What are your favorite spring flowers? Lily of the valley - a flower so small, and what a fragrant, its smell can turn the head. On the eve of spring, you want something green, fragrant, so "Lily" is what you need.
This bright spring decor will delight you not only in the spring, but throughout the year. The small buds of the lily of the valley will remind you of the warm May, so let's take a quick look at the master class on lily of the valley beads. With great pleasure we will share with you several ways of weaving lilies of the valley, as well as teach you how to weave a beautiful spring Easter egg.
Method one: bead lily of the valley
These lilies of the beads for beginners will be the simplest, since in this method you do not need to weave a flower, just enough beads to depict a small bud.So, to create a small bouquet we need:
- white or pearl beads;
- beads of different sizes of the corresponding color;
- green beads for foliage;
- thin light wire;
- green thread or paper;
- as well as a basket and other materials for decoration.
Weaving begins with the creation of lily flowers. Before doing beads, cut the wire into pieces of 15 cm. The number depends on how lush you want to get a bouquet. On one branch with buds will need an average of 7 pieces.
Thread 10 beads to the length of wire, bring them to the middle, stretch one end of the wire through five opposite beads and firmly tighten, you should have a loop with the ends of the wire going out in different directions.
It is necessary to tighten the beads tightly so that the wire is almost invisible. Since we use light beads, it is better to use light wire, it will not be so noticeable on white buds.
Put the two ends of the wire together and pass the beads into them, pulling them as close as possible to the beaded ring.
On the double folded end, dial 8 green beads and move them tightly to the bead.Lock the beads on the last green bead, pushing one end into it and pulling tight.
So you need to create a few buds. It is great if you find beads of different sizes, so our lily of the bead will be even more realistic.
When you wove a sufficient number of buds, you can safely proceed to the formation of branches. For this we need a piece of wire, to the end of which you need to attach the smallest bud. Wind the end of the wire from the bud on this wire tightly and firmly.
Pull back a little, in the same way, lock the next bud. From the smaller to the larger attach small flowers to the branch. In total there should be 7 of them. Several branches can be made with six.
The main rule in the formation of branches is that all the buds are directed in one direction.
After all the buds are connected in a twig, the wire must be masked with green thread, corrugated green paper or tapes.
Sheet - the largest part in the whole composition. We need those from three, depending on the volume of your bouquet. Let's weave a sheet here according to this scheme.
Take a wire with a length of 20 cm, it will serve as the axis for the leaf. It is necessary to wear 7-8 beads on it, move them to the center. Cut a piece of wire several times longer and type a few more beads, for example, by 2. Fix the end of the wire at the bottom of the axis, making 3-4 turns. Put the gathered beads down to the place of fastening, and fix the free end near the bead that completes the axis. Type the same amount of beads and secure the next row at the bottom. So you get the arc. This method of weaving is called "arc", and it is the easiest to weave a leaf for a lily of the bead, the scheme is the easiest.
In the next row, add a few more beads, 2–3, and fasten in the same way. Weave, until the size of the leaf does not seem to you sufficient, corresponding to the branch with buds.
It is also desirable to wrap the leaflet with a thread, disguising both the wire and the rough turns on it.
It remains only to collect our wonderful composition. Let's take a pot, basket or small vase to place a bunch.
See how cute the lily of the valley looks in the pot. Let's try this way to arrange our bouquet.
At the bottom of the pot you need to put a piece of foam or plasticine, which will help to resist the bouquet. Piercing the material, arrange your leaves and twigs. Not deeply stick them in, because we still need to pour stones on top or lay out green sisal, which will very accurately replace the grass in this composition.
The second method of weaving bud
This is a simple and very cute way to weave a flower, for it you only need beads of white and yellow flowers, and thin wire of 0.2 mm.
For each flower, we need 6 pieces of wire of 30 centimeters. At the first segment you need to dial 13 beads and place them in the center. Bend the wire with beads into a loop and twist the ends together at its base. This is one petal.
Next, take another piece and stretch it through the first five beads on one side. Putting the segment in half, dial the top 8 beads. Twist this piece of wire near the base of the loop, so you get 2 petals. Repeat this action three more times.
The sixth piece of wire - fastening. Similarly, pull the wire through the first five beads,type three beads on the end and stretch it through the 5 extreme loops on the left side of the weave. Stretching the ends and also twisting the wire, you get a small neat bud. But do not rush to twist together all the ends of the wire, we will make a core of yellow beads.
We need a piece of wire 20 cm, it is necessary to dial 2 yellow beads and place it in the middle of the segment. Holding the right bead in the center, pull the right end of the wire through the left bead in the opposite direction. Tighten the wire, so you have a little stamen. At one end of the wire it is necessary to make the same stamen. After collecting 2 beads, in the opposite direction, pull the wire through the first bead. Tighten the wire more tightly, tightly pressing the two stamens together. At the second end make the exact same stamen and twist the wire together, lifting the stamens up. Push it into the center of the petals and proceed to weave the next flower.
On one branch you need 7 flowers. Here is such a wonderful lily of the bead.
The second method of weaving a piece of paper
No less a simple way of weaving a leaf,but unlike the first, it will allow narrowing or expanding the sheet in the right places. This method is called parallel. For one leaf, you need 2 meters of wire and green beads. Below we describe the scheme for a wide oblong sheet, but for now, having measured 2 m of wire, we recall how to weave from beads by a parallel method.
For the first row of the leaflet, we will need 1 bead, and for the second - 2, so to begin our leaflet, we collect three beads and place them in the center. One, extreme, hold with a finger, and through two stretch the opposite piece of wire from the extreme beads. Tightening, we get two rows.
The next row of leaflets - 3 beads. At one end of the wire we collect three beads, stretch the other way, tighten and straighten.
Here is a scheme of a wide leaf of lily of the valley:
- 1-19 rows correspond to the row number, that is, 1 row - one bead, 5 row - five beads;
- 20-22 p. - 20 beads;
- 23-26 p. - 19 beads;
- 27-29 p. - 18 beads.
Starting from the 30th, reduce one bead in each row until 2 beads remain. The two ends of the wire are twisted together and masked with a thread. The sheet is ready.
