Heart decoration from beads on a stand

Hello, dear visitors. In this article we will tell you about how you can make a beautiful souvenir in the form of a heart made of thick wire and beads, attached to a small stand. This souvenir can be made for the day of all lovers, for a holiday (for example, for a wedding anniversary), and can be made simply as decoration for a house.

To make such a souvenir, we needed:
- The wire is thin (from 0.01 mm. Thick);
- The wire is thick (from 2 mm.);
- Nippers, tweezers;
- Beads of green, blue, yellow, orange, violet and white colors;
- Beads of blue, white, brown, pink and beige colors;
- A bottle of lemonade;
- Gypsum with water;
- Plain paper;
- Polymer glue for glass;
- Color paper, scissors;
- PVA glue or pencil;
- Scotch tape.
When we started to work, we took a bottle from under lemonade and, having rinsed it several times, left it to let the excess water out of it:

When the bottle dries, we will need to paste it with plain paper to apply the preliminary layer, which will need to be pasted with several layers of particles of colored paper. This layer can be made up of pieces of different size and shape:

Having made a smooth and neat surface out of white paper, we cut colored paper into small squares of different sizes and paste over the bottle with them:

After that, apply a clear lacquer or adhesive tape on the surface so that the paper surface cannot quickly get dirty:

Next, we take a thick wire about 150 cm long and twist it into a heart shape; we tie up both ends in the lower side of the figure, forming a large knot.

It seems to us that this wire alone may not be too strong and bend under the weight of all the bead jewelery that will load it. Therefore, it is desirable to take for work or two wires, or not to overload the figure with decorations.
Now, in a separate cup, we part some plaster and use it to attach the shape to the bottle. Due to the fact that the neck of the bottle is narrow and the wire nodes are large enough, the figure kept perfectly in it and to fix it with gypsum was easy enough (no part of the gypsum fell to the bottom).After that, we cleaned the areas of crafts, which accidentally got a plaster, and left it to dry:

Now we undertake to make leaves, berries and flowers from beads. Taking a thin wire, we are stringing one of the beads onto its middle, intending to make a leaf:

We attach two more to this bead by passing them through the ends of the wire:

Then three, four:

Having made the middle of the leaf, in the subsequent rows we gradually reduce the number of beads, and, having reached the last, we tie the wire several times.

After that, we attach a thin wire to the copper figure, on which we will string the finished figures of leaves and berries.

The first "berry" in our craft was a large beige bead. In order to keep it securely and the wire does not stand out on the surface, you need to attach a small bead at the other end of the bead:

In this way we will collect all the subsequent leaves and berries that we will need to make.

Now we start to make flowers. In order to collect one flower, we have made seven petals and one “ring” of wire and beads. The hue of the petals can be taken any, - to choose:

Each of the petals we attach to a pair of beads from the "ring":

It is necessary to attach a bead to the center of each collected flower:

Next, we create several purple flowers with white edges and attach them to the souvenir:

Before decorating the figure with flowers, we managed to collect several rows with blue, pink and brown berries, decorating the craft:

After that, we decided to collect two white flowers and two purple with orange stripes, but in a slightly different way than the previous ones. Having composed eight petals, we string them on a wire, one of the tips of which is held in the second circle:

Then, making another semicircle and holding both wires in opposite directions, we string a small bead and tie up the wire in the reverse side of the finished flower:

We add the finished flowers to the craft. In the course of the work, you can make yellow leaves in case of a lack of green and blue beads. There are nine flowers in total in our craft:
After that, everything - our crafts are ready. It took us about 2 weeks to make it, and it seems to us that it turned out to be very beautiful:
