. We know how to make his wait even more fun. A Christmas tree made of sisal, made by hand, is exactly what is needed to pass the evening, and at the same time to get a delicate gift to someone or an amazing decoration of the office, home, school class. This is a simple and fun job. We promise that in our master class, a pretty Christmas tree from sisal will work out for everyone!
To make a Christmas tree from sisal, you will need:
mint-colored sisal; pale pink, 9pieces (the link tells how to make them yourself); white satin ribbon in width of 0.6 mm; pale pink organza ribbon, 0.6 mm wide; white beads; mint beads; pale pink beads; berries "in sugar" white; berries "in sugar" pale pink; white napkin white 2-or 3-layer; cardboard A4; scissors; all-purpose adhesive; disposable cup (instead of glass, you can use a ceramic pot); building plaster; decorative star of white color.
Christmas tree from sisal do-it-yourself: master class
Building gypsum is diluted in containers of approximately 1: 1 with water. Mix thoroughly, add water if necessary, to the consistency of thick cream. Immediately pour the mass into the glass. Construction gypsum dries instantly, so it is important not to miss the moment, and then the mass will remain in the tank. We put a glass of plaster on the battery for the complete evaporation of moisture. In the meantime, we will be engaged in the preparation of sisal balls. We tear off a small piece of sisal to fit on the palm. We twist it between the palms, forming a ball of sisal. The longer you twist the sisal fiber, the tighter the finished ball will turn out, from which we will shape the Christmas tree from sisal. You quickly get involved: the hands themselves will “understand” what density and what size it is convenient to form sisal fiber balls. For a tree with a height of 30-32 cm you will need about 50 balls with a diameter of about 2.5 cm. We tie bows from ribbons (it is convenient to tie small ones, look at the link how to do it). We unfold a napkin, put a glass in the center. Instead of a napkin, you can use corrugated paper, hard tulle, cloth, etc. - everything your fantasy prompts. Glue the napkin to the glass (neatness herenot needed: the more folds you get, the more spectacular the sisal Christmas tree pot will look like). If you decide to use a ceramic pot instead of a glass, you will not need to mask it. From a sheet of cardboard we twist a cone. The diameter of the lower part of the cone should be slightly larger than the diameter of the upper part of the pot. Cone tightly napkins wrinkled or crumpleda newspaper. At the same stage, cut out a cardboard circle with petals for gluing, equal to the base of the cone, and glue the bottom of the cone with it. This will give the structure greater strength. Glue the filled cone to the pot. On top of the napkin on the pot, slightly above the middle,glue the ribbon around the pot and thereby denote the front side of the tree of sisal with a bow. It is convenient to glue the tape itself, and disguise the place of the junction of the sections with a ready-made bow, which we did in one of the previous steps. We start the formation of the crown of the Christmas tree. Glue the sisal balls in a circle, starting from the base of the cone. Go to the second row: here you can add flowers between sisal balls; and the elements themselves are glued in a checkerboard pattern, preventing gaps between the balls. We continue to stick balls of sisal, alternating them with roses. Rosettes can be used both individually and in groups. Glue the flowers and balls to the top of the cone - the topiary basics. We decorate the top of the tree with sisal with a star or any other decoration that you think suits the style. On the Christmas tree in any order glue bows. Between the bows glue decorative berries. It remains to add beads to the composition, and the Christmas tree will be fully dressed up. Christmas tree made of sisal, made by hand on our master class, is absolutely ready. Very gentle, isn't it? Look at another stylized New Year's beauty - a master class, how to do it. Alena Glazkova specifically for the site Master classes in needlework Previous article: Next article:
