Balls with weaving
In order to make paper Christmas balls with weaving, you will need sheets of colored paper, sheets of white paper, patterns, pencil, scissors, glue glue, a brush, clothespins and pieces of satin ribbon.
First of all, it is necessary to prepare templates for all components of the ball. Below the photo will be offered three options for patterns, each of which allows you to make a ball decorated with unusual weaving. Choosing one of the templates, you need to cut two sets of parts: one set of colored paper, the other - of white paper. Then the colored parts should be laid out in the form of a flower, and the circle should be glued in the middle so that the parts are kept in a single design. It is also necessary to lay out the details cut out of white paper, only the details must be laid in the opposite direction. Then you need to put a construction of white parts, and on top put the design of their colored parts and twist them, that is, lay each row of strips on top of each other in turn. After the rows are woven, you need to attach a piece of satin ribbon.
In order to make an openwork snowflake, you need an old book, fishing line, scissors, glue and tinsel. First, on the sheets of the book it is necessary to perform the marking, that is, to designate strips of the same width, but of different length. Then the strip should be cut. Then each selection of the five bands must be bent in the form of a drop so that one of the snowflake crystals is obtained. The edges of all the drops must be connected and secured with a fishing line. Similarly, several more such elements should be made. Next, one set of strips must be twisted in the form of a circle and secure the edges with a fishing line. After that, crystals should be glued to it in a circle. The side parts of the elements of which the crystal is composed must also be glued. At the final stage, the snowflake can be decorated with sparkles and attach a loop of fishing line or ribbon.
