Egg from beads: how to make a gift by Easter with own hands?

Right sign: in shops painted eggs, so Easter were available soon for sale. Colored eggs are one of the main symbols of the Easter Sunday.

According to the legend the first Easter egg was presented by Mary Magdalene to the Roman emperor Tibery. Maria came to inform the emperor on Christ`s Revival what Tibery answered that this history - lie, and the person can also not arise from the dead as to become egg red. At this moment the emperor just held egg in hand. And once he pronounced these words, egg at first turned pink, and then became bright - scarlet color. It is claimed that for this reason red eggs and became Easter symbol. Besides, red color is a color of blood of Christ.

However, history says that colored eggs were in the course and in pre-Christian times. Egg since ancient times was considered as a fertility symbol, and on the corresponding holidays people gave each other the painted eggs. For example, in Ancient Rome it was accepted to give the wooden painted (usually gilded) eggs for a holiday of the vernal equinox as a symbol of revival of the nature after winter. So it is not surprising that this custom removed to Christianity - egg really is a life symbol.

Easter eggs are not so much food, how many a gift. For this reason for a long time there are not only usual, painted by Easter, eggs, but also souvenir options - eggs from a tree, a stone, a papya - Masha, porcelain and so on. Faberge made Easter eggs of jewels and metals - surprising works of art.

Modern technologies give a set of opportunities for a decor of gift Easter eggs, beginning from use of thermostickers and finishing with a manual list. Wooden painted eggs, and also the eggs decorated with beads are very popular are already almost jewel.

However, the eggs decorated with beads have one shortcoming if you want to make similar egg independently: production of a beaded braid for egg demands certain skills and abilities. However it is possible to do also without them. I offer you the way of production of the Easter egg decorated with beads, which is not demanding any skills except unless patience and accuracies.

For a start preparation is required. In the shops trading in goods for needlework it is possible to buy wooden egg and a support to it. Decoration of egg will require 40 g of beads (if egg of the size of large chicken, approximately D0), about 5 g of beads for production of flowers, and also paillettes (small florets and leaves), glue and a wire (it is optimum - a thin copper wire which is used for transformers).

On long ( very much long) a wire strings 40 g of beads (this procedure demands patience), and this beaded “chain“ accurately pastes over egg. It is the best of all to begin pasting from above - it will not affect stability of egg on a support and if it is necessary to stick out a delay piece, then he will mask the subsequent decor. For pasting of wooden egg by beads it is used super - glue or all-purpose adhesive.

To weave crosses out of beads, on a delay two biserina are strung, then, holding one wire “tail“, the second is passed through biserinka towards to it. The wire is tightened. Further - it is strung on one of the ends of a wire the following two biserinka, and the second end of a wire is passed through these biserina towards, again we tighten a loop. And thus we spin a cross perekladinka to the necessary size. When the perekladinka is ready, we twist the ends of a wire and we stretch them through biserinka to disguise the remained tail. If the size of openings in beads does not allow to make it, simply we bend a tail on a reverse side - it will disappear at a cross sticker on egg.

For production of the second perekladinka we cling a delay to already ready part in the right place - where there has to be the second crossbeam. And from this place we spin as well as earlier. Then we cling a delay on the other side of a ready perekladinka and we spin the soulmate.

Rhombuses and petals of a flower are made in this way, only at first it is necessary to gather not two biserinka on a wire, and three. At the same time one is left, and through two remained it is passed towards to the second end of a wire. After a tightening of a loop it turns out small treugolnichek. Then three biserinka through which the wire is passed are gathered, then - four, and the widest part - five a biserinok. Then the number a biserinok among decreases to one.

After the end of weaving of rhombuses the remained wire tails mask as well as in case of a cross. And here with petals of flowers another matter. Here it is necessary that there were two tails, and is longer. In order that to make a flower of petals, we take two petals and on two delays (one from one petal, the second - from another) we string ten a biserinok, then we attach one more petal in the same way (two delays from different petals, on both are strung biserinka at once). In a flower - five petals. As a result you in hands will have five petals and five beaded “tails“. Petals are straightened, biserinka on delays are adjusted up that they densely adjoined to petals, and then the wire is densely twisted. Then petals finish - and the flower is ready.

Flowers - paillettes will require about two biserinka on each paillette (red and green). At first the wire is passed through a red biserinka, then at once the paillette is put on two ends of a wire. Then we take the second biserinka (green), we put on it one end of a wire, and the second is passed through a biserinka towards. We tighten a loop, we twist the ends of a wire. Leaves - paillettes are just strung on a delay, and the ends of a wire are twisted.

When all decor is prepared, crosses and rhombuses are pasted on egg, from flowers and leaves the bouquet which is pasted on egg too is formed. Flowers and paillettes finish so that to hide the wire basis. The support for egg is similarly decorated. After that it is necessary only to wait for glue drying, and the gift egg decorated with beads is ready.
