Flowers - perhaps the most pleasant and bright gift inAny time of the year. Especially if these flowers do not fade in a few days and are made by themselves! With the help of our master class we suggest you learn how to weave beaded terry and ordinary violets. Beading is a fascinating and simple activity and will be able even for beginners, even if you have never tried beadwork before.
For weaving we will need:
- Green beads - about 50 grams - for petals;
- Beads of white, purple, pink or otherColor, depending on what color you want to weave the violets. To simulate terry violets, a combination of two shades of the same color (darker and lighter) is suitable;
- Wire thickness 0.3 mm;
- Floristic ribbon or mulina of green color (it is better to tape or thread
- insulating tape;
- Materials for decoration.
So, let's get started!
Beginners need to know that there are twoThe main way of weaving flowers from beads: parallel weaving and French weaving (weaving with arcs). Violets result in different. We suggest you choose a favorite method or combine flowers in a bouquet, woven in different techniques!
Terry violet in French weaving technique
Petals Take 7 beads of purple orPink color (or any other, depending on the color scheme of the bouquet). Beads need to be strung on a wire about 40-50 cm long. Beads should be placed so that it is 9-10 cm from one end of the wire. Opposite - the far end of the wire will be working at the same time. Make a loop - beads form a ring, which will become the basis of the first petal.
On the remaining loose end string beadsFor the second ring. The number of beads count depending on the size of the first ring - the second ring should lie flat, without tension. The long part of the workpiece with beads wrap around the first ring and twist with a short ring - the petal will increase on the row, as shown in the photo:
Similarly, run the third row of petalsViolets of beads. You will get a round billet, which in itself is already very similar to the petal of a flower! But in order to make it a violet violet, you need to give the petal a finished look. To do this, on the long end of the wire string 5 beads in this way: purple-three white - purple. The wire must be passed between the second and third beads from the place where the wire is taken out. At the same time, the wire must be secured in such a way that a loop is produced. This loop - the beginning of "fringe" on the edge of our terry violets. After the first loop is ready, we "tie" the entire billet with the same stitches in a circle until we return to the exit point of the short end of the wire.
The ends of the wire must be twisted along the entire length. It turned out the harvesting of one petal. In order to get one violet from the beads, repeat steps 1-4 of our master class four more times. In total there should be 5 blanks, as in the photo:
We do a stamen. To do this, for a short pieceWire (about 20 cm) you need to thread 4 beads. Then the short tip of the wire is passed through the bead so that a loop is formed and tightened. Now for the long tip we type 4 beads and pass through the initial bead before the loop is formed and also tighten. In the same way do the following 2 loops. As a result, we get 4 loops and twist their wires with each other. On the combined ends we type beads and move them higher to the loops.
We form the flower The scheme of the assembly of the stairs is as follows:
- We add the petals "pile";
- We twist the wires from all the petals together;
- Straighten the petals like a fan, so that the flower looks like a violet;
- Bend the stem perpendicularly, this will be the stem of the flower;
- vdevaem the middle lobe woven preform stamens and twist their delays;
- Stalk of violets tightly wrapped in a floss or floral tape.
One violet of beads is over! If you did everything according to the instructions, it should work out just like in the photo:
Now you need to make a few more colors, the amount will depend on the size of the bouquet.
Put the finished workpieces aside. That the bouquet was more similar to the present, it is necessary to weave
Fleece leaves In order to weave a leaf,Take a piece of wire about half a meter long or slightly longer. On the axis of the wire you need to thread 12 beads and make five turns around it. So we get the leaves of medium size.
Now let's start making leavesbigger size. From the wire, about 95 cm long, it is necessary to make a loop and on its axis to collect beads in an amount of 14 pieces. Now we are making six turns and, as a result, we get a leaf larger than the previous one.
Repeat the previous steps of our master class andMake enough leaves to surround them with flowers in a bouquet. The exact number of leaves depends on the size of the bouquet and your desire. For our bouquet we need medium-sized leaves in the quantity of 7 pieces and a large size - 4 pieces. You can view the finished blanks in the photo.
Cuttings of leaves and petals must be tightly wrapped in a floss, so that the finished bouquet looks neat.
Assembling the flower Our master class is coming to an end and now we have only to collect and arrange the bouquet. It is not difficult to assemble it: it is enough to tightly interlace the "cuttings" of flowers and leaves.
You can arrange the composition in various ways. For example, here are a few ideas for designing compositions of ready terry violets from beads:
Violets made of beads in a potIdeas you will need a small plastic flower pot in the size of a bouquet and alabaster from a building store. The flower pot must be filled with crumpled paper, pour the diluted alabaster, and then place the cuttings of the collected bouquet in it. The first few minutes of flowers must be maintained in the correct position with your hand, then the alabaster will solidify. To unattractive "soil" subsequently did not look through, it can be disguised. For example, you can sprinkle alabaster on top of the remains of beads of dark shades or small stones.
Violet bouquet The composition can be decorated withAid corrugated paper, sisal and floral tape. A dull pot can be decoded at your discretion from any available materials. All this can be bought in a specialized store. There are also special coasters, in which the finished bouquet can be nicely placed. Do not be shy to show imagination in decorating a bouquet! Such a non-moving composition of terry violets will be a perfect gift for any occasion.
Beading jewelry in the form of violets
Ring If you do not have enough patience toWeave an entire bouquet, you will be enough for one flower to make a unique accessory. To make it you will need one small violet (the size of the flower can be increased or decreased if you change the number of beads in the first row of the petal) and the base under the ring - these are sold in some needlework shops, as well as on the Internet. Carefully cut the line on the workpiece. Press a few drops of the universal glue onto the flat part of the base and gently glue the flower to the ring. Allow the product to dry and the ring can be worn!
Pendant If you are fascinated with beadwork, tryMake a violet in the technique of parallel weaving, which can become an interesting basis for the pendant. From French it differs in that all the beads are connected in series, in rows.
For weaving this pendant - violets you will need:
- thin wire;
- Beads of pink and purple flowers (or two other matching colors of your choice);
- Decorative cord for jewelry in a suitable color scheme;
- Base under the pendant.
As in the weaving of terry violets from beads,Each petal of the pendant is executed separately. Beading in parallel technique is very suitable for beginner needlewomen. In our version, the creation of violet petals will occur according to the following scheme:
- The first row: on the wire you need to thread 5 beads;
- second row: Add one more bead to one end of the wire, and then pass the second end through them, moving towards the first, tighten the wire. The weaving of further rows is performed in a similar technique. The beads are threaded on the first end of the wire, and the second is passed to meet it, tighten the row;
- Third row: 9 beads;
- The fourth and fifth rows: 10 beads;
- Sixth row: 8 beads;
- Seventh row: 6 beads;
- Eighth row: four beads;
- The ninth row: two beads.
Do not cut the wire, put the workpiece inSide. Similarly, perform the remaining four petals. Petals can be made the same or slightly different in shape, for this you need to change the number of beads in the rows.
Middle of the flower make an example of weavingPetals, as in the previous master class. To do this, thread 7 beads on the wire and twist a small loop. Next, on one end of the wire, thread another 15 beads and make one more ring over the first, twist the ends and make the third turn of the wire, not forgetting to increase the number of beads for the third circle. For the stamens, twist 4 beads separately. For assembly, twist the cuttings of the petals between each other around the stamens, tighten them tightly, cut the remains of the cuttings.
Apply the flower to the base under the pendant with glue, you can also thread the details with threads or a fishing line for additional fastening. An unusual pendant is ready!
