An elegant decoration for the Christmas tree
On the eve of the New Year really want to do something with their hands to decoration the house for the holiday. Admiring the beautiful beads to the Christmas tree on the Internet, I really wanted to do something similar, and herself. Actually, to be honest, I was afraid that it will not work, because the beads from my work is quite far and the skill of my work with him is very low. My “maximum” – a weaving of “cross” 🙂 However, still remembering their children, girlish enthusiasm Beaded Baubles, I still seem to cope with the task, and the very process of going to share with you today.
I would also like to note that this lesson can try again with the children (not very small, of course), because it’s pretty simple, but the process has been very exciting. I, at least enough of the basics of beading which I suffered at the age of 10-12 years 🙂
So, we need a bulb-base, which will braid, beads, acrylic bit, if desired, a thin needle and thread (fishing line). As a basis convenient (and beautiful) use any New Year’s ball, discreet design – solid color matte or glossy, may be covered with glitter. You can also use foam, papier-mache or wooden billets for creativity.
I have taken here is unpretentious Chinese child – the foam base, carefully pasted over the foam, plus a little bit of glitter 🙂 foam tended to fall off from the outside, with a positive view of the world, of course, you can take these things for the snow, but I took them for trash, and my cats could not afford to refuse the pleasure to devour them 🙂
So, not really wishing I otskrebla it all and left only the foundation.
In flakonchike – acrylic paint, I decided to paint the ball before work. It could be a little more poshkurit him, but the thought came to my inexperienced head too late 🙂 Riding Hood-mount shoot yet.
I flaunt slight trimming posudomoynoy sponge. Right here is to keep the ball and painted with abandon until all the fingers dyed 🙂
Then I figured to take the wooden skewers, spread on the ball and make it very convenient for coloring lollipop.
We send our red Mars craters foam to dry and proceed to weaving clothes for him. I took the remnants of beads, which was used in the decorationnotorious ballet.
We print on a thread beads.
We form the second series of “cross” or something something like this is called, I’m not sure exactly, passing the needle through every second small bead 🙂
Finishing the second row.
And we go to the third.
Thus, row by row, weave a net:
Scourge, Scourge, do not stop.
Ball had already dry, and can be sure to take it sometimes, “fitting”.
When the grid will be of sufficient size to wrap the ball, execute the last row, passing small beads.
Closes the mesh in the ring and sew neatly sostykovyvaya braided pattern.
We put on the ball:
And tightens the ring by inserting 1-2 beads to form the desired diameter.
That something like that happens:
The lower part of the ball you can just pull the beads without additional:
I’m a little hurried and closed bottom clearance ringlet beads. This can be done if it is the final touch to the decoration of the lower part. I decided then to add fringe and it turned out that because of this fringe beads proved to not be seen. So if you do as I do, the bead can not weave in this step.
Go back upstairs. Scourge small ring. The number of beads in it should match the number of light pink beads in the upper row of braids ball, I have them 17.
We put a ring on the mount rope and gradually begin to combine it with the top row of beads braiding.
Gradually and slowly ..
The locking ring. The upper part of the ball is ready.
Again back down and, if desired, begin to weave fringe. We collect the right amount of thread on the beads.
The bottom I put a large and heavy glass bead to a nice fringe hung later. Go back upstairs and go to the next thread fringe.
So we perform a full circle. Central beads, as I said, it was not visible. Anyway. I’ll know that it’s there 🙂
When all is finished, you can tie a ribbon on the top of the bulb and enjoy 🙂 Thank you!
