We begin the weaving with petals. The scheme of their creation is quite simple, if it is not clear, then you can use the video, where everything is shown in great detail.
So, take a wire 0.3 mm thick andWe string on it beads of blue color. It is necessary to string a lot of beads. Now you need to make a loop, for which you need to move 5 beads and twist the wire. Next, the second row must go to perform it, you need a wire with a bead strung around it around the row number 1, then in the same way around the row number 2 twist row number 3. Now you need to indent and, repeating all the actions, weave the second petal, the third petal and the fourth petal. We leave a small tail, about 5 centimeters, now you can cut off excess wire. Now we put on the wire a bead that needs to be lowered down, then the wire needs to be twisted - this will be the leg of our flower.
At the second stage of work we weave the leaves. Take the wire, measure two meters and cut off this piece. Now string a lot of green beads on it. We round off the end of the wire so that our beads do not roll off it. Just as we were weaving the petals, weaving the leaves, we wind the wire with beads around the row by layers, only here we need to make rows not of five, but of ten beads. At the last stage of weaving the leaves you need to make denticles on them, so that they look realistic and look like the leaves of a living flower. To weave the leaves, use a scheme of French weaving for the leaves with jags, or watch the video.
Now we need to put together all the details - leaves andPetals. We take the wire, which was prepared for the stem of our flower. Using a thread for the winding, gently pull the flowers to our stalk and arrange them so that they are shaped like a ball. After that, we also thread the leaves with a thread. We make several such twigs, and then collect all the twigs in the bushes. Our hydrangea (master class) from beads is ready. It remains only to plant it in a pot, like a real flower and strengthen it there. We take a pot, put a flower there. We raise plaster in water (you can also use alabaster) to get a solution of density similar to sour cream. Fill with a solution "sitting" in the pot hydrangea, after which we supplement with some decorative strokes, but this is already for someone to have a fantasy and who has some taste. As you can see, the scheme of weaving hydrangeas is not complicated and underperformance for even novice masters.
