Flower weaving

Let's start making hibiscus from beads. The master class will begin with weaving a flower and getting to know one of the beading techniques.

This technique has several names, but the most common are weaving around the axis and circular. We will tell you step by step how to weave a petal for a flower. To do this, measure a piece of wire 0.4 mm thick, approximately 1 m long. Step back from the edge of the segment about 10 cm, fold the wire in half and twist the ends with each other several times, leaving a small loop.

Then on the axis, that is, the short end of the wire, type 11 red beads, on the second end - a little more, so that when the wire is folded along the axis, it protrudes somewhat. Wrap the long end around the axis once and pick up the beads again, again a few more beads. Do the same from the other end, so you get a circle. Make 4 full turns around the axis, throwing the wire like this.

Next, weave cloves to the petals. To do this, we will pass the wire under the upper arc, leaving room for 11 beads to the axis. Let's go back, picking up the beads, do the same on the other side. Let's repeat the action, but not reaching the end by 5 beads.

The petal is ready.

For a flower of these, 5 pieces are needed. To create beautifulweave the right amount of a lush bouquet.

To make the whole composition look like a real one, make some petals without cloves, twist them into a tube - this way you will get small, unopened buds.

In exactly the same way, weave for a flower and leaves, making the axis a little longer, by about 10-15 beads. Leaves are better to make different sizes. For each flower, you will need at least 3-5 of these.

Now let's take the stamens, the hibiscus has bright colors, so we'll take some yellow and red. We measure a piece of wire 0.3 mm about 30 cm. We collect 25 red beads on it, step back from the edge about 10 cm. We make a loop out of 5 beads by simply twisting the two ends together by about 1 cm in length. Stepping back a little from weaving, the same should be done with the next five beads and with the next. Twist all 25 beads in this way, getting 5 red loops.

Put the two ends together and string on 5 red beads. Spread the ends to the sides and dial 20 yellow beads on a long one. Make 4 more loops in the same way as the red ones. Connect the ends again and cast on 2 red ones. Then make 3-4 more loops. In total, three rows of yellow stamens are needed.

Finally, spread the wire again to the sides and dial 20 red beads on each end. Twist them so that you get a flagellum. Twist the ends of the wire tightly together so that the structure does not bloom.

Collecting a flower

Now let's assemble the hibiscus from beads. To do this, put together 5 flower petals, put a weave with a stamen in the center, twist the wire together, placing a thick wire for the stability of the flower, and gently straighten the petals. Take a floss thread or a satin ribbon. From the very beginning of weaving, we will begin to wrap the wire with it. Dropping 3-3.5 cm, attach a few leaves to the weave, twist them with wire and continue wrapping.

Dilute the gypsum in a pot according to the instructions, put the flower inside, fix it with improvised means so that the beaded hibiscus does not fall, while freezing in an unsightly pose.

When the product dries, decorate the white plaster and put it in a prominent place. We are sure that beaded hibiscus flowers will attract the attention of your guests.
