Magnet heart from violets
I suggest you make a cute magnet that can be a wonderful gift for Valentine's Day. To make it you will need: gold, orange and green beads, thin and thick wire, adhesive gun, two magnets.
We begin work with making petals for violets. We take a wire 22 cm long. On the middle we string 3 golden beads. We take one more same bead and pass through it both the ends of the wire. We pull.
At one end we sew 11 beads, and the second end of the wire we pass through these beads only on the other side.
We pull. So we got the first row of petals.
To fix it, we take 1 bead and pass through it both the ends of the wire.
Flatter the second row of petals in the same way. At one end we string 22 beads. The second end is passed through these beads. We pull.
We fasten the series with one bead. The ends of the wire are well twisted together. For one violet we need: 3 petals with one row and 5 more petals with two rows. In total, six violets are needed for the magnet.
Now let's start making middles. On a wire 10 cm long, in the middle we string 3 beads. We take another bead and cross it both ends of the wire.
We pull. The ends are tightly twisted together. So we get the middle. In total, you need to make six of these midpoints.
We collect the flowers of violets as follows. We take the middle and a small petal in one row. We twist them together.
Then take the remaining two small petals and twist them together.
Then we twist the obi with each other.
Now take and twist the two large petals in two rows of two.
To the small petals and the middle we fasten one remaining petal.
Then attach the two large petals fastened together.
It turned out that such a violet. For a magnet, we need six such flowers.
For making branches for the magnet. Take the wire length of 20 cm and closer to one of its edges we sew 6 green beads. We put the long end into the last bead. We pull. So we got one leaf on the branch.
We recede a little space from the first leaf and string another 6 beads. We put the free end of the wire in the first bead. So we made the second leaflet.
So, we need to make twelve sheets. Then fold the wire together and twist it. At us it turns out here such branch. In total for a magnet we need seven such branches.
Let's start assembling the magnet. We take a thick wire 17 cm long. I took the wire from the cable in the red winding. You can take a simple copper wire and wrap it with floral tape.
We give it the shape of a heart.
We begin to fasten to the heart of violets.
With the help of a glue-gun, apply the heated glue and from the inside of the heart glue the violet to it.
The ends of the violet wire are wrapped around the heart and cut off.
In the same way, we fasten the second and all subsequent flowers.
This field is also attached to the magnet branches with leaves.
This is how our magnet looks like with all the elements attached to it.
The last step is to attach the magnets. Apply hot glue on the wire, take the magnets and attach them.
We have turned out to be such a magnet that can be a good gift for Valentine's Day.
