We present to your attention a detailed step-by-stepA lesson on how to make a bottle or a bottle with newspaper tubes by your own hands. For sure, every hostess wants to have in the house all kinds of containers for storing various trifles - bottles, boxes, caskets and jars. But usually these objects are not distinguished by their graceful execution. However, you can turn them yourself into beautiful and original objects, if you approach this process with imagination. At the same time, it can be achieved that this will not be costly for the family budget. In this particular example, we will talk about the technology of braiding bottles without a bottom. Nevertheless, it is worth noting that as a braided vessel can serve and a vase, and a jar, and a flower pot. Before starting the needlework you will need: • Stapler; • laundry clothespins (they can be replaced with binders); • rope; • newspaper tubes; • acrylic lacquer; • glue or glue stick; • paint (water based). I would like to give some advice on the choice of paper. Practice shows that from a thinner paper the tubules are thinner, which means that the finished product will be more elegant, like a natural vine. For reference: paper has a density indicator, which determines the weight of one sheet of 1 square. Most types of papers used in offset printing have a density of 60 to 300 g / sq. m. For newsprint this figure is 45-60 g / sq. m. m, and for ordinary office paper it is equal to 80 g / sq. m. m. For our example, we used paperdensity of 45 g / square. m. Excellent weaving is obtained from the thermal tape (used in cash registers), because it does not need to additionally paint, but can immediately be opened with varnish. In general, we can use everything for weaving: office paper, magazines, newspapers, fax paper, thermo-tape. The paper is cut by strips with a width of 7centimeters. Say a few words about the technology of twisting the tubes. Some do it with their fingers, someone prefers to use a small diameter needle. You need to try to make a couple of tubes in different ways and choose more convenient. In connection with the fact that the tubules will take a lot, please be patient and twist, twist ... We flew the jar and bottle without a bottom. Take the tube and build one more (for thisinsert the thinner tip of the tube into the thick, not forgetting to drip the glue there), close it with a ring, suitable for the diameter of the vessel. After that, the rack is attached to the ring. This is done with the help of glue, or a stapler. Thus, the entire space of the ring is padded with an indent between the racks of 20-25 millimeters. The number will depend on the variation of the weave. We braided the bottle with a "rope" into two tubes, and a jar a piece with a "rope", and part of the usual "calico" weaving. Note that "cotton" weaving requires an odd number of tubes. After this, the ringlet with tubules is worn onBottle and fixed with a rubber band. Next, one of the most difficult stages is to weave the first row. Here you will need to develop the skill to simultaneously hold all the tubes and tightly weave. Each time you will get more and more qualitative. The next row will be easier to move, starting from the 2-3rd row of the tube will no longer run. Increasing the working tubes will not cause you difficulties: insert the thin tip of the tube into a thicker one, remembering to fix with a drop of glue. After that the weaving continues. It is necessary to be especially careful inThe racks were in place, not moving to the side. To do this, try marking on the bottle using a pencil or marker. Make sure that the weave is tight. Do not forget to pull up all the rows for the riser ducts. However, it is important not to overdo it in order to prevent the tube from breaking off. Otherwise, it will be necessary to carry out gluing, and this will require time and effort. As a result, weaving is brought to the base of the handle. Next, you need to leave 2 tubes where you want to create handles (in our example there are two of them). Then you need to paste 1 tube made of heavier paper, and then go to the wrapping tube (before the tube can be slightly crushed, then it will become flat). Then draw another layer to make the handle more dense, making it very solid. After the pens are fully braided,should return to the main work. Weave to do until it becomes narrower in the neck part. At the same time you need to weave the edges of the handles, create a few more rows, and then reduce the number of tubes-stacks. Then you need to weave through 1 (at the end those that are not needed, you can cut it). Weaving should be brought to the edge of the neck, wrap it with a tube, and the end of the weaving to fix with glue. To make the neck look more attractive, we wrap it with a string. That's all! The decorated bottle is ready. Now it needs to be painted and treated with lacquer. We offer one more variant of braiding of a bottle with the help of newspaper tubes. The weave begins here, as in the usual round day. The bottle will have enough eight tubes for the base, so we immediately increased them. First, two tubes of 2 rows should be braided. Then you need to dilute them and braid on the 1 st to achieve the desired diameter, trying on the bottom of the bottle. Weaving should be done with a "rope". We advise you to fill the bottle with water and close it - from this it will gain additional stability. After you finish the weaving of the bottom, lift the upstairs up and place a piece of pipe under the first one. This is done for easier closing of the series. Now you need to put 3 tubes, weave onerow with a "rope" of 3 tubes and then close the row. After that, plait an ordinary "rope", pause ... and then use the multicolored. Now substitute for the wicker tube of a salad shade and perform a "cotton" version of the weave almost to the end of the row. You will rest against the working tubes of a brown color and here you should turn a salad-colored tubule and weave in the opposite direction, using the "calico" technique. Once you get to the beginning of the row,it is necessary to reduce the weaving by 1 stoechku. In other words, using the "calico" technique, weave it round and round, each time reducing the row on one rack, until you have a kind of a little pea. The tip of the tube hides behind the weaving. The second illustration shows how the ladder should come out. Next, we turn to the weaving of the "rope" with brown tubes, which we spin around the circle that turned out to be a pea. After you "rope" through onecircle, stopping at the very top of the weave, find the lowest point and place a tube of yellow color. Again, we perform "cotton" weaving there and back, but on the contrary, increasing the row, each time grabbing a new rack from each side. Completing weaving with yellow tubesthe necessary number of rows, we again need to close the rows of "cotton" weaving one or two rows of weaving with a "rope" of brown color. And then we do the same, adding new shades. In our case, we used an unpainted newspaper edge. Again, we perform a pea "calico" weave. Then the gorochka is closed by rows of "rope" of brown color. To create an asymmetric drawing, change the number of braided stakes in any direction, as your imagination tells you. Again it is necessary to find the lowest place,Change the color and start building braided racks. Here everything is quite primitive - for color inserts we use cotton weave, and brown tubes always perform a "cotton" weave around the circumference. We decided to make a pen for the bottle, so added between the rows, pushing 2 tubes behind the 2 pillars, through one row of weaving. Then continue, as in the previous case - close the colored rows with a "rope", etc. to the top of our bottle. At the top, the weaving should be leveled. Here the weaving becomes not very convenient, due to the fact that the stakes are too thick, since we already spin at the neck. You can cut stoyechki through one. Those who wish can braid the neck to the very top, but we preferred to close the top with the racks, for which they cut them and put them inside. A variant with a simple bend is also suitable. It should look something like this: We pass to the handle. We increase the tubes and fix the glue, since the handle will receive a certain load when you fill the bottle. Then this loop is executed. Now it needs to be put on the neck, properly aligned, and fixed with a rubber band for money. The handle is braided by the "eight" and it's ready! In the end, we ground and open with varnish. Now it's for sure - everything!
