Gentle little flowers can not be anyoneLeave indifferent. Especially in early spring, when they just appear on the first thawed patches. Perhaps for this reason they are called forget-me-nots. It's a pity that they fade very quickly. But you can make forget-me-nots from beads and admire them every day. Moreover, even a novice needlewoman can do it. However, it is necessary to weave many small flowers of the same type. But this is not a problem, is it?
Materials for work
To make your own hands a bouquet of forget-me-nots, you need to take:
- Czech blue, green and yellow seed beads No. 10 or 11;
- Thin wire (thickness 0.2-0.3 mm);
- Thick wire 1 mm thick (to form a stem);
- Green floral tape (can be replaced with nylon thread);
- Special pliers;
- Transparent glue "Moment";
- acrylic lacquer.
Also, the work will require cutting pliers, a piece of flannel or felt and a box for storing beads.
Variants of weaving flowers forget-me-nots
Like the living, forget-me-nots of beads consist ofA lot of small flowers. On the one hand, they are very easy to make, even without a weaving scheme. On the other hand, they will need a lot. To get a decent bouquet, you need from 30 to 50 of the same type. Although this is a good opportunity to fill the hand of a novice needlewoman. To make beadworking does not seem monotonous, you can make them in different techniques. The most common are the following three options.
The first option Cut a piece from the total skeinLength of 20 cm. Collect 6 beads and place them so that on one side there is a piece of 5 cm in size. Then, the long end of the wire passes through the last bead so that the loop turns out. Using the same technique, make 4 more petals. As a result, you should get a blank for the future flower. It remains only to connect the first and last of its elements. The remaining long end is passed through the last bead of the 1st petal to the center.
Now you need to make a serenade for a forget-me-not flower. Dial one bead of yellow color and thread the wire through the last bead in the fourth petal. Connect the two ends together. To decorate wrap 2 cm of twist floristic tape (or nylon thread).
The second option
This technique of weaving is slightly simpler than the previous one. On a wire in length in 12-14 sm to type 3 blue, 1 yellow and 1 more blue beads. It turns out that the earring will be formed simultaneously with the petals. It is very convenient for those who only learn beadwork. Now one end of the last blue bead. Tighten in a loop.
Dial 2 more blue beads and pass the workerEnd in the next bead, going for the yellow, until you get some kind of flower. Twist both pieces of wire together, into the twist to collect 4 more green beads. This will be an unforgettable bead. This concludes the master class on making the smallest flowers.
The third option For the largest flowers, you canUse another technique of weaving. On a piece of wire 25-30 cm long, type 9 beads of suitable color and twist the loop so that one of the free ends is 5 cm in size. On the other, dial 9 more beads and again twist the loop. In total, the forget-me-nots will have 5 such petals. From the remaining ends of the wire form a stem, twisting them together.
Separately, make a serenity for the flower of forget-me-not. Take another wire length of 10 cm, collect 4 pieces of yellow beads, and then stretch one of the ends of the wire through 2 beads. Pass the stamen into the middle of the flower and make one twist.
This concludes the third master class on making flowers for a bouquet of forget-me-nots. Turning to photo examples, you can easily repeat the weaving of these lovely flowers.
Of course, forget-me-nots from beads can not be withoutGreen leaves. Unlike flowers, they all need to be done in one weaving technique. True, they will need much less: usually from 6 to 10 pieces. There are 2 ways to do it. The first - in the French technique, and the second - by means of parallel weaving. Both look equally good. The choice depends on the personal preferences of the needlewoman.
French weaving technique Depending onThe number of rows can make large and small leaves. On a wire to type 12 beads, having twisted on one of the ends a wire. This is done so that the beads do not fall off it. At the other end, also make a twist with a loop, dial 1-2 beads more and tighten it to the previous row. Screw the working end around the central axis at an angle of 45 degrees. On the other hand, make the same number. Wire the wire.
For small leaves this will be enough. For large, you need to make one more row. Only one large bouquet will require 3 large and 6 small leaves. Although their number can be changed to your liking. In this technique, you can make leaves in just two hours for the entire bouquet. However, not everyone likes how they look.
Parallel weave Take a piece of greenWire, its length should be 40 cm. Collect 3 beads and knead in the middle. One of the ends is reversed through 2 outer beads. Tighten. This will be the technique of parallel weaving. In exactly the same way, weave the whole leaf with beads, only changing the number of beads according to the following scheme:
- 3 rows - 3 pieces;
- 4 rows - 4 pieces;
- 5 rows - 5 pieces;
- 6 rows - 6 pieces;
- 7 -10 rows - 7 pieces;
- 11 row - 6 pieces;
- 12 rows - 5 pieces;
- 13 row - 4 pieces;
- 14 rows - 3 pieces;
- 15 row - 2 pieces.
After the end of the weaving, the ends of the wire twistTogether and wrap them 3-4 cm below the last row with floral tape or threads. In total, 7-9 leaves will be required. At this master class for the manufacture of components for forget-me-nots from beads is over. You can proceed with the assembly.
Create a composition
After all the flowers are ready andLeaves, they need to be arranged next to each other. Try differently to form a bouquet to choose the best option available. This creative process can take some time, but do not rush. After all, in the end it will look like an unforgettable bead. You can also peep ideas in the photo and video lessons on its making. If you do not like something, it's better to postpone the work the next day. It is not necessary to collect all the flowers and leaves on one stem. You can make a few forget-me-nots from beads to make a real bouquet.
Now it remains to compose the composition. First you need to collect flowers from the largest, and, gradually descending the stalk, add those that are smaller. To keep them well, the composition must be formed on a thick wire. From the top, the stem is wrapped with nylon thread or floral tape. Below the flowers attach the leaves on one level in a circle and also fix with threads or ribbon. Tip the tips with transparent glue, and when it dries, cover the entire stem with acrylic lacquer.
Decoration To ensure that the finished bouquet is not dusty in the cupboardWithout business, it is necessary to "plant" forget-me-nots from beads in a suitable pot or basket. To this end, you need to dilute the alabaster, PVA glue and water in a one-to-one ratio. Transfer the resulting mass into a pot or any other selected form. To insert forget-me-nots at 3-4 cm in depth, make sure that they hold well, and decorate to your liking.
In nature, forget-me-nots are blossoming so early thatThere is not even the first bright green grass. Therefore, usually imitate the bare earth. This can be done by sprinkling a little tea tea or stones. When the alabaster mass is completely dry, shake off any excess and cover with acrylic lacquer and dry it. At this master class on weaving of beads forget-me-not finished.

In conclusion, I would like to note that forget-me-notsCan inspire the creation of not only a bouquet, but also ornaments. The following video shows one of these embodied ideas. The master class is designed as a slide show from the photo, but for experienced needlewomen it will not be difficult to repeat it.
