People, indifferent to the colors, probably not. And if there are any, and then it is, by and large, unhappy people. But the women in this category do not apply, because it is women who, more than anyone else, know how to appreciate and understand the beauty of flowers. And, of course, children come to the delight of all flowers, be it flowers, hand made and painted. Perhaps that is why women love flowers decorate their clothes and hair, and the kids love tinkering various crafts in the form of flowers.
But to make flowers with his hands like not only to children. If satisfied with the possibility of tinkering kids crafts out of paper or clay, adult masters are experimenting with a variety of materials. Anything goes, from the noble silk or leather and finishing just garbage - plastic bottles. And these crafts can turn into elegant brooches, bags or decorate the hair, be part of a panel or a decorative bouquet on a window sill. A children's crafts will bring a lot of fun not only children themselves, but also those who are in a gift like flowers are. Let's look at the available children's crafts in the form of flowers, as well as more complex, but also quite mastered the technique that will make the flowers grown with their own hands craftswomen.
Children enjoy doing needlework. Flowers with your hands to the eighth of March or birthday beloved mom or grandmother - crafts, which successfully replace a bouquet of flowers. And to make children, they also will carry a special power of love. For snowdrops we need:
- green clay,
- some segments of the wire frame to the stems,
- pumpkin seeds,
- green crepe paper for leaves and grass.
By the way, the more advanced the wizard can make these flowers with the help of salt dough.
So. From clay to sculpt the base bouquet: roll off the ball and turn it into a dome-island. Cut the three (four, five) piece of wire stems. Stems wrap paper or coated with clay, and the upper ends of each stem bend the arc. Now attach the curved end of the stem of a small ball of clay, which is also forming a dome with an expanded base. At the base (bottom) makes a small indentation into which the three pumpkin seeds, sticking them in the clay with sharp ends.
Stems with flowers are fixed in the island of plasticine. Corrugated paper cut leaves (number of stems). Leves do lanceolate, elongated and gently stretch the edges, forming a light wave. Attach leaves to the stalks, or just stick them in plasticine basis. To make a "grass", a strip of crepe paper cut into one long side fringe and curly it. Wrap grass green island with snowdrops. Our spring primroses ready!
Flowers can be made with your own hands from the remnants of yarn. By the way, the children really like tinkering crafts that use yarn or thread. Make dandelions can of yellow, lemon or white yarn and thread of a different color will be no less impressive to look at these-flowered pompon. Yes, yes, we will do them because of pompons. To make these flowers, you need to prepare the following materials and tools:
- soft wool or wool blend yarn
- dry twigs,
- scissors and a pencil.
First, make patterns for the pompons. From cardboard cut out two circles of the same diameter. In the center of each circle cut out a circular hole to get the ring. Rings incised by making a cut from the outer to the inner circumference. The value determines the width of the ring pompoms, which will be equal to its radius. Fold rings pile, take the thread and begin winding it rings, the thread passing through the incision, which leaves free of threads and cut center. Wrap the ring tight enough, take the scissors and sticks it between the rings.
Now the most difficult. Carefully cut the winding fingers while holding the thread in the middle of the ring. Further, without disconnecting the cardboard ring slips between a thread and a good contract the two halves of the winding yarn. Tie a knot the thread and remove the ring. Now we have to take the final step - fluff and pompom trim protruding strings. The final stage of the manufacture of dandelions - gluing pompoms to the twigs.
Crafts in the form of delicate bouquets and exquisite floral arrangements can vary. With my own hands can produce flowers for topiary or as it is called, the tree of happiness. And if you do not want to do a tree, you can make balloon flower. It is extraordinarily beautiful! A similar crafts not only develop a sense of beauty, but also to decorate the interior of your home or become a nice complement to the strict office environment. For such crafts will need:
- colorful crepe paper;
- PVA glue
- ball of yarn,
- hand cream,
- sewing thread.
First we need to make a ball of thread, which will be framed. Inflate the balloon to the correct size and daubed his hand cream (to yarn is not stuck to the surface of the ball). We drop the ball of yarn in a bucket of glue. Now, pulling the tip of the coil winding start soaked in glue thread balloon. When the gossamer of threads would be thick enough to hold the shape, hung out to dry ball. After the thread is completely dry and harden, burst a balloon and gently remove it from the thread a skeleton.
Getting manufacturing colors. For this corrugated paper cut into strips the length and width of twenty-two centimeters. At the same time make sure that the "grain" of corrugated paper arranged vertically (perpendicular to the long side). Now every stripes slightly stretch a long way, making it wavy. Next, collect strip into an accordion and twisting the other (not extended) region. Fix the edge of the thread or wire, pushim flower and attach it to a ball of thread. These roses corrugated paper tightly cover the entire surface of the carcass. To flower ball looked neater, flowers have staggered. Ready put the ball into an empty flower pot and put it on the windowsill. Or attach to the ball beautiful ribbon or braid and hung him from the ceiling or window.
There are many techniques you can use to make artificial flowers. And if the adult children's crafts seem too simple and even primitive, try, for example, such a technique as tsumami kanzashi. It's almost origami only silk. Small squares of silk fabric folded in a special way and collect the flowers are sharp or rounded petals.
No less interesting technique called quilling. Twisted spiral strips in white or colored paper are transformed into extraordinarily beautiful delicate flowers. By the way, this technique made not only flowers, but also, for example, Christmas snowflakes or even the whole story panels. Fabric flowers can be the easiest way to cut from organza or silk petals and blank singeing them over a flame. And you can get a special tool (gurgling) and do the traditional floral bouquets from podkrahmalennyh tissues.
Chic, almost indistinguishable from the living flowers from a cold molded porcelain, which is prepared in a special way, and the flowers are painted by hand. And flowers knit, made from plastic bottles, weave beads, Valya wool, master of felt and leather. In short, almost any needlework technique can be adapted for this purpose. So if you have friends with some needlework or just decided to make the flowers with your hands, be sure to translate their ideas into reality. The main thing - to start. Be bold, be sure you will succeed!
