Technique for making straws for weaving
For the manufacture of items from newspapers usedseveral options for blanks: tubes and a vine of paper. The tubes are obtained by winding the newspaper over the skewer, and the vine is the same tube, but oblate. Beginners will most easily cope with paper vines, weaving from tubes is a more complicated task. To independently make paper tubes,cut the newspaper sheet into strips about 7-9 cm wide. Now place the needle on the corner of the paper strip. Further, the course of your work will depend on the desired rigidity of the finished tubes: the lower the angle of the spoke, the stiffer the tube becomes. The best option is to twist the tube at an angle of 45-60 °. Wrap the newspaper strip on the skewer (spoke). Wrap up to the middle, remove the skewer and finish making the tube without it. In the end it remained to fix the newspaper with glue, so that the tube would not unwound. Take into account the fact that the top and bottom of the rods must be of different thicknesses. Throwing a basket of newspaper tubes To make a basket of newspaper twigs, you will need a cardboard box that will be used as a base. From its size will depend on the number of paper twigs used in the work, as well as paint, lacquer and all sorts of decorative elements that will make the basket beautiful and original. First, you need to prepare a box, cutting off the top covers. Now the future basket needs to be shaped by building a frame. At the bottom of the box with a pencil, identify the places where the main tubules will be located. If you are planning to make a denser product, place the base twigs as close as possible to each other. Glue them on the marking, note that the corners also need to be glued on the twig. Turn the box over and fix the tubes with an elastic band or cord. To create the first row, use the extremetube tube, it needs to braid the next tube. To get around all the walls of one tube will not be enough. So when it's over, just build the next one by inserting it inside the previous one and fixing it with glue. Stoech needs to be braided according to this scheme: one is braided in front, the other - behind, etc. So you need to complete the entire box. To make your product more original,You can weave a ribbon between the tubes. But do not weave it immediately, because you still need to paint the finished basket. Just back off the place, corresponding to the thickness of the tape and braid further. When your weaving approaches the edge of the box,You need to fix the tube and hide its edge inside with tweezers. You should get a box with pipes sticking up, which you need to hide. To do this, get each of them for a third, an example can be seen in the photo. The box is ready, it remains to paint it with acrylic paints and decorate with fabric and ribbons. Now the basket looks beautiful and neat, it will decorate your house and will store all the little things. Layered weaving in the manufacture of baskets fromnewspaper tubes The advantage of layered weaving of baskets is that the object acquires an incredibly beautiful and unusual texture. At the same time, such a weave turns out to be quite smooth, in turn you do not need to use the shape for the base. To get a basket is not very large, you will need 32 tubes. Glue two wide tips to each other. As a result, you will have 16 long paper tubes. Next, you need to divide them into 4 identical handfuls of 4 twigs and twist together in a checkerboard pattern. Look at the example shown in the photo. Next, take another tube, fold it twice and begin to weave the bottom in the technique of "rope": Twist the bars (two by each) with a crossing tube. Prepare a pot, a bucket orsomething like this (the boat will be used as a form). And when the bottom of the weave will fit the size of the bottom of the existing shape, arrange it on the weave, and proceed to form the rims of the future basket, twisting the twigs one by one (as if twisting one another) and lifting them up. Now go to the weaving of the walls. The very first 3-4 rows should be weaved in the "rope" technique, the subsequent rows - in the "herringbone" technique. When the walls of the basket are woven to the end,Fill the working rods inside and cut them. In order for you to get a beautiful edging, workers should not cut the twigs, glue several tubes to the base bars. This procedure can be done in two ways: glue another stick at the back using an adhesive gun, or slightly loosen the weaving of each base stick from the inside, and insert the rods inward. Please note, if you are working on an unpainted basket, then insert the twigs at an angle in the direction of the future weaving. In case the product is painted, you do not need to do this. After that, go to work on the edging. Grab two working twigs, they need to be wound over the main right tube. Next, get these two twigs from behind the next main rod, eventually pull them out. Take the next pair, which is located to the left of the weaving. Your task is to perform the same actions with all working twigs, bypassing the circle. In the end, lead the tubes back and from the inside, glue them to the warp rods. Or you can execute several rows of "rope", hide the ends inside, and cut off excess. As for the manufacture of pens,just. Determine for yourself how much to take paper twigs for the manufacture of handles: the more their number, the stronger will be the handle. One of the ends of a pair of rows below through the main weave, at a small distance, do the same with the other end of the handle. Attach the long tips to the handle with threads. Now take another tube, slightly flatten it and wrap the handle, fixing with glue. Leave the basket until the glue dries completely. Now the basket is ready, it remains to apply paint. To begin with, color the product in a darker color, leave it to dry. After that, take a small sponge, dip it into the white paint, wring out and walk along the weaving. In conclusion, dilute the PVA glue with a little water and primetute the product. Cover with acrylic lacquer and the decorative basket is ready. Basket in chess technique To begin with, you need to form a bottom and prepare a form for which weave will be carried out. For this, prepare two cartons, which will correspond to the dimensions of the bottom of the box-base. On one of them, outline the places on which the pipes will be glued. The distance between them should be about 2 cm. Next, properly grease the cardboard with the notation of glue, place the paper rods along the marks. In addition to those that were noted, additionally glue two twigs at the corners of the box. When all the rods are in place, glue a second cardboard on top. For strong fixation, secure the two cardboard bottoms with pegs and leave until completely dry. After the bottom of the basket is ready,put the box-shape inside and start to make out the bottom of the product. To do this, take the most extreme twig, wind it over the second (as if twisting one another) and lift it up, attaching it with a clothespin to the top of the box - so the vertical tubes will not move during operation. In the same way do the rest of the rods - that's how you will be able to form the basis of the future box. In the illustrations presented below, everything is clearly shown. Then proceed to the manufacture of the walls of the product. For greater strength, weave the lower part with an ordinary pigtail. Next, according to the picture, start weavingwindows in checkerboard pattern. After completing the checkerboard, continue to weave the pigtail to the required height. Shut down the work by hiding all the tips of the newspaper tubes. Cut the vertical ribs at a distance of 6 cm, bend them and hide them inside the weave. Cover the basket with PVA glue, then paint with stain or paint. Finally, apply lacquer to the product. Below you can see the final result. Weaving from newspaper tubes: basket in the shape of a shoe Such an original shoe can become another creative success in your collection of works. In addition, a similar product can easily be used as a basket, an original flower pot or souvenir. To begin with, cut out two parts of the sole from the cardboard, between which you need to paste the tubes. And perform lifting weaving 4 cm in height in the technique of "rope". After this, fold the front pillars (in this example, 9 pieces were bent). Fly them in the same technique with two turns, then continue to weave in a circle. After completing several rows, again separate the front rowsstoechki, but already adding to them one more from two sides. Again, pull them several times. After that, go through all the pillars of the base in a circle four times. Then separate the racks in the center and weave themboot top, turning the stanchions outward. While working on the product, on the way correct its appearance by turning the stanchions inward or outward. As a result, the working tubes need to be hidden inside the weaving rows. The main stonks slightly cut, bend and hide between the rows. Paint the slipper with the selected paint (betterpick a darker color), and then blot the sponge in the light paint, squeeze it and walk on the surface of the shoe. Allow the product to dry and put a decorative braid inside. Now the basket is finally ready. A small basket of newspapers First of all, twist the right amount of newspaper tubes. And that in the process of making you do not have to glue the tubes too often, glue several tubes together into one long one. When making ordinary paper rods, one end always turns out to be wider than the other. Spread a narrower tip on the glue and put the other end of the tube on it with a wide tip. Allow the long tubes to dry thoroughly and start to work. The first thing from the cardboard is to cut out two identical in size circle. Each cardboard circle from one side should be well missed, wait a minute and lay one of them on the tubules (shorter) in the shape of the sun. They will be the rack of the basket. You should have a kind of sun, as in the photo. Next, cover it with another cardboard circle and press it down with a heavy object (books, etc.). So leave the bottom with the racks to dry, after 40 minutes you can begin to weave the basket itself. Initially, you need to choose the form by whichand will roll a basket so that the walls do not go sideways. To do this, select a container, the bottom of which will correspond to the bottom of the basket. If this was not found, build the foundation yourself using cardboard and scotch, as shown in the photo. Starting the weaving of the walls, first bend one twig and fix it on the stand with glue. Weave the most commonway, skipping a paper tube alternately under the bar and above it. Continue the weaving until the basket reaches the height you need. Pass the working tube inside and fix it between the rows. If the tips of the pillars are too long, cut off excess, bend them and fix them inside with glue. As a result, you should get such a basket, as in the photo. As you can see, it is not finished yet, it needs to be painted. Apply the first layer of stain, allow it to dry, and then apply a second coat. If desired, you can make a pen. To do this, take a few paper tubes, wrap them with another tube of paper and glue them to the inner sides of the basket. Cover the handle with stain and allow the product to dry. Above you can cover the basket with acrylic lacquer. It has no smell, so you can safely store the product inside any room.
