- The dense felt of two shades, which are combined with each other (1st color - two leaves, 2nd color - one sheet);
- base (a tightly stranded ball with a diameter of twelve centimeters);
- trunk for the product;
- rhinestones or beads (for decoration);
- Satin ribbons of suitable color or shades;
- capacity (bowl, bowl, and so on);
- glue gun.
To begin with, you need to make a barrel and do a pot for topiary. To do this, we take wooden skewers and connect them together. For the connection we will use a glue gun. Gypsum spread a cool water, so that in the endthe mass of a thick sour cream has turned out. Pour the diluted gypsum into a prepared container and place there our previously made barrel. Keep it needed until the gypsum is solidified, and the barrel is not securely fixed. The next step is forming a ball. You can make a basis from any material, but it's the easiest, that is, make a ball out of newspapers. For this it is necessary to crush the newspapers in a com and tightly twist it with a thread. We need to wrap the ball with a dense felt in such a way that its base does not appear translucent. Then the resulting part is attached to the trunk, using a hot glue for this. The trunk is recommended to decorate with satintape, again, fix it with glue. Now let's move on to the decor of the flowerpot. In this case, our capacity is decorated with a jigut rope. You can use any other dense yarn, as well as, additional decor elements, in particular beads or pebbles. It all depends on what kind of decor you want to make. Cut a small circle of felt and cover it with gypsum. So the product will look much more attractive. For some time we postpone the workpiece. We need to cut flowers out of felt. I warn you, you need a lot of flowers. Approximately, somewhere, not less than thirty pieces. Naturally, it all depends on the size of the ball and the size of the flowers. In order to be as convenient as possible, prepare templates of small and large colors, which can be made from cardboard or paper of good density. Then, with their help, you will cut out the details already from the felt. Cut the felt into small squares, then carefully cut out the flowers. After the required number of colors are ready, fill them with a ball. The main thing is that there are no large distances between the flowers. At a time when the foundation is completefilled, proceed to, directly, the decor of our product. It can be different elements. For example, rhinestones, beads, beads, patches, ribbons, etc. Everything, in general, depends on you, your preferences and imagination.
