No lady will refuse to accept as a gift a magnificent set of beaded jewelry, an evening clutch or a mobile phone case. And how good are the beaded embroideries! But such things are not only pleasant to receive. Beadwork, made for yourself with passion and love, will be no less dear to you. And of course, they will serve as an excellent gift for a close friend or relative.

It is customary to give beadwork for the main holidays. Easter is a bright family celebration, during which the closest and dearest people gather together. Let's make together with you a symbol of Easter - an egg from beads!



We will need:

- white transparent beads 6;

- matte red beads;

- nylon thread;

- wooden egg blank;

- scissors;

- needles for beads.

We start by making a belt, which is woven separately from the egg, and then sewn right on the egg. We measure the girth of the egg blank in the widest place and determine the width of the girdle.

Fix the last bead by making a stop bead out of it, tying the thread in a knot. Then we make a belt using the technique of mosaic weaving according to the patterns. It is necessary to weave the belt until it tightly wraps around the egg. Then we wrap the workpiece to gradually get an egg from beads. It is better to sew the belt right on the workpiece itself. The number of beads on the right and left should be the same. We sew them together in pairs, pulling the belt tightly. Next, we work directly on the egg. Weave the bottom part, and then the top. After that, turn the egg over and attach the next row. The very last row will not be very even, but this is normal. It looks a bit sticking out in a zigzag pattern.

Everything will be fixed. On the reverse side, we pass along it with a snake in the opposite direction. Continuing the work, we can notice that the previous row of beads sits on the egg somehow not very tightly. We begin to reduce the next row. Instead of two beads, we sew only one.

As this row flattens out, as we snake through the egg inin the opposite direction, it will be seen whether we did everything right. Whether the beads fell into place beautifully, whether there are holes. If gaps nevertheless formed, then you can fix this by adding an additional bead to this place and choosing the right size.

We start to weave the pattern through 5-6 rows from the girdle. We continue to braid the egg according to the same principle, gradually reducing the beads more and more and reducing it to nothing. Here the thread can be fastened and cut. And then fasten again on top. You can do it differently by passing the thread through the rows up and braiding the egg until its entire surface is covered with beads. After that, we collect more red beads on the thread and weave a beaded thread about 25-30 cm long. Sew the ends of the threads on the sides of the egg, starting from the top. And decorate the egg by tying a bow at the top.

Beaded Easter egg is ready!
