Weaving from newspapers is relatively young,but accessible to every kind of creativity. This technique of weaving will help create a large number of useful, beautiful and functional items for the home that will not go unnoticed. A lot of caskets, baskets, vases, napkins - all this, and many other useful items can be created with their own hands, using such art as weaving from newspaper tubes. The emergence of technology of weaving from newspapers The history of the origin of this type of needlework begins from the distant past, when people wove multifunctional objects used in everyday life, from willow vines, rods, straw, etc. Although our ancestors used this kind of art not for pleasure, but because of the urgent need. Most often in the past, vines, baskets, etc., were woven from the vines. The experience of our ancestors was useful when weaving objects from newspaper tubes. Ways of plaiting are many. And each of them is often used to create a specific subject. Guide to weaving from newspaper tubes for beginners Begin work on weaving items from newspaper tubes, with the preparation of materials, and you will need them a lot. For this purpose, absolutely everything is suitable: magazines, newspapers, advertising brochures, etc. Of the usual reversal of the newspaper, there are usually four tubes. Make them not so hard: you need to tightly wind the newspaper segment on the spoke, fixing it with glue. Prepare as many tubes as possible, so that you do not return to these actions as you work. Keep them must be extremely accurate, it is very important not to crumple and not to spoil the tubes. The process of twisting the tubes The most elegant and versatile tubes are obtained from newspaper segments 5 by 30 cm. Although the master chooses the thickness of the material, depending on the future product. To make a tube, you will definitely need a spoke. It will be used as a basis, on which the newspaper segment will be wound (very tightly!). When you twist the newspaper to the middle of the knitting needle, you can safely remove it, the process will go well without it. The only thing we should not forget about is fixing the edge of the tubes with glue. If you do not like the general look of the product fromnewspaper tubes, you can paint it. Most often, the staining of tubes occurs after the end of work, when the product is completely ready. Although the paper can be painted before work begins. To create an imitation of weaving from the vine, use the stain for the tree. Consider one more thing: you only need to paint the product if you are 100% sure that the product will not lose its elasticity after the dyes are exposed. If you are just now familiar with this kind of creativity and want to try your hand at making items from newspaper tubes, then start with lighter and smaller products. And only after you figure out with this technique, to conquer the tops of weaving products from newspaper tubes. To begin with, you can master the technique by making an ornamental tree for storing jewelry. Decorative wood for jewelry made of newspaper tubes The wood for jewelry is very original and unusual. It seems that it is woven from expensive materials. But in fact, this subject is gossiped from unnecessary material, which many of us gladly get rid of - these are old newspapers. To create an original wood for storing jewelry, you need to prepare 7-8 large sheets of newspaper, PVA glue, a brush, white gouache, and also a varnish. Prepare from the pipes in advance. 7 newspaper pages will create about 30 tubes. First you need to form a barrel. To do this, form a bundle of 15 tubes, wrap it with a thread and cover with paper. After that, the trunk should be wrapped around with one more tube. During this work, always anoint the tube with glue, tamper with it to the desired height. At the top you should have free ends,which are divided into two unequal parts. They also need to be wound spirally with the help of other tubes. Thanks to this, you will begin to form the branches of the future decorative tree. After reaching the middle, divide each of the two branches into two other parts. Continue to weave this way until the moment when there is only one tube on the branches. Form the crown, cutting off excess scissors,make curly curls from the tubes. To make the barrel more massive, wrap it with the remaining tubes. Mix PVA glue with gouache, and cover the product with this mass. When the tree is dry, cover it with varnish. Decorative tree for storing jewelry is ready. Now that you have mastered making morelight items from newspaper tubes, you can proceed to create more difficult projects. One of them is an elegant casket. Weaving a graceful casket Well, what girl does not store on her dressing table a small casket for jewelry or other small things? If you still do not have such an item, then you can use the technique of weaving from newspaper tubes to become the owner of a small cute box. As in the previous master class, nothing butglue PVA, newspapers and paints, you will not need. To begin with, make pipes: cut all the newspapers into strips about 10-15 cm wide, wrap each of them with a spoke to the middle, then remove the needle and twist the tubes to the end, fixing the tips with glue. Leave them to dry. Begin the weaving itself from the bottom of the box. Prepare 4 bundles of 4 tubes, you need to cross them with each other as shown in the photo. To ensure that the tubes do not move during operation, fix the intersections with glue. There are many ways of weaving from newspapers. One of the main is the "rope" technique. To begin with, take one tube, bend it in half and pull the two tubes of the base together. In a similar way, continue to circle each subsequent tubule in two (make 3 - 4 rows). To increase the bottom dimensionally and identically, then you need to circle one tube. When the tube ends, flatten its ends and insert the other two inside. To make the casket look symmetrical andcorrect form, use a jar with a volume of 2 - 3 liters. When the bottom of the casket reaches the desired diameter, put it inside, and continue the weave by repeating the shape of the glass container. When the stenochki are of the required height, go to the end of the weaving. Guide the tubes of the base one by one, move the tips out through the weave and cut them. If you hide the ends inside, the product will not get the desired shape of the pot. The lid for the casket is made in the same way. Therefore, if you understand the first part of the master class, then you will be able to easily create a cap. And that it was slightly larger than the box itself and easily closed it, put the box inside instead of the can and flock it. In the end, you have to make a pen. In this example, an example of manufacturing a pen in the shape of a wine bottle is shown. Bend the tubules in half and thread through the cap so that the ends look up. Pipes should be placed every 2 cm. Twist the tubes with a "rope" pattern: 3 - 4 rows in a circle, and the following - round and round, gradually reducing the number of newspaper tubes. In order for the product to keep its shape well, coverglue it in two coats and allow to dry. As a result, paint the casket with stain and cover it with varnish. If you wish to achieve the effect of natural wood, then cover the product with wood stain before two layers of PVA. Additionally, decorate the product with dried flowers, ribbons, etc. Now the jewelry box is ready. Master-class for making a tray If youlike in the morning to make pleasant surprises in the form of breakfast in bed or plan to surprise your loved one, then the presence of a tray is necessary. Do you still have it or do you want to acquire something new? See the master class presented below to make by yourself a unique masterpiece from newspaper tubes. Items made from vines give the interior an unusual and original look. However, the vine is a very problematic material, which requires long preparatory work. But to weave a tray out of newspapers is easy enough, especially since this material is abundant in everyone. The tray, made in the form of "Yin-Yan" and made of newspaper tubes, looks almost the same as objects from the vine. In the beginning, as always, you need to make pipes. For this product, choose those publications, sheets of which are sufficiently smooth and thin. Most often on such a paper print financial and economic news. Cut each sheet into four pieces and twist the tubes diagonally. To make a tray, you need at least 50 pieces. We need to start the plaiting of the tray from the bottom. To do this, take four bundles of five tubes and cross them in a staggered manner. The place where they intersect should be carefully leveled with a rolling pin and cemented with glue so that during the work, no one tube could move. The first tube, which will be braided by others,You need to bend it in half and start bending around the three tubules of the base. From the second to the fifth row you need to braid two tubes. And during the subsequent weaving it is necessary to braid each of the tubes until the tray reaches the desired value. When one of the tubes comes to an end, you just need to flatten the ends and insert them into the new tube. For more secure bonding, apply glue to the tips. But you will have to suspend your work to give the glue a final dry. Now go to the manufacture of the skirting boards. To do this, you need to mesh the tubules of the base with one another in a clockwise direction, as in the photo. They must occupy a vertical position. Now continue to weave the trays of the tray with the working pattern to the required height. Working on the last row, bend all the tubes one by one, and fill the tips inward. They should be located parallel to the bottom. Now you need to make an inner edge,which will give the tray a form of "Yin-Yan". To do this, draw a line on the bottom where it will pass. Insert the tubes along it at a distance of 2 cm from each other, bending them in half. And with the same "rope" weaving, make a side. Take into account the moment, that at the points of connection of the flange with the walls of the tray, the tubes must be passed through. Close the last row in a similar way. The final stage will be painting the product. First, cover the tray with stain for wood, and after that - with two layers of glue. Allow the product to dry, the damp tray will be soft, but after drying the product the tray will acquire the desired stiffness. And in conclusion you left to cover the tray with varnish in 2 - 3 layers. Shamrock photo frame from the newspaper tubes Trubochki can be used not only for all kinds of weaving. They can be twisted into original rolls and glued together, creating various original compositions. Thus, you will have delicate decorations for the room. Similarly, you can create a frame for wall clocks, mirrors or photo frames. In order to create an openwork photo frame, you will need a newspaper, glue, needle, scissors, white sheet of paper, as well as cardboard. To make such an object you will need tubes of different sizes: 18 strips - 10x30 cm, and 8 strips - 30x40 cm. Fold the tubes in the manner described above and fix them with glue. Small tubes are squeezed in such a way to make stripes. Next you need to twist the stripes using a pencil or a finger. Loosen the rings until their diameter reaches 4 cm. Fix the tips with glue. As a result, you should get 18 circles. Now get down to making the basics. Cut a rectangle of 15x20 cm from cardboard and from white paper. Stick the paper onto the cardboard base. Now take 4 long newspaper tubes and cut two of them pieces 20 cm long, and the others - 15 cm. As these segments will serve as framing of the frame, cut the tips at an angle of 45 degrees. Paint all the details with acrylic paint. Now all the details need to beconstruction. On the perimeter of the cardboard glue the cut tubes. Wait until they dry and paste on top circles from newspaper tubes: 5 circles for long sides and 4 for short ones. Those tubes that remain will serveframing the frame. Measure the length along the perimeter, cut the tubes to the desired size at an angle of 45 degrees and glue them around the perimeter. Leave the structure to dry and cover it with a final lacquer. The original panel for decorating the room Using newspaper tubes, you can make anything. And you should not confine yourself to baskets and vases, try an original decoration for the room. The panel made of newspaper tubes is quite an original idea. The required materials and tools are unchanged. First, twist the required number of tubes from the newspapers and slightly flatten them. Then divide them into two halves, one paint in violet, the other in white. Twist all the tubes into the rings, while coating each with adhesive for a strong fixation. In the course of the work, alternate the colors of the tubes. You need to make circles of different sizes and with different combinations of colors. In the end, just sew all the circles together with strong threads.
