Workshop orchid twigs

The flowers are made of plastic suede without the use of special tools. Products made from this material are durable and easy to use.

And in order to make a twig, we should prepare the materials:

  • - yellow plastic suede.

  • - scissors.

  • - wire.

  • - ballpoint pen without paste.

  • - acrylic paints.

  • - lighter.

  • - a thin brush.

  • - sticky floral tape.

  • - Moment glue.

  • - foil.

  • - paper tape.

An orchid twig consists of one bud and two flowers. First, draw the shape of the template. The flower itself will consist of 5 petals. One central even and two side with an inclination in two directions. The orchid has an interesting middle with a tongue.

According to the prepared templates, circle and cut out the necessary details from the selected suede. Do not forget that there are two flowers on the branch.

Then, in turn, each petal must be processed three times. First, we draw with a core veins along the entire length of the petals. Next, take the yellow paint and slightly cover the front side, and the pressed strips will be clearly visible. And for the third treatment, take a lighter. Warm up the edges of the petals in small sections and immediately direct the bend of the edge onto the face of the petal with your hands.

Now go to the middle of the flower. According to the template, we cut out the necessary part from the selected suede. Prepare a thin brush and red acrylic. You can take a picture of the desired orchid. And try to try to repeat a similar paint drawing. On two sides of our blank we draw with a brush.

Next, we proceed to the heat treatment of the same workpiece. Let's start with the central rounded part. Lighter carefully warm the edge and make a small bend, repeating this several times.

Then we heat the area in the middle of the workpiece from the wrong side and use our finger to make a depression in the same way on the wrong side.

It remains only to tilt the center of the side small circles. We use a lighter, heat the parts and tilt them in the right direction.

On this part there was a small untreated area. This is the place to which we will attach the tongue. It must also be tilted slightly towards the center of the part. The workpiece turned out to be complex in shape.

We turn to the details that will serve as a tongue in the flower. First, paint the rounded side in red, on the one hand.

We direct the heat from the lighter from below and round off this part and bend it in a semicircle.

Two details of the middle of the flower are ready.

It remains only to glue the lower edge of the tongue to the prepared place.

Now we will make a stamen. Cut a small strip of suede and take a wire, 8 cm long. We wrap the wire itself with a sticky floral tape.

Glue the yellow strip on the edge in the form of a barrel.

And so, all the details of the orchid are ready. We proceed to the assembly of the flower. First glue the stamen, pierce the wire under the base of the tongue. We glue the stamen, and the wire itself will serve as the stem of the flower.

We lower the bottom of all the petals with a lighter and slightly tilt the edge down, from the front side.

Then we fix the two upper side lobes. We place them horizontally relative to our middle, on its wrong side, near the wire.

Next glue the upper petal and only then place the two lower side petals. All parts are glued to the bent lower edges and placed around the wire. All petals should not be snug against each other. But if the wrong side turns out on the wrong side, then it is better to close it with a small circle of suede.

Do not forget that there will be two flowers on the branch. And move on to making one bud. We cut off yellow suede with a strip 1 cm wide and six cm long. Divide into 3 parts and round two corners on one side. We get three long forms of petals. Then we tint the upper part of these blanks in green. We wrap a small piece of wire with tape and fasten a small ball of foil on top. The petals should be just above the foil part.

Then just glue all the petals in a circle on the foil. The bud is ready.

As a result, we have two flowers and a bud.

We now turn to the assembly of the branch. The base is made of two pieces of wire 25 cm long. We wrap two pieces at once with paper tape, we get the basis for the branch.

The first to fasten the bud on a twig. We place it a little higher than the base and fasten everything by scrolling with a floral green ribbon. We go to the base and wind about three cm. On the stem of the bud we immediately make a small bend.

Next we apply the base of the flower and weighed well, gradually sinking down.

We fasten the second orchid and wrap the remaining branch with a ribbon.

Colors can be given the desired slope and direction. Do not forget about the wrong side, which should also be neat.

The branch is collected, it can be used in interior compositions.

Good luck to all!
