Beaded flower is a great holiday gift option. Any fresh flowers are beautiful and delightful. Absolutely everyone carries their bewitching aura and beauty. Probably, many people like lilacs, roses, daisies, callas or other flowers. However, they are all short lived. If an event or a certain person is relevant to you, we advise you to make a gift that keeps the memory of you for a longer time.
Callas are graceful and very beautiful flowers. But, like other plants, calla lilies quickly wither. In this article, we propose to study in detail and learn how to properly weave calla beads.
The lesson is quite simple and exciting. Your attention is invited to several options for creating callas from beads. Subsequently, this will help in the formation of an original and beautiful bouquet.
Let's consider for clarity the specifics of weaving flowers in the proposed master class (MK) of calla lilies from pink beads. Let's get to work.
Materials and tools
Before you start weaving callas, you will need to prepare the followingmaterials:
- pink beads;
- pale pink beads and glass beads;
- brown beads;
- silver wire - 0.3 mm;
- wire 1 mm in diameter;
- green threads and floral tape.
Pale pink beaded callas: master class
What should I prepare for? You have to spend a little time and create a truly luxurious flower, which is a beaded calla. The weaving pattern is quite simple and will help you understand this meticulous process. The basis is the use of the French method of beading.
The procedure is as follows:
- To create the first row, string in the following order: seven pink beads, one soft pink bugle and nine pale pink beads.
- In further weaving, you will need to increase the row of pink beads and decrease the row of pale pink.
- Change the number of stringed beads at your discretion in such a way that the intervals in the rows are minimal. A similar calla petal is formed from three tiers of beads, which are located in the central row.
- Next comes six tiers - two on each side. The final row, which is located at the base of the petal, contains one tier. It consists of pink beads.
- The next side of the petal is the same as the first.
Form a calla bud
- After the formation of the petal is completed, it will be neededsew on to fix a more stable shape. Then you should insert a stamen into the core of the calla and securely attach the flower to the wire rod.
- After that, wrap it with floral tape. The tape can be replaced with green threads soaked in glue. It is necessary to wrap the barrel carefully.
- To form a stamen, you will need to string twenty-seven brown beads. Fold the wire with beads in half and twist together. As a result, you will get full-fledged callas from beads.
To make beaded calla leaves, you will need to prepare some materials:
- green beads;
- wire to match the color of the beads (0.3 mm);
- wire with a diameter of one millimeter;
- green floral ribbon.
Beaded callas have elongated leaves. Accordingly, you will need to use the technique of parallel weaving. Essentially, one sheet consists of two halves sewn together.
Please note that the bottom three rows of your paper do not need to be stitched together. This is done in such a way that in the end your bead sheet reflects the living original as much as possible.
After that, you need to take a rod with a diameter of one millimeter and wrap it with green tape. The resulting workpiece must be attached to the back of the sheet using a green wire. In a similar way, make two more similar leaves.
Beaded callas will findelegance and aesthetics, if placed, for example, in a beautiful vase. If desired, you can make a plaster mixture and fix your flower in a flowerpot.
White beaded callas: second version
To form another version of the flower arrangement you will need:
- transparent or light beads;
- yellow beads;
- silver or green wires with a diameter of 0.3 mm;
Progress and some recommendations
- Start with beaded calla petals. To do this, you will need to prepare a piece of wire eighty centimeters long. Then make a small loop at its end. Next, you need to string three centimeters of white beads. Make another extra top loop.
- After that, you should turn the weave over and string white beads on the working end of the wire. Turn over the original row.
- Next, you need to turn your weave over again and string the same number of beads. Make the next turn around the axis.
- Let's move on to creating the sides of the petal.
To do this, you need to string white beads on the working end of the wire and fix it. At the same time, count the three beads that are at the top.
- Next, string the beads again and draw the line down. Make a loop and head up, stringing the next beads. Count three beads and fasten on the other side. Thus, you have completed the creation of the first calla petal.
- Next, you will need to do the same. Count off five beads. It is necessary to go down and make a turn, heading up the next side. Continue weaving, counting six and eight beads along the way.
- In total, you will need to make indents from the beads six times. When the petal is formed, you need to straighten it, giving it the proper shape.
- For better fixation, you will need to sew the petal from the outside with a wire. The wire will allow you to give the calla the desired shape.
- Make a pestle from a yellow tier. You should collect ten centimeters of beads in the same way as in the first described master class.
- Insert the finished core into the flower and attach to the stem using wire.
To complete the flower arrangement of white callas, you can weave beaded branches on green wire from colorless beads.
At the end, from the resulting line of beads, form loops along the entire length of the segment.
Beading is quite an exciting process, but not all work is within the power of beginners. As for weaving callas from beads, the specificity of this work is only in attentiveness and following the sequence.
Implementation of your own experiments is permissible if you know the mechanism of beading of a particular product. Therefore, if you are a beginner, try to learn the principles and basics of beading first.
