Cornflowers from beads, wildflowers with their own hands (video)
What will it take to work
To make beadwork did not disappoint and allIt turned out, you need to carefully prepare for work. First of all, you need to acquire a minimum of tools and accessories for this type of needlework. This special cutter, organizer for beads and a piece of felt or cloth. You can, of course, use and improvised tools, but this will somewhat complicate the process of weaving with beads.
The scheme of weaving cornflower petals from beads In order to make a cornflower from beads on its own, the following materials will be required:
- 10-15 grams of blue or blue beads for flowers;
- 5-10 grams of green beads for petals and leaves;
- 2-3 grams of dark gray or black beads for stamens;
- Wire of different colors;
- Nylon threads for winding;
- acrylic lacquer;
- Glue "Moment Crystal".
Stamens for cornflower from beads can also beMake a glass beaker 3-4 cm long. This option will simplify the work a little. Also, instead of nylon threads, you can use a green floral tape. To make the finished product elegant, it is desirable to use a colored thin wire: blue for flowers, white for stamens and green for leaves and petals.
Master-class of weaving cornflowers from beads
To make it more understandable how to weave cornflowers fromBeads, the work can be conditionally divided into several stages. This is especially true for beginners in this form of needlework. In addition, it is possible, after completing one stage of the weaving, to continue the next day. It is very convenient, when there is no possibility to allocate a lot of time for making flowers. Moreover, the same technique of parallel weaving is used.
Making a flowerMaking petals for a flower. Therefore, you need to take blue or blue Czech beads № 11 and a piece of wire of the same color, 25-30 cm in length. In total, you need to perform 7 such petals. Despite the fact that it is easy to do, some needlewomen prefer to use the weaving schemes for this part. Although step-by-step photos are often replaced completely.
On the wire, dial 3 beads and place inCenter. Then one end in the opposite direction to stretch through 2 outer beads. So, you should get a triangle. To the left and to the right of it to make one more of the same. Each time, the wire must be tightened.
Then dial 8 beads from one side. Then, in the opposite direction, pass the other end of the wire and tighten. To the resulting series, tightly press the previously executed triangles. Thus, perform the entire petal, reducing with each step one bead. In the last row there should be 2 pieces in 6 petals and 1 piece in the 7th petal.
At the next stage, the master class assumesFlower assembly. To do this, you need 6 more beads. For this we take the last finished petal and any other. We stretch the end of the wire one to the last bead, and the seventh - to the first, using a bead and so on. As a result, you should get a bowl of a flower. Hands give it shape, straightening in the right direction petals. Wire the wire from the bottom in a bundle.
Stamens No flower can do without stamens. Cornflower beads are no exception. Each master class offers its own variant. The needle technique of weaving is mainly used. It is she who conveys the natural beauty of the flower.
On a white wire 30 cm long, dial oneDark gray or transparent beads. Fold it in half and collect 5 more beads of black color (they can be replaced by 1 bugle). Then next to type exactly the same stamen. At the end make a twist of wire length of about 1 cm. In total, you need to make 7 of these stamens, making after the 2.4 and 6th loop twist. Give them the shape they need and wrap all the twists together with the remaining end of the wire.
To the middle of the flower turned out more magnificent,You can perform 15 more stamens as follows. On the wire, dial one bead and make a twist length of just over 1 cm. So, make the remaining 14 stamens. The resulting fan wrap the central part and wrap the free end around the base. On this, the beadwork of the stamens is completed.
Weaving the leaves Perhaps, this is the simplest stage,Which can easily be performed without any scheme or even a photo. For the production of 3 sheets, you need the same number of pieces of green wire. Two are 50 cm long and one is 40 cm.
Take any of the pieces and place in the middleOne bead. Next, using the technique of parallel weaving, execute 2 rows consisting of 2 pieces and 20-25 rows of 3. There should be about 5 cm of free wire. At the end, execute 2 more rows: first from 2 beads, and then from one. Lock the rest.
So, make 2 more leaves. This concludes the master class on making cornflower pieces. Now it remains to collect everything, to give the flower a shape and, of course, to find a suitable vase for him.
Assembling a cornflower
In order for the flower to keep its shape well,Need a solid foundation. For this purpose, take a thicker wire. It is desirable to sharpen the end, so that it is easier to pass it to the center of the flower. This completes the preparation.
Middle with stamens connect with flowerCornflower. Then attach the prepared thick wire, bending the remaining blue segments. Take a nylon thread and tightly wrap all the ends. As soon as everything is covered, press the previously cleaned pieces and perform another winding with threads.
Below the stem, without stopping the winding, arrange3 previously made sheets: first small, and then two large ones. At the very bottom, bend back about 1 cm of the stem and wrap the tip with threads. Lubricate it with glue and let it dry. Then, for strength and shine, double coat the entire stem with acrylic lacquer. Dry it. This concludes the master class on making cornflower beads.
To make it more visible, you canWatch the video tutorial at the end of this article. Each stage of weaving with beads is shown in great detail here. Although you can perform cornflowers even without step-by-step photos, it's so simple.
It is worth noting that one flower in the vase will beLook very lonely and unnatural. You can make a whole bouquet of wild flowers from beads on the basis of this master class with video. For example, you can make buds of 3 petals, connecting them in the second or fifth row. They will be closed or semi-closed. In the latter case, you can still make 2 stamens. Half-open flower is performed in the same way as large, but with fewer stamens.
And, obviously, every cornflower can be performedFrom different shades of blue beads, as well as complement the bouquet with any other colors from your collection. Such a bouquet will only have to choose a suitable vase.
