The feeling of the holiday gives birth to the desire to create with your own hands something beautiful and magical. In this article we will offer a lot of ideas of handicrafts with our own hands on the eve of the New Year 2016. Original candlesticks with their own hands Shimmering lights of light on a winter night warm and create a magical atmosphere of a winter fairy tale. Small and large candles in the original candlesticks made by themselves will become a wonderful decoration of New Year's Eve, nice and pleasant gifts for loved ones and loved ones. To create such magic crafts you will need candles, imagination, inspiration, a bit of time and the materials that are available in every house: ropes, threads, glasses, jars, nuts, cinnamon and, of course, mandarin and even wood. In general, do not be afraid to show all the creativity - any little thing can come in handy. The simplest option would be to wrap thick candles with cinnamon sticks, tie a ribbon and a truly festive and fragrant artwork is ready. The following candlestick will need:
- Artificial snow;
It's very simple - to put in jarsartificial snow and candles. On the edges of cans and cones, apply a little glue, cover it with artificial snow and attach it with thread of sisal or any material you like. For the next candlestick in the form of a wreath you will need:
- Nuts (walnuts, forest, almonds);
- Circle base;
- Paint (silvery, golden blue metallic or whatever you like);
- Glue gun;
- Small Christmas balls (it is better to take old ones, which you do not already decorate with a Christmas tree).
Below is a detailed step-by-step master class. The main thing when creating such a candlestick is to leave a place for candles. If you have birch logs or otherstrees, cooked for a fireplace or barbecue, with their help you can make a wonderful candlestick. For him, actually, only birch bark is needed - the upper part of the bark, a glass beaker and a candle. You can also use small logs entirely. They just need to hollow out or cut the grooves for the candles. In a transparent container - a glass or a jar - you can add a little water and various decorative details - berries, Christmas tree branches or flowers. Put the candle in there and it's ready! Such candlesticks will look especially advantageous in the number of three or more pieces made in the same containers. Another great option for candlesticks will be lace. You can tie the delicate elements yourself or make a candlestick made of ready-made ones. It will take:
- PVA glue;
To create such an openwork candlestick is very easy. We inflate the ball and glue about half of it. Leave it to dry completely. It only remains to release the air from the ball and the candlestick is ready. Important! The size of the candlestick must be large enough so that the candle does not touch the walls. From the standpoint of fire safety, it is better to make a delicate candlestick by gluing a glass glass with a lace inside the lid. The house will immediately fill with a festive aroma, if you make a candlestick from fresh orange crust and cloves. In the New Year all without exception waiting for snow. At the same time, people who live in the warm southern regions of the country do not always see snowflakes whirling in the air. In this case, we propose to make a snow ball with our own hands. Such crafts will necessarily create a New Year and festive mood. Snow ball with a herringbone It will take:
- A jar of glass with a tightly twisting lid;
- Glycerin or mineral oil (you can use a transparent cosmetic);
- Glue silicone (this is used in aquariums);
- Herringbone of sisal;
- Sequins or foam plastic crumb (to create snow).
To begin with, we will make a herringbone with our own hands. Sisal is a fiber of vegetable origin, rather coarse. We need:
- Rope of sisal;
- Pliers (and still desirable drill and vice);
A thick sisal rope must be cut intopieces. Now we disassemble the segments into fibers before the fluffy state. When the "fuzziness" is enough, put our workpiece on a piece of wire slightly below the middle and bend the wire in half (see photo). Press firmly. We attach the shape of the triangle with the scissorsso that the wire loop is the crown of the tree. Now we have to use the tools. The knife of the Christmas tree, consisting of two wire tails, is clamped in a vice. The top cling to the drill and turn it on. The tool rotates and twirls the herringbone, making it voluminous. The fibers are tightly fixed inside the twisted wire. If there are no tools at hand, but there are those who want to help, then make this tree together. Simply clamp both ends of the Christmas tree with two pliers and rotate them in different directions. Scissors can only straighten the crown of our Christmas tree. Painting crafts can be food paints, shoe with the addition of alcohol or dyes for Easter eggs. It remains only to glue the Christmas tree to a smallstand and wait for the glue to dry completely. Now take the lid from the jar and glue to the inside of the Christmas tree. You can attach another toy or any other decorative element. In a jar we pour sequins or a piece of foam and pour glycerin or oil. We take a cap with a herringbone and apply siliconesealant at the edge of the lid. We tighten tightly on the jar and wait until the glue dries. We turn, shake and enjoy the spinning of snowflakes around the Christmas tree. Another wonderful craftsmanship and a wonderful gift can be handmade soap. New Year Soap This article is not only beautiful in appearance. In handmade soaps, various essential oils and other skin-friendly ingredients are added. In addition, soap making can be done with the kids. Babes can imagine themselves to be real wizards who brew a magical potion for the beauty and health of the skin, or luminaries of chemistry that invent cosmetic innovation. It will take:
- Soap base 100 g (sold in shops for needlework and soap making, it is transparent and matte white);
- Oil base 1 teaspoon (skilled workers use natural useful oils: sea buckthorn, olives, almonds);
- Natural food colors;
- Essential oils for flavor about 5 to 7 drops (once we have New Year's soap, then we make it with pine flavor);
- Molds in the form of New Year's details (Christmas trees, snowflakes, asterisks, etc.);
- Additives at will (these can be dried herbs, coffee grounds or even sparkles).
It is necessary to cut the soap base into small cubes and melt in a water bath. You can use a microwave. Important! The melting point of the substrate is 70 ° C, so do not overheat. Now add the oil base, essential oil, dye, herbs and mix. We pour out the molds and wait until the soap freezes. Mask for a party in the Venetian style New Year is the time for parties of all directions andsubjects. One of them can be a Venetian carnival or a masquerade ball. At such an event, you can not do without a mask. In order for it to fit precisely under your outfit and in harmony with the image, you can make a mask with your own hands. It will take:
- Plastic form in the form of a face;
- Mass for modeling;
- Rolling pin;
- Scalpel or clerical knife;
- Pattern (will be proposed below);
- Acrylic paints;
- Details for decoration (sequins, rhinestones, feathers, beads, etc.).
We cut out a template for the future mask from a densepaper. Thinly roll out the mass to mold a layer of approximately 3 mm. Apply the template to the formation and cut out the workpiece with a scalpel. Now we put the workpiece on a plastic base, make two holes on the sides for the strings and wait for the complete drying. This will take about a day. Do not dry the product near heating systems - this can lead to deformation. After the workpiece has completely dried itcan be colored using acrylic paints. To create a relief ornament, you can use thin strands of mass for molding. After drying the paints to paste decorative details: rhinestones, sequins, feathers, sequins. It remains to put the tie in the holes and the mask is ready. Snowmen New Year would not be complete without such a wonderful craft, like a snowman. If there is no snow outside the window, then it can be made from improvised means. Snowman made of cotton wool Materials and tools:
- PVA glue;
- Food coloring;
- Small black beads (for the eyes and buttons);
- Small twigs for hands;
- Sequins (optional).
You need two pieces of cotton - more for the trunkand smaller for the head. Now you need to get wet and get your hands on and roll the cotton balls into balls. For the time being, we put off our workpieces, so that they completely dry. We make water with glue PVA in a proportion 1: 2. If desired, you can add a sparkle to the mixture. Dry the koloboks with a mixture of glitter and leave until completely dry. While our blanks dry, we will do a nose-carrot snowman. We take a toothpick and tightly wound on the tip of cotton wool. Now we need to spread it with glue. We paint it with orange dye and carefully remove it from the toothpick. Toothpick grease with glue and with it we connect two of our snowballs. It remains only to stick a nose, eyes and buttons. Small twigs will be handles. With the help of a pink dye, you can paint the cheeks of a snowman. If desired, make a scarf from a strip of fabric, and glue a hat from colored paper. Snowman from the caps It will take:
- Caps from bottles (3 pieces for each snowman);
- Acrylic paints;
- Thin satin ribbon;
- Glue gun;
- Small buttons;
- Decor at will (sparkles, etc.).
The inner side of the lid should be painted inwhite. It is better to make several layers to ensure a smooth white color. Now you need to take a ribbon about 20 - 25 cm in length and glue along it three caps from the outside. We have them close to each other, you can even apply a little glue between the sides of the caps. Make a loop from the tape on one side. Paint the eyes, mouth, nose and buttons. We tie snowmen with scarves from pieces of ribbons or thick yarn. We decorate scarves with the help of usual small buttons. They can be glued or sewed. That's such a cute snowman turned out for us. They do not melt, even if the fireplace burns on New Year's Eve. At the same time, in the next master class we will offer you to make a decorative New Year's fire, which will not burn anyone. Decorative Fire This wonderful element of decor in the New Year's style will be just a godsend for those who do not have the opportunity to light a real flame in the house. Materials and tools:
- Garland (choose one that burns with a warm yellow light);
- Aluminum foil (suitable for baking, it is sold in rolls);
- Thick gauze, bandage or lace of unbleached flax (you can try to take the color of champagne or melted milk);
- PVA glue;
- Stationery knife;
- The stones are of medium size (rough and untreated, sea, watered not suitable);
- Branches about 3 - 5 cm thick (do not choose too smooth, let them be curved and of different lengths).
First of all, tightly wrap the branches with foil. In several layers. The foil falls unevenly, do not let it bother you. Now take our cloth. Need stripes are not too wide, about 4 - 5 cm. We carefully work with glue and wrap our blanks. Do this in a spiral so that the next turn slightly went to the previous one. We are waiting for the glue to dry completely. With a sharp knife, cut the workpiece and take out the piece of wood in the foil. In our hands, we left a cloth for our future fire. You can glue the place of the cut or leave it as it is - it's to your taste. Part of the garland is rolled into one lump, leavingcord with outlet free. in the chosen place we lay out the stones in a circle, place a garland in the center and add our logs of cloth with a shalash, as in the photo. It remains to turn on the flashlights and enjoy the spectacle.
