The tree is not just a tree. For many - this is the main symbol of the New Year. It is to the Christmas tree children run on the first of January in the morning in the hope of finding there a gift from Santa Claus. Well, what if, for some reason, there is no possibility to put a large elegant Christmas tree? In this case, the tree can be made small. But as? To tie! This MC shows how to tie a beautiful little tree. For the Christmas tree we will need:
- threads of two colors - light green and dark green (alternatively - green and white);
- beads for decoration;
- cardboard cone;
- double-sided scotch on paper basis;
- needle and thread.
This Christmas tree consists of two long ribbons,Crocheted with threads of different colors. Threads are desirable to take contrast not only in color (dark and light) but also in texture - mohair, booked yarn, weed or thread with lurex. This MK uses bright green yarns - angora, and dark green - bunched yarn. Let's start with knitting the first ribbon. To do this, we connect a chain of loops, about 150-170 cm in length. Now we connect the second row of ribbon. To do this, in the third loop from the hook we will fasten 2 posts, in which we will make one overtone. Through one loop of a chain we shall fasten one simple column. Another loop through a fan of five bars with a crochet. And we will continue to knit so further - a simple post, a fan of 5 bars, a simple post. Between the elements of the ribbon we always skip one loop and knit in the second loop. And so on to the end. Similarly we knit a second ribbon. Now proceed to the formation of the Christmas tree. To do this, we glue a cardboard cone with double-sided scotch tape. Scotch should be taken on paper, not foamed basis. It is better to glue the thread and do not fall off later. You need to glue it as tightly as possible, trying to cover the whole area. Unstick the protective layer and wrap the cone with both ribbons starting from the top. We wrap the Christmas tree tightly, so that the paper base can not be seen. Apply the ribbon to the cone with tape, you need an edge, that is, a chain of loops, which began knitting. Continue to wind the cone until the crocheted ribbons run out. Superfluous cut off. Cut the cone so that it could not be seen from under the knitted part of the tree. In this case, the tree should stand well. Let's start decorating the Christmas tree. To do this, we use beads of the same color, but different in size and shape. Beads we will sew to the Christmas tree with the usual reel thread. Sew the first bead between the first and second ribbon of the Christmas tree. Now let's pass the needle through the three layers of the braid. And thread on the second bead. Then we again pass the needle and thread through 3 layers of knitted braid. We pass one more bead and again we sew three layers of braid with a needle. Go to the top, turn around and sew the beads down from the top, just through 3 layers of ribbon. We alternate beads of different shapes and sizes. It is desirable to use large beads from below, and closer to the top of the Christmas tree - smaller ones. At the top of the Christmas tree, we sew a large bead and fix it with a large bead in color. The Christmas tree is ready!
