Many craftswomen make various trees with their own hands from beads, gypsum and other materials. Such trees, of course, look very beautiful, but not many people know that plastic bottles and wire can also make a beautiful decorative tree.
For the manufacture we need:
- Wire (thin and thick).
- Green plastic bottle.
- A needle.
- Candle and matches.
- The pot.
- Plaster or cement.
- Threads of gray and green.
First, take a thick wire, in this case, aluminum wire. Bite off three segments of the same length from it and twist them together. On the one hand, we bend the ends of the wire, this will be the foundation of the future tree.
We take the pot, fill it with a solution of gypsum (cement), put the trunk in the center of the pot with the bent ends down.
Set the pot aside until the solution solidifies completely. In the meantime, let's take care of the twigs for the tree. Take a clean plastic bottle, cut the bottom and neck from it, and cut this blank into small squares of different sizes.
From these squares, cut out the leaves.
Now take a needle, heat its tip over a burning candle and make holes in the leaves.
And the leaves themselves do not melt much under the burning candle.
Now we need a thin wire. Cut off from it a segment of the desired length. We pass one end of the wire through a hole in the leaf, bend the wire in half, the ends will need to be twisted together.
We got a kind of twigs, and it is from such twigs that we will collect a full-fledged beautiful branch. To do this, make the required number of leaves that are on the wire, then fold the leaves together, and again twist the ends of the wire together. Thus we creak them well.
We collect these branches in one large branch. Accordingly, the ends of the wire are intertwined. So one branch is ready. We make the necessary number of branches for the tree.
We take the threads, in this case gray, and wrap them with a twig. The ends of the thread are fixed with glue. The end of the branch is not necessary to wrap.
When the solution in the pot froze and the tree trunk is well fixed, you can collect our tree. We take one twig and bend the tree trunk with the bare ends of the wire. Thus, we fix the branch on the trunk. Below we make long branches, and on top the branches are shorter. So the tree will look more natural.
Thus we attach all the branches. The trunk of the tree will also need to be wrapped with the same threads as the branches.
The tree is ready. Now take the green threads and make them weed in a pot. To do this, we cut the threads into pieces of the desired length, fold them in half, grease the bend side with glue and glue the thread to the gypsum.
Then you can decorate the pot itself from the outside as you wish. And our "Topol" is ready.
In this technique, you can make any tree: birch, mountain ash or apple tree. It already depends on your imagination.
