Flowers from the threads in a homemade vase

Spring is not soon, and I want to decorate my apartment with at least some flowers. You can, of course, buy a half-dead cut plant in a flower shop that won't last a couple of days. And you can collect all your creative potential and make an original decoration for an apartment. We offer you a master class on making flowers from knitting threads, which you can place in an unusual vase made from scrap materials.
To work prepare the following components:
- knitting yarns, two skeins of any color (for example, orange and red);
- a piece of thick cardboard;
- tin can (it is possible from under coffee);
- a piece of self-woven cloth;
- flax rope;
- glue for fabric;
- scissors;
- wooden long skewers;
- decor elements (ribbons, appliqués from fabric).
Prepare for work

Step 1. Getting down to making a decorative vase. Take a can and cut a piece of self-woven cloth (enough to wrap the entire container and slightly tuck inward).

Glue the cut with a cloth glue so that it completely covers the entire jar and tuck it inside a centimeter 3-4. Wrap the bottom edge of the container with a linen rope (1/3 of a jar) and tie a string around the top of the bow.

It is possible to decorate a decorative vase at your discretion. In the photo, these are two multi-colored felt birds (you can also get a finished appliqué).

Step 2. Now turn to making flowers from knitting threads. First, you need to cut out two stencils from thick cardboard (as shown in the photo). One of them is large (9 cm in diameter), and the other is smaller (6 cm). As you can see, there are 8 small squares on the rings.
cut two stencils

For each flower, you need to choose two shades that are suitable for the color scheme, but a little contrast. In the photo it is orange and red color. So, we take a small billet and a red thread and begin to form a flower. To do this, you need to twist the thread opposite squares. The thread should go to the "eight", crossing the center. It is necessary to make 3-4 turns.

Now you are shifted to the next small square and intertwined with parallel to it.
move to the next square

So you should get weave through 4 pairs of squares.

Turn the workpiece over and fix the two ends of the working thread.It is necessary to tie up all the intersections of the threads, which turned out in the center of the circle. If this is not done, they will disintegrate when you remove the coils from the stencil.
Turn the workpiece

Remove the threads from each square. Here is such a flower.

By the same principle, make a flower from an orange thread, only on a large stencil.
