Making souvenirs gives double joy to the one who creates beauty with his own hands and to the one who receives this souvenir as a gift. Of course, it’s not so easy to create something really worthwhile, but perseverance, the ability to notice the beautiful and patience work wonders. Such a whimsical material, like beads, can be used in different ways, for example, to create beaded trees.
Today we will try to make a berry tree, for which we will need the following: - two kinds of beads: 11 number of red or cherry color for berries and 8 number of green color for leaves; - wire No. 0.3; - small pliers-pliers; - floral tape of green or brown color; - building plaster and water; - a vase or an ashtray in which the tree will grow, - glue PVA and toilet paper to create a bark of a tree, toothpick or a needle for drawing a bark - paints (acrylic, gouache), brush, clear lacquer. Let's begin with cutting the nippers about twenty pieces of wire up to 30 cm in length.
Add each wire in half and recruit 3-4 pieces. red beads.
Twist so that a loop of beads and wire is formed.
We collect more beads and make two or three loops, twist them together and get a bunch.
Now we collect six-eight beads of green color and make leaves in the same way. But without twisting the loops together. There should be five-six leaves on a branch.
We make three branches and we wind them into one big branch.
In the same way, we make three or five branches, if desired, we wrap each tape with teip tape.
We twist the resulting branches into a tree, make the trunk thicker,wrapping tape-tape.
Preparing a plaster mix, dilute the plaster with water in an unnecessary jar and pour it into a prepared vase. Consistency of gypsum as a very thick sour cream.
Install the tree in a vase, bolster it from several sides so that the tree does not fall while the plaster congeals.
We decorate the surface of the gypsum with the remnants of beads. After the gypsum is frozen, take the PVA glue and toilet paper and small strips of paper well moistened with glue, wind the branches and trunk of the tree, straightening and drawing the bark with a toothpick.
We put the tree in a warm place for five to six hours, and then paint the bark with colors.
