We will make orchids from beads in a pot
White beads should be
matte, and pink and yellow can sparkle. Take a wire about one meter long. Depart from the edge of about thirty centimeters and bend it. One end of the wire will be longer, and the other, respectively, shorter. Start from twisting the wire to the middle from the bend. 15 beads of white color should be strung for the short end, and 16 beads of white and pink flowers for the long end. In this case, there will be five pink ones, and they must be alternated with white ones. Twist the two ends of the wire. On the long end you string 16 beads of white and pink again and twist around the base. Repeat the same until the fifth row, each time increasing the number of beads by three. So one big bead orchid petal will be ready. These petals need to make fifteen pieces: five for each flower. When large petals are ready, you can start making small ones. For this we need only pink beads. Weave in the same way as the big petals, only initially the beads need to be taken five units less - 10 for the short and 11 for the long end of the wire. Make you need five rows. With each row, as in the previous petal, increase the number of beads by three things.
Make small petals need nine pieces. Now you need to make a middle for an orchid of beads. Take the yellow beads, start to weave in the same way as the small petals, just make two rows. In the second row, string on two beads more than the previous one. The middle should be slightly rounded. Use a pencil or pen for this.
When all the petals are ready, you can start collecting them. In each flower there will be five large petals, three small and one middle. Do not forget to tie the big beads to the colors. Make a stalk from a thick wire, connect all the orchids to each other. So you can create bouquets with orchids. In the pot dissolve the plaster, put the stem there, let the plaster harden. Next, you need to paint it with brown acrylic paint, and put decorative stones on top.
