DIY Home Decor – How to Make Flowers of Beads in a Basket !
If you really want to decorate the house with your own hands, but you can not beat a beaded tree, then the master class with a photo – the flowers from beads in a basket with their own hands will be very suitable for this purpose. The main thing is that this does not require much time, effort and special skill.
We need: beads of three colors (I have a mixture of pink, a mixture of blue and green), copper wire, nippers, pliers, foil, building plaster or alabaster and a small basket (left over from the gift).
We string our beads onto the wire .
We retreat from the tip of the wire 5-7 cm. Count off the 10 beads and begin to twist the first leaf.
We form the loop.
Twist the wire 5-6 times thus making a leg of our leaf.
Stepping back about 1-1.5 cm, we begin to make the next leaf in the same way starting with the formation of the loop, and then twisting the wire to form a leg.
I have twigs of 9 leaves, so every 5th becomes central. After it we continue to make the leaves on the other side of our branch.
Gradually we are getting to the end of our bead twig.
When all the leaves are twisted, you can proceed to the assembly of the branch.
Now we twist between both sides of our leaves forming the middle part of the stem.
The whole branch is ready. You can cut it off from the main wire.
With green beads took me on a basket of 16 pieces.
In this way we make twigs from other colors of beads . Now you can compose how our twigs are assembled. To each green twig we add 3 pieces of colored. In total, we need 24 branches of pink and 24 branches of blue.
The legs of our twigs are twisted together.
Now we are preparing the gypsum base. We cover our basket with foil. So we will not spoil our basket and achieve an exact hit in the size.
How to Make Flowers of Beads in a Basket
We spread the gypsum and pour it into the mold. Immediately take our twigs with beads and plunge their legs into a not yet frozen mass.
Let’s wait until the gypsum is completely frozen. Then carefully remove the gypsum base together with the foil from the basket.
Carefully release the base from the foil. Usually, the foil is easily separated from the gypsum, but it can also stick, do not be afraid of it, just pull it harder and the foil will free.
The podstavochka turns out exactly according to the size of our basket.
Now you can put the beaded bouquet back into the basket without the foil.
If you have coped with everything without difficulty, then you can try to make a bead tree . After all, you have already learned how to make twigs, and this is the most important thing. Good luck and new ideas.
