Sometimes you can make really amazing things out of some extremely simple and ordinary material. This description is the best fit for jute twine, because this simple thread hides so many possibilities. With its help, you can feel like an artist, a sculptor, and almost a jeweler.
There are no rules in jute weaving, but there is a huge scope for creativity and imagination. See what an exquisite candlestick rose you can make using jute filigree. Anyone can master this technique, the main thing here is desire and patience:)
You will need:
- polymer glue;
- jute twine;
And the first thing we need to do is prepare the base of the candlestick. The main principle of working with jute is very simple and is as follows. The required figure must be formed on a flat surface, secured with glue, and then let it dry thoroughly. Therefore, at the first stage, we take a cardboard circle, repeating with its parameters the base we need, and lay out jute on it.
Here's what you should get. Similarly, we braid the second circle so that our base is two-sided. We glue both parts together, and we also process the joint with jute.
We form a "nest" for the candle. To do this, we need a jute circle with the same diameter as the candle. To form it, we simply roll up the thread with a "snail", remembering to fasten it with glue. Then we form the walls of the "nest" along the height of the candle, laying row by row.
Now we form leaves from jute, and then collect them into a twig, placing them on the wire. We also braid the wire with jute. We attach the leaves to the wire with glue. We braid the wire stem with jute, give it the necessary shape. Then we glue twigs with leaves to it, and fix the finished stem on a stand.
It remains to make a bud. To do this, we will plait circles, which will later become rose petals. We cut some of them in half. We begin to form the flower. Glue the "nest" with halves of the petals. Then we collect a flower from the petals, glue all the parts together. Admiring the result:)
