Kanzashi came to us from the East. Approximately 400 years ago, Japanese women began to lay their long and straight hair in intricate hairstyles that needed to be stitched with various scallops, double hairpins or just sticks. In those days, women's clothes were very closed. Kimono concealed Japanese women literally from head to toe, and therefore jewelry was given mainly to hair. Of course, every woman wanted to look special and unique, so different hairpins began to adorn with wonderful flowers, composed of pieces of silk. In addition to the decorative function of crafts in the technique of silk origami, the role of social markers was also fulfilled. Looking at the elegant jewelry, it was possible to understand whether a woman has a husband and children, what position she occupies in society and much more. The tradition of wearing kimono and following old customs was long maintained by the geisha. Until the middle of the last century. It is in the outfits of "people of art" that traces the traditions of Kanzash for hair. It was geishas that were worn by Kansas according to the seasons. Since now the autumn, the symbols of which the Japanese had bells and chrysanthemums, we suggest you to make these flowers in Kansas technique. They can be glued on a hairpin, hairpin "crocodile" or any other, which you prefer. The first will be chrysanthemum kanzashi. To make such an ornament is very simple, they will copeeven beginners. At the same time, a long wooden or plastic hairpin decorated with such a flower will become a great accessory, because you can make a flower in several different variations, combined in shades with the chosen outfit or other accessories. Materials for work:
- The white tape of satin is 2.5 cm wide and a small piece 5 cm wide;
- Candle or lighter;
- Glue gun or instant transparent glue;
- A half-bus of pearl shade for the core.
Cut from a white ribbon 2.5 cm wide by 40 pieces of 6 cm in length. Fold the piece along, the wrong side out. Mentally divide the strip into 4 equal parts and cut off the upper right corner, occupying ¼, as in the photo. Turn it to the front and fold it in half again. Now you need to melt the cut off part above the fire. On the opposite side of the petal fold the edges overlap, as in the photo. Slice and melt slightly over the fire. That's what happened. Now take a round base. You can use a circle of cardboard, or a large flat button. If you use a button, the finished chrysanthemum can be sewn, and only then glue the place of connection with a hair clip or hairpin. In this case, the decoration will be easier to change, if suddenly you want something new as an ornament on this hairpin. Glue the base circle with a ribbon with a larger width or simply a white satin material. On the one hand there is always a small gap in the middle in which one can see cardboard or a button. On this side we will glue the petals. At the very edge of the circle, glue the first eight petals. They are a little overlapped. Similarly, glue another four layers of eight petals. Each layer needs to be glued a little closer to the center. All layers must go staggered To disguise the junction and makebeautiful glasnevinku glue half-beads. Since its base is flat, it fits better than a round bead, so it will look more harmonious. The next ornament for the hair in the most ancient Japanese traditions is the Kanchashi bell. This master class is a bit more complicated. He will require from you an initial skill in folding round petals in Kansas technique. Do not worry, if you have forgotten a little or are still confused in the sequence of actions, we will offer you a scheme for a reminder, and you will succeed. Materials for work:

A highlight and originality of this belllies in the turned round petals. It looks interesting and unusual. For the petals you will need the squares of the satin ribbon. In our case, 5x5. Cut off the edges to melt over the fire. Fold the 10 round petals. Here are step-by-step photos for folding. As you can see, there is nothing complicated. All the petals folded and fasten the edges with fire. That's what happened. Now you need to unfold the lobe from the wrong side to yourself and apply a little glue, as shown in the photo. Press and hold for fastening. That's what happened. Now you need to unscrew five of the ten petals. As in the photo. Now you need to fold the inverted and ordinary petals in pairs. You can apply a little glue for better adhesion. That's what happened. Five double petals. In order for the bell to be absolutely beautifulyou can decorate it with silver triangles (if you have a golden ribbon left, they will be golden). Take a piece of ribbon, fold it in half and cut it as follows. immediately burn. For this it is very convenient to use a burner, but if you do not have it, you can get by with scissors with a candle or a cigarette lighter. Paste the resulting point to the petals. Look at the photo. Now we collect our bell with the help of a needle and thread. This is how the wrong side looks. Now you need to make stamens. To do this, stir the PVA glue and flour or starch to a consistency of very thick sour cream. Dip one tip of the line into a mass and allow to dry. If you want more noticeable stamens, then dip after drying again. The mass may dry out a little, but it's easy to fix it by adding a little more PVA glue. After repeated drying, stamens can be dyed. For this, it is very convenient to use nail polish. Although you can use any other coloring agents. When the stamens are ready, it is necessary to apply transparent glue in the middle of the flower. The bell itself is ready. Now the line of buds has come. There will be two of them and for each one you need to make 2 round lobes inverted. They will need to be glued together like this. Now we will make of pins with hats, beads and holders of a suspension bracket. Put on the pin, the holder and then the bead. Cut off the excess from the pin, and from the rest of the round pliers make a loop. Now take a piece of satin cord. Lubricate the loops with glue and put on a string. He tied a knot in a ringlet. A knot can also be glued for greater reliability. Blend the buds with glue and put them in the holders like this. For the basis of fixing our bell is takenlarge flat button. From the green ribbon cut the circle, put the inside of the button. On the edge pass the most common stitches. Apply a little glue on the button along the perimeter and tighten the thread. Expand the base side with a seam face to itself. Apply glue and attach suspension. Then glue the flower on top. To make the composition absolutely incredibly attractive, you need to add leaves. Make them narrow petals in Kansas technique from a satin ribbon green 2.5 cm wide. Similarly vyvorachivaem flower. It will only need 5 leaves. Now it remains to paste our design tobarrette, stick or hairpin. If you have empty gaps at the junction of the base and the flower, you can decorate them with pieces of green ribbon.
