How to make flowers from a tree? Only with my own hands! Having become acquainted with this material, you will learn how to make flower compositions from wood yourself, which will be one of the elements of topiary. Before starting work, you need to prepare the following tools and supplies: sharpener; brush; scissors; paints (watercolor); wrapping paper; glue; paper; gypsum or clay; flax or ordinary thread; a few twigs of a favorite tree; sisal; pieces of cinnamon (in sticks - 1 pc.). 1. Prepare the branches. Using the pruner, carefully, so as not to break, cut the branches from the tree you like. For our example, we took branches from apple trees and birches. Try to choose branches in thickness equal to a pencil. Cutting is best done on one branch, otherwise, if you cut several branches at a time, they can dry out and then you will not be able to make flowers. 2. Take a well ground knife and remove the bark from the branches, sharpening the edge like a pencil. 3. We make roses from a tree. With the aid of a pencil sharpener, we begin to remove the chips from the branches, which will then twist like a rose. If the twisting does not go as it should, you can slightly tweak the shavings. For the next flower, do not forget to cut off the sharp edge of the branch beforehand, and then do everything as described above. The "lushness" of each rose is your own choice. 4. Coloring the flowers. Choose from watercolors the most pleasant shade for you and paint our roses in it. Before doing this, we recommend training on extra shavings, because the watercolor will change its color slightly on the tree. Do not forget, after painting the roses, give them time to dry. In principle, the coloring of flowers is not required and remains at your discretion. 5. We form the basis of our tree. Prepare paper and threads in advance (in this example we used green color). Compressing the paper with paper, we form a ball of the necessary dimensions (for example, we have a ball 3,5 centimeters in diameter). After that we wind it with threads and some sharp object, for example, with a scissors we make a hole in it. Take cinnamon (stick and lightly glue the edge with glue). Then pour some glue into the hole of the ball and insert cinnamon there. 6. Putting it all together. First, we glue the cut roses to the paper ball. You can place bunches of threads or sisal in the voids formed between the flowers. 7. Decoration of a flower pot. In our example, a glass of plastic was used as a pot. At your discretion, you can choose other items, such as a ceramic cup or a pot of wood. The glass should be wrapped from the outside with colored paper, making small creases for greater elegance. Use glue to fix the paper. Then wrap the linen thread around the pot. 8. We fix our composition Soak gypsum or clay so that they become soft. Put this mass in a glass and after that, slowly, insert a stick of cinnamon, making sure that it does not break. Wait until clay or gypsum withers, and then you can decorate it with silt, for example, with the help of moss.
