Weaving from beads - one of the mostCommon modern hobbies. Most often in this technique create beautiful ornaments and weave pictures. But that is not all. The popular direction is flowers and bead trees. Of the small shiny beads, original and practically "live" trees are obtained, able to decorate any interior or become a wonderful gift. At the same time we can not weave a tree with our own hands - it is enough to prepare the necessary materials and follow the scheme.
Where to find the scheme of a tree from beads
We can create a fairytale tree without a schemeIt is quite difficult for novice craftsmen. In the weaving can be a lot of "pitfalls", which are simply not known to beginners, but can significantly complicate the work. Therefore, the best way to navigate the scheme. You can find the necessary scheme of work on our website. Here you will find educational videos and master classes with step-by-step photos that will help you to understand some difficult moments of work. The diagrams indicate the most complete information about all the necessary materials: the number and number of beads (indicated in grams), the thickness of the wire, etc. The work is also fully disclosed there. The scheme details the method of making twigs, how many they need to be made for a specific model.
Before you get started, you canRead the photo and video master classes, which explains in detail how to make a decorative tree of small beads. It is better to stock up in advance with all the necessary materials. The variety, color and size of the beads depends on how the finished tree should look. It is necessary to make a Christmas tree - a small green, orange tree will do - combine small green beads with larger orange beads. In order to make a wood-amulet, you can combine beads with Chinese coins, natural stone or Turkish pebbles-"eyes".
For work you also need wire. It should be stiff enough to hold the shape well, but thin enough to easily thread the beads.
For finishing we need floristic paper - it will hide the wire. If you do not have this option, in some cases, just enough threads.
Basic techniques of weaving trees
Weaving twigs by twisting methodFascinating appearance of the finished tree in photos, it is not so difficult to make such a tree, even for a beginner. Weaving of beaded trees is not so much a difficult task as it requires patience and perseverance. At the heart of it are the basic schemes familiar even to the skilled workers who are just beginning to study this kind of creativity.
Weaving from the beads of trees begins with the most important thing - weaving twigs. Depending on the tree type selected, the techniques will differ, but in any case they are easy to master.
Weave twigs twisting methodThe simplestThe way weave twigs - "twisting". For this, the beads of the desired color are threaded onto the wire. You should get the usual chain. We retreat from the edge of the wire, we count 3 beads and make twisting. Repeat the twisting about every 5 mm until the tips of the wire with the leaves and without them will be on the same level.
After this, the remaining free wire twists it around the working wire - as a result, you should get a zigzag on the leaves.
To make the tree more lush, you can doBranches - so that the branch in shape resembled the letter Y. For this, we twist the free wire approximately in the middle, we dial the chain from the beads and continue the work.
The result is a twig with very small leaves. In this way, you can make, for example, birch twigs.
Loops. Performed exactly the same way as twisting. The difference is mainly in quantity. Take 6 beads instead of 3 - you will get a small loop. You can take more (the number depends on the model). In addition, the number of beads can be the same, but here in order to make a bead tree "Wisteria", you will need to make on one branch different leaves - from 6 to 14.
The weaving method of weaving
In order to weave a fairy tree you canUse a pattern similar to "hoarfrost". On the thread we type 3 beads, one skip. We conduct one end of the wire through the 2 remaining beads. Then on one end of the wire string 2 beads, 1 pass, conduct the wire. Similarly, at the other end. Then we connect the two ends of the wire, fix it with a bead. There should be 2 "needles". Repeat the weave the required number of times, as needed according to the scheme. You get twigs from which you can collect the Christmas tree. Very original will look beaded fern - twigs can be made according to the same scheme.
As can be seen, using the basic techniquesBeadwork, the trees can be weaved quickly and easily. If beginners have difficulties with the manufacture of the first crafts, they are helped to create photo master classes and training videos.
Collect the tree
The number of twigs for each craft can beDifferent. If in order to make a birch you need to make 49 branches, then for some models they will need more than 100. The exact number is always indicated in the diagram or description.
When all the branches are ready, you can proceedAssembly of hand-made articles. To do this, twirl the twigs together, then add 1 more of the twigs. Each large twig is wrapped with a 2 cm floristic tape. We join the big branches together, we rewind the flight line, so that the barrel is smoother. Each large branch must also be connected to a solid base. For this, a rigid rod is used, if there is not one, you can twist several wires or use any improvised materials: a wooden skewer or a pencil. We wind large branches to the base, we close the wire with floral tape. If desired, it can be replaced with threads, and the most effective will look silk. Some wizards use gypsum for processing the trunk: with its help you can make the tree even more realistic. But the use of this material requires an experience that beginners do not have. To learn all the subtleties of this work, you can see a master class on making bead trees with step-by-step photos or training videos.
When the bead tree is completely ready, itsIt remains only to "plant" in a regular pot or any other suitable container and fix it with gypsum, plastic or plasticine. After that, it remains only to give the tree the necessary shape, decorate with additional elements: for example, to close gypsum beads, beautiful stones. Everything is a bead tree ready. The result is definitely worth the effort. And due to the simplicity of the technique, the process of weaving itself is very interesting and interesting, besides, it is possible to quickly erect a whole garden of fairy trees.
How to avoid mistakes in work
Even with a strict adherence to the scheme,The probability of obtaining in the end is not the same tree that I would like to see. If this happens, there is a chance to quit your job. It is especially important not to lose the spirits of masters who are just beginning to learn beadwork.
To make this tree of beads and not make mistakes, you can look through step-by-step photos on the Internet or video master classes. But no less important is the right attitude to work.
Experienced masters, authors of courses and trainingMaster classes are advised to allocate time each day, which can be spent only on needlework. Attempts to weave handicrafts in between everyday activities or in parallel with viewing your favorite movie usually lead to the fact that nothing happens. Needlework is put off in a long box, and the creation of a tree remains only one of the graphs in the plan. Therefore, strangely enough, in the hobby is also important to follow the system. Daily you can allocate at least a little time - even for 10-15 minutes, but this will distribute the work and not abandon for lack of free time. Do not try to weave a beaded tree in one evening. For all its simplicity, this work is quite monotonous, requires attention. In addition, when you work with beads for a long time, your eyes become very tired.
Another common mistake is "wipe out the oldbeads". A fairly economical strategy, but not always guarantees a good result. Beads, like any material for creativity, can eventually lose sight, and as a result, the work will not look the best.
From this the third error also occurs: "onlyI'll try. " This setup makes you take your work seriously. Initially, it seems that the hack is just a draft, but the next one will be necessarily successful. In fact, when a bead tree turns out not at all what you would like, the fighting spirit is lost.
Sakura from beads own hands
In conclusion - a small master class: we will make
. For work most often use pink beads,To get a blooming cherry blossom. But this is not an axiom: you can use red beads (the tree will turn out to be autumn), and green. In total, it will take about 200 grams. To make the tree more realistic, you can use beads of two shades.
We now turn to weaving twigs of crafts. To make 1 leaf, we type on the wire 6 beads, twist. Leave 1 cm, again, we type 6 beads. In total, 11 leaflets should be obtained. Twist the twig starting from above or below, as it is more convenient.
We use the same scheme to make the remaining twigs. The more they are done, the more splendid the sakura will be. Usually for a tree of beads make from 70 to 100 small twigs.
Next, we take 3 twigs-billet and twist them together. Get one big twig. We twist among ourselves 2 large blanks - this will be the upper branch of the cherry twig. They should be 2.
To make one median branch, take 3 large blanks, twist together. There will be a total of 3 median branches.
The lower branches of sakura can be made 2 or 3. For this we twist 5 pieces.
Let's move on to building the tree. We take a basis - a thick wire, and we fasten the top branches. We are wrapping a floral tape.
A little below, we attach another wire, attach the median branchlets. We again wrap the barrel with scotch tape. Even lower we fix the base with the lower branches, we wrap it with scotch tape or floral tape.
The tree itself is ready. Now install it in the mold, slightly bend, fill the mold with alabaster. With the same solution we process the tree trunk. In order not to damage the leaves, they can be covered with foil. When the solution is completely dry, cover the trunk with paint, and then varnish. When the trunk is completely dry, you can remove the foil and beautifully spread the twigs.
Taking into account all possible errors and getting acquainted withMaster class, to weave a tree with their own hands is not so difficult. Models of beaded trees there is a mass - you can weave the familiar apple trees, fir-trees, sakura, etc. And you can create an unusual tree with your own hands, as if from a fantasy world (for example, the same whispering tree of Eeva). The principle of weaving in any case will be common, and therefore it will not be difficult to cope with this work. The main thing is to connect fantasy and not be afraid to experiment.
