Decoration of Easter eggs
Decorative krashenki are the mostcommon crafts, made in anticipation of the holiday. Ordinary eggs do not have the ability to be stored for a long time, but I would like so much that the original jewelry as long as possible amuse us with its appearance. And here come to the aid of Easter eggs, made from all sorts of improvised materials. They can be painted, decorated with various decorative elements in the form of beads, etc. Decorative Easter egg decorated with paper This manual offers your decor of an artificial Easter egg with the help of paper "scales". It is even possible to make such an original testicleto kid. This will take very little time, and materials will always be at hand. The result will impress you, it's not for nothing that they say that all ingenious is simple. Prepare a foam base in the form of an egg, a multi-colored paper (it is better if you find decoupage paper), glue, pins (important: they do not have to be English), and a 1,5 cm punch hole. If not available such a hole, you can make such circles by cutting them manually. So, first, make a large number of circles from paper and start decorating them with a foam base. Take the first circle and pin it with four pins to the top of the egg. The next circle should be lapped first. Do not cover the first circle too much, the second part should just cover one of the pins that fixes the first circle. Fasten the second circle with one pin at the very edge of the circle. Now let's start working on the third circle. It needs to be fastened so that it slightly covers the first two. Pin the pin in the intersection of the second and third circle. You should get it as shown in the diagram, which you can see below. Continue to fasten circles around the maindetail, located in the center. All the circles should slightly overlap the previous and center parts. It turns out that each of the circles is fixed with two pins at the intersections of the details on the right and on the left. After you have finished the first row, go down a little lower, and similarly start making the next rows. Each of them will slightly cover the previous one, only covering the pins that hold the previous rows. An example of this work you can see below in the photo. The number of circles with each row to the middle will increase, and then it will decrease. As for the last series, it is not necessarysecure with pins. Just glue the circles on top of the penultimate row to close all the pins. Now the original Easter egg is ready. Unusual painting of Easter eggs For this original coloring method, in addition to eggs, you will need food colors of different colors, vinegar and polyethylene bags (one for each color). The first thing you need to cook all the eggs until ready. After they have cooled, tap them on a hard surface to form small cracks all over the surface. Next, take the dyes and prepare the packages inaccording to the number of available colors. Put in the packages the right amount of eggs. For each of them, one tablespoon of dye is enough. Spread the paint evenly over the entire surface of the Easter eggs. You should get it as it is on the image. Leave them in this position for half an hour. After the time has elapsed, rinse the remainder of the dye under running water and sprinkle eggs with vinegar to harden the color. Clean them from the shell. This is not a difficult way you can get the original eggs for the Easter table.
Easter baskets There are many options for making Easter baskets, and some of them we will try to make ourselves. The first option involves the presence of a beautiful fabric and rope. Fabric can choose a one-color, and you can choose an intricate pattern, the appearance of the basket will only get better. To begin with, cut your fabric into longflaps, stitch together into long strips and process the edges so that they do not dissolve. Now take a thick enough rope, wrap a strip of fabric around it, periodically fixing with stitches. Now from the processed rope it is necessary to construct such design which is illustrated on the image. Wrap the rope from the fabric and fix itThreads, so you have a fairly solid foundation. To give the handmade the shape of the basket, start lifting the rope loops slightly, continuing to fix it in the same way with the threads in the tone of the fabric. When the basket is ready, make a handle from the same rope and sew it. Now your Easter basket is completely ready. The second option is a fairly common technique, which is most often used to create decorative balls of filaments. Using it, you will get a very beautiful basket, in which you can put small Easter souvenirs for little children. Here everything is simple. You will need a balloon, a thread for knitting, glue, any fat cream and decorative elements for decoration. Inflate the balloon to an ovoid shape and lubricate it well with a cream so that in the future it separates better from the threads. Lower the threads into the glue and after they are well soaked, start wrapping the ball around them. Consider the layer of threads should be made thick enough, the ball should not be visible at all. When the work is done, leave it for a day until it dries completely. When the design is completely dry, pierce the ball with a needle and trim the tail, let the ball remain inside. Then use a pair of scissors to cut out the holecenter in this way, as shown in the photo, remove the ball. Use a ribbon for decor: you can paste it on the cut, or on the circumference of the basket. Act on your own. Fill the prepared basket with sweets, dyed eggs, rabbits, etc. Easter wreath at the doorEaster wreaths use a variety of handy materials. Excellent branches of plants, wire, colored paper and much more. Traditionally, for such crafts choose the following colors:
