Spring is the time of flowers and love. And what is the very first flower that emerges from under the snow through the green grass, certainly a snowdrop.
However, now, before they are too early to make yourself happy, you can now make snowdrops from beads with your own hands.
Such flowers will be a wonderful decoration for your home.
Master class on beading snowdrops
From materials for beadwork of colors you will need:
- White, transparent beads;
- Saturated green beads;
- 2-3 meters of wire, 0.3 mm in diameter;
- Threads in order to hide the wire;
- Schemes of weaving.
In addition to the materials for the bouquet, you can pick upDid for the pot. In search of solutions you can overlook the photo in our article or magazines on needlework. As an option, you can make a vase or a basket for unusual snowdrops.
Just in the work on the composition, you will need a clipper, an organizer, so as not to lose the small details.
So, let's start our master class on weaving snowdrops from beads.
Petals The first thing we do is a saberPetals of the future flower. For each element it will be necessary, at least 3 beads. In total, we should get 15 petals. I follow the scheme, perform the detail: we take wire, 40 cm in diameter and one bead of green color.
We carry out the weaving according to the technique of parallelWeaving, i.e. Each next row will contain one more bead, in relation to the previous one. In the third row add white beads and continue to alternate with green beads. Further work only with white beads, continuing the parallel weaving, only the number of beads in the series change. So, according to the scheme, the drawing should be:
- 4th row - 5 beads;
- 5th - 6 beads;
- 6, 7th - 7 pieces each;
- 8th - 6 beads;
- 9th - 5 beads;
- 10th - 4 beads;
- 11th - 3 pieces.
After in the 12th row, turn on the green again. So in this and the other rows we use green beads, weaving three beads in a row. In the last row, we leave only one bead. We do not fix the finished petal, since it will need to be connected to the second one. We make two more petals for the snowdrops, for this we rub them up to the 13th row and connect them together. Connections of flower parts are done with the help of parallel weaving technique. So you have one full petal and two not full. First connect the second and the first, for this end the wire passes between the 12th and 13th rows. Then you pass the free end to the third petal. At the free end, type two green beads, the free end of the wire passes through the 14th and 13th row of the first petal, and after - the second. As a result, something is formed that resembles a cup in shape, which is usually under the base of the flower. Finish the element weaving the 14th row for the third petal, where according to the scheme there should be one green bead.
Heart of a flower For weaving the core, youNeed a wire - a length of 25 cm on the wire is typed from the beginning 4 white beads, after one green and at the end of 5 white beads. To form the ring, it is necessary to pass the working end through the first bead of white color. Align the resulting ring and tighten the loop. After repeating the technique, make three more pieces of the core. When everything is ready to connect the parts, the resulting parts must fit tightly together.
Now connect the petals and the core of the flower. To do this, twist the loose ends of the wire, connecting the parts. So you got a ready flower. Repeating, the scheme make the rest of the flowers.
However, on this master class for making flowers from beads is not finished, the composition still needs to be supplemented with leaves and a pot.
To make leaves for snowdrops, perhaps, the easiest in all work. For the harmony of the bouquet, it is better if they are not more than 1-2.
For leaflets, a wire of 70Cm and green beads, shade darker than the base of the flower. Beading is already a well-known technique of parallel weaving techniques. So in the first row there will be 2 beads, in the second row there will be 3. Starting with the third row and up to the 32rd weave 4 beads in each row. In the 33rd - go for a reduction - 3 beads, in the 34th -2 and so in the 35th - you will have one. The leaf is ready. Fasten the wire. For a spring bouquet, you will need to make 5-7 leaves, depending on the number of colors in your bouquet.
Assembling the flower When all the elements are ready, it's worthTurn to practical video lessons, where they clearly show how to collect snowdrops from beads with their own hands into the finished composition. To do this, the middle of the flower is inserted into the petals, which are joined together, the so-called corolla, and twist the wire. The ends should be connected in the area of the flower cup. After fasten the flower to the stem, which is made of a rigid wire, to hide the wire, wind it with threads, and then use a PVA glue to attach the corrugated paper. Similarly, attaching the core and the flower itself, connect the leaf with the main stalk.
As an alternative, just white snowdrops,You can make an alpine meadow flower. To do this, you just need to add blue or gently blue beads to the weave rows in the weave. The whole scheme of weaving will be analogous to the classical version, only in the places where you took the white beads, using diagrams and photos, in the middle you will type blue.
Here the bouquet is almost ready. At will, you can leave it that way, or put it in a basket or vase.
The base for the ready-made flowers The vase for the snow-covered bead, you can also make it yourself, for this you will need:
- Alabaster - in order to combine the bouquet and the container into one;
- 2 small cans. They are necessary for mixing the mixture, and the second will help to make the shape of the pot.
- Brush, paint;
- PVA glue;
First we make a mixture: Blend alabaster with water to the state of thick sour cream. In the jar, which we took for the form, we lay a plastic bag. Fill in the mixture. While the alabaster is not frozen, we put flowers. To create the effect of a thawed patch, you can make bumps. Wait for the time when the mixture will freeze (in average day) and finish painting the pot. Here already in its design, your fantasy plays the main role - it can be a blue tint, you can add the effect of dark spots of the earth.
Completed work, it remains only to varnish.
The bouquet is ready! Now snowdrops made of beads will please you all year round.
Such variant of weaving snowdrops, you can additionally study in printed literature or with the help of practical video lessons, take a look at the possible options (photo) and make your own.
It was a master class for weaving snowdrops from beads, pleasant work for you!
