Beaded Butterflies Panel
Technique - parallel weaving. To work you need: • wire with a diameter of 0.3 mm; • beads for 1 butterfly: purple, lilac, pink, black (large); • beads for 2 butterflies: yellow, red, black (small and large); • 2-3 invisible needles; • A small frame.
Butterfly consists of: • the upper wings (2 pieces); • lower wings (2 pieces); • torso. Butterfly №1 Step 1. The upper wing. Prepare 1 meter of wire and weave according to the scheme №1.
Bead colors used: • lilac; • pink; • purple. This scheme will get such a wing:
For one butterfly, you need to make 2 such wings.
Step 2. Lower Wing We need a wire of 80 cm in length. We make the wing according to the scheme number 2.
Should have such a lower wing:
We manufacture them 2 pieces.
Step 3. Torso. We carry out the torso of a black bead butterfly according to the scheme No. 3, weave it from the bottom up. Wire length 20 cm.
This is the torso:
From the ends of the wire we make antennae. To do this, we put one black bead on each wire, and at a distance of 2 cm from the body we twist each end of the wire.
Note: for a butterfly body, it is advisable to use beads with a larger hole diameter, since you need to insert 2 or one hole in it 3 wires. Step №4. Assembling the butterfly. We pass the lower wire of the upper wings through the 6th row of the trunk, and the upper wire - through the 7th row.
Wire is tightened, twisted from the back and cut. We drive the lower wire of the lower wings into the 4th row, and the upper wire into the 5th row.
We are tightening, twisting and cutting the wires. The first butterfly is ready!
Butterfly №2. Step 1. The upper wing. We measure the wire length of 80 cm and weave the scheme number 1.
Used colors of beads: • red; • yellow; • black. It should turn out such a wing:
For butterfly we make 2 upper wings.
Step 2. The Lower Wing. We cut off the wire with a length of 80 cm and weave the winglet according to scheme No. 2.
This is the bottom wing: Weave 2 lower wings.
Step 3. Torso. The body of this butterfly weaves like the body of the butterfly №1. Step №4. Build a butterfly. We thread the wires of the upper wings into the 6th and 7th row of the butterfly body, and the wires of the lower wings into the 4th and 5th row.
We tighten the wires, twist and cut them. The second butterfly is ready!
Note: there are no two butterflies in nature, therefore, when working with beads, you can show your imagination and create your own, individual butterfly. Good luck! By the size of the frame we select the background from any material: colored cardboard, fabric, wallpaper, etc. We place the material in a frame, strengthen it, and attach it from above with the help of invisible needles of butterflies. Our panel is ready!
