Beaded Honeymoon Love Tree
Sometimes, having received an invitation to a wedding, you want to give a newly-married couple a special gift that will not only please them, but also become a talisman of their family life. The love tree of beads with rosebuds, symbolizing blossoming love, will become a pleasant surprise for the newlyweds, especially if it is made by oneself. What is necessary?
Make tree love with blooming roses is not as difficult as it seems at first glance. A minimum of skills in the art of beadwork and the necessary equipment is enough, namely: - beads (light and dark green, red); - wires of different diameters (depends on the size of the beads and the thickness of the tree trunk); - thin threads of green color, - glue PVA; - cotton, - disc, - suitable wedding figurine - pliers. Weaving of roses
The French beading technique used to create these beautiful roses is quite simple. The central and extreme petals of the flower weave in different ways, but the essence of their execution is the same - the circular weaving of the bead row.Let's take a closer look at each stage.
Weaving three rose blooms 1. Weaving the central petals.
To weave the central petals of roses you need two pieces of wire, the diameter of which must be less than the hole of the beads in red. To save wire, a large number of red beads are strung directly onto a coil.
By the end of the wire with bead row a piece of wire 5-10 cm long is attached, as shown in the photo, is the axis around which the bead string will be braided.
The beads of a certain number are strung on the axis - the larger they are, the larger the petal will be. At an angle of 90 degrees the wire with a bead row in one turn is fixed on the opposite side of the connection with the axis.The wire must be brought over the axis - this is an important moment, since the wire should be less noticeable on the front side of the product.
The wire with a beaded series is then fixed one turn at the base of the connection with the axial wire. The twist angle is 90 degrees.
Thus, four rows of weaving of the axis are made. Due to the fact that the angle of the joint is 90 degrees, the shape of the petal will be rounded.
Axis wire is cut and bent to purl aside.
You need to make nine petals with six beads on the axis, and twenty-one petals with eight beads on the axis. 2. Weave extreme petals
Extreme rose petals are woven in the same technique as the central ones, with the only difference that, for wider petals, two axes are used.
The wire also winds up over the axles with a rotation at an angle of 90 degrees along the edges of the axes.
Axes are twisted in seven rows. With each row between the axes, the number of beads increases in the following sequence: 1-2-4-6-8-10-12.
Eighteen petals with a double axis need to be made. 3. Weaving sepal
The core of the sepal roses is woven according to the French technique. It is necessary to braid the core of eight beads of light green color with one row of dark green beads. The wire is attached over the axis when fastening. The twist angle should be sharp.
The second row consists of half the number of the first row. A wire is inserted between the beads and a double row of dark beads is woven to the middle of the last row.
At the base of the sepals you must withdraw wire between the outermost rows and tie in a similar double row on the other side.
For roses, five sepals per flower are required. 4. Assembling a rose flower
As described above, for one flower it is necessary: - three small petals with one axis; - seven larger petals with one axis; - six petals with a double axis; - five sepals. Petals are interconnected by green threads. ,
First, three small petals are joined. They need to be bent slightly along the axis, after which they should be inserted one into the other and tightly wound their bases with threads.
Next, add the remaining petals, forming a bud. Each petal must be bent, giving it a natural shape.Curved petals are much easier and neater fall on the bud.
Extreme petals with two axes join. All rose petals are overlapping in a circle.
The latter are attached to the sepals, which also need to be bent relative to the bud form.
Rose Bud Weaving 1. Rose petals with five petals
For these buds it is necessary to weave five petals with eight leaves on the axis and five sepals.
One petal should be placed in the middle, folded in half along the axis. Further, overlap, threads four petals around the central one.
The last fasten sepals.
It is necessary to make three such buds.
2. Rose buds with four petals
Rose buds with four petals are made in the same way as rose petals with five petals, with the only difference being that there are three extreme petals around the central petals.
You need to make two such buds.
3 Closed rose buds
Closed rose buds are made of one petal with eight beads on the axis and three sepals. Petal twists in a spiral and folds in half. It is desirable to use a soft wire.
Twisted petal is surrounded with three sepals and fastens them with threads.
Weaving sheets of roses
The leaves of the roses are also woven using the technique of French weaving. The axis is typed a certain number of beads - 5 or 8 - depending on the desired size of the leaves. The more beads on the leaf axis, the larger it will be.
The angle of twist is sharp. Alternating beads of different shades of green will make the leaves more spectacular.

It is necessary to make so many leaves that it is a multiple of three. The more leaves, the lush and greener the tree will turn out.
Next, the leaves are collected in twigs of three leaves. This is done with the help of green threads.
Assembling a Love Bead Tree 1. Making the frame
The framework for the tree of love of beads is made of wire of larger diameter, so that it does not bend under the weight of flowers and leaves, keeping the shape of the heart. Two pieces of wire are twisted into the desired shape, connected with the help of thread. The remaining length of the wire at the base is shaped into a ring (perpendicular to the trunk), so that the tree will stand steadily in an upright position. Thus, the length of the wire must exceed the length of the branches that make up the heart.
2.Making the branches
When the frame is ready, flowers and leaves are attached to it. Rose flowers are pretty heavy. To securely fix the flower on the base, it is necessary to expand the stem, attaching a stronger wire with threads, and then fix it to the base with thin wire. To distribute flowers and leaves should be evenly, creating a single composition.
3. Decorating a tree trunk and a glade
To decorate a tree trunk of love and a glade on which it stands, you will need: - cotton wool; - white glue; - disc;- beads; - paints; - brushes and water; - transparent nail polish or acrylic varnish. PVA glue is diluted with water in a 1: 1 ratio.
The tree is installed on the disk and covered with cotton wool dipped in a solution of PVA and water. First tree branches are made out.Soaked cotton wool is pulled out and wrapped around it with bare wire. Leaves and flowers before work must be bent.
The base is also plastered with moistened cotton, which glues the tree to the disk. It is important to fill all the voids between the wire and the disc.
Next, the tree is cleaned in a ventilated room until completely dry. Dry cotton wool is painted in different shades of green and brown, applying a lighter paint in the first layer. A meadow is painted in the tone of a tree. After the paint has dried, a clear varnish is applied on the trunk and the meadow. Before the varnish dries, the glade is decorated with beads to match. You can also set a suitable for this case statuette.
Such a bead tree does not require special care. It is enough to shake off some dust from it with a soft brush or to vacuum it at a low speed several times a month. Best of all products from beads look with good lighting in an easily accessible place.
