To make toys, you need to dotwo forms of the same pattern. We will make one for the front part, the second we will decorate the rear part of the product. Here you can fantasize and produce decor according to your own ideas. But, the decor should only be on the front. You can decorate with beads, add a rhinestone, make embroidery and complement the work with ribbons. After, the eyelet must be sewn and then sew the two pieces together. In case your idea is to create a three-dimensional toy, you need to leave a small hole format in order to fill it. We stuff the toy and after, sew the product. Toy - wire and rope To create thistoys will need to apply their own imagination, as well as the accumulated ability to handle the wire. With the help of twine and ordinary piece of iron, you can make a version of the original toy. On such a wire you can also hang your ideas of New Year's toys and thus, very quickly and beautifully decorate the version of the New Year's decoration. We will also make paper garlands and add the product with the help of balls of Harmonie toys. We prepare the elements of Scrapbooking for work - a special set of decor that allows you to create voluminous and unique handicrafts. Also we will need decorating elements of beads and buttons, and also adhesive tape on two sides. Updating the toy Perhaps in your house lay the old toy, which has already outlived itself and for the fir-tree does not quite fit. This is not a problem, because such a toy is not difficult to upgrade to a proper state! For decoration it is best to use a plastic toy that does not have the properties that are necessary for a toy. As a decor, we will use beads and cords in different diameters. A small-sized ball should be taken with a thin cord, as well as a string of small beads. For large toys, there are options for large, small and other beads. More original will also look Christmas decorations, which were decorated with special threads, as well as cords at one time. Operating procedure It is necessary to untwist the garland in readydifferent strings. The cord must be taken and then drowned in its end in a ball made of polystyrene using tweezers, or by the ends of scissors of a small size. Then, apply a small amount of sticky material to the entire ball, attach the end of string of beads to the attached cords. Then, gradually cover the entire area with glue a part of the ball, and simultaneously, row by row, you should lay the cord, as well as the beads until the entire surface is filled. We cut off the excesses and drown the endings of the shoelaces with foam. We thread a thread into the needle, and then - we let it into the cord, making a loop to hang the product. In the same way, we can decorate the heart fromfoam. To do this, take a glue gun, in order to fix the thread of the bead on its ribs. Then, you should glue each bead to one side, laying the threads from the edge of the product, to its center. No obligation to make a toy withidentical beads. Involve your imagination, choose different colors and sizes of the product. After we go to the central part of the heart, you need to cut the thread and then - glue it small pieces, cutting them with scissors in the required number of beads. Then, fill one side of the heart in order to then move on to the other. So our special toys are ready! Christmas toys from bulbs Not infrequently old items that have already outlived themselves in the household can come in handy for a house when you need to arrange an apartment. For example, an incandescent bulb can be an ideal option for decorating and the basis of a future toy. However, such a light bulb should be filled with something, or covered with a clear varnish. But, a completely natural question emerges: how to separate the base part from the bulb? How to get the shtengel, where is the internal fittings? The problem can be solved with the help of the usualboiling. The lamp is placed in a special container (a pan, for example) filled with cold water, the product is heated with a slow (!) Fire to a boil in a weak form. Then, the product is still boiled for ten minutes. The plinth will fall off, but it will not fall to the bottom. Postings will hold it. To do this, take side cutters and cut off unnecessary parts after the product has cooled slightly. Next, take a small basin and lay a bar of nazhdachki to fill it with water. After, with the help of light pressure, as well as movements along the circular axis, it is necessary to wipe the sides of the cone, until the bolt does not fall off. For one lamp, this procedure takes no more than 5 minutes. After you fill the bulb with everything you need and carry out the necessary manipulations, the base can be fixed back. This requires superglue. Also, do not forget that the glass is traumatic, so you need to work with the product using household cotton gloves. It is also very important to deal with only incandescent bulbs. Light pipes or new light bulbs (housekeepers) have mercury vapor (!). The amount is small, but it is practically impossible to remove it from the body. That's all! Your light bulb will be ready!
