Maslenitsa is among the most significantRussian holidays. In the old days people marked it without fail. For seven days, the celebration lasted, the meaning of which was to bid farewell to the winter and the spring meeting.
If you look into the church calendar, you can see that the holiday falls on the "cheese week". Previously, people rarely made presents for Shrovetide with their own hands, and now it has become fashionable.
Waiting for the holiday has always filled the humana special joy and hope. As it approaches, nature begins to change. Spring air is already in the air, and winter is gradually receding. Increasingly, the sun shines from the sky, warming not only the bodies, but also the hearts of people. It also feels the approach of Maslenitsa and is doing its job diligently: it makes the snow melt, turns it into water. Well, how not to rejoice at the merry holiday of spring? Moreover, you can make handmade items on Shrove Tuesday with your own hands and cheer your friends. In addition, this is a very fascinating process.
Earlier this holiday celebrated everything from small tois great. But the children approached him with particular enthusiasm. At dawn a whole crowd of children ran out into the yard and built slides. Someone learned a special holiday speech and pronounced it. It consisted in glorifying Maslenitsa. Also, the child invited her to play, eat, sled. Usually, when it came to an end, the slides were already made, and the pancakes were ready.
Everyone knows that in Russia there was a traditionto burn a stuffed pancake week. Usually it happened on the Day of Forgiveness. However, in some cities it was also customary to make the whole family of small pupae, also called Pancake week. It's about Tver, Vladimir and Tula. Speaking of a stuffed animal, it has always been simple, unattractive and executed without much effort. But the pupae were made very beautiful. Today you can make similar souvenirs for Pancake week with your own hands.
It was believed that such crafts protect the home frommisfortunes and misfortunes. They were in every house, especially where young married couples lived. Such pupae personified healthy children and money abundance. Maslenitsa usually stood near the door or in a red corner.
Today, of course, people like these dolls areless seriously. They can be found in a store or on the market, but it's much more interesting to make Maslenitsa by yourself. It's pretty easy and very exciting. Do not need any additional devices, except your hands. I do not even need a needle. Let's look at how to make Maslenitsa with your own hands.
What you need
- Wooden stick (it is desirable that its length is 45-50 cm).
- Several colored scraps (calico or chintz).
- Threads (give preference to strong, acrylic for example).
- Trimming material, pieces of paper, cotton wool.
If it is not even, it has small twigs, then do not cut them and try to make it smooth. Let the wand remain as it is.
It must be filled with some material,such as scraps of cloth, paper, old cotton wool. All this must be tightly squeezed in the hand, so that the rag will take the form of a ball. Then you should take two pieces of white thick material (preferably, its size is 25x25 cm) and roll it into this "stuffing". The resulting ball should be put on a stick and tightly tied with threads. Do not paint your face, it's not accepted. Now you probably already understand how to make Maslenitsa with your own hands, it's really simple.
For him, we need a couple of skeins of bast (you can find it in the household goods). You should tie them to a stick a little below the ball, one in front, and the other from behind.
Take the cardboard and roll it into a tube. It is necessary that the diameter is about 3 cm and the length is 20 cm. We put on the tube a colored material (red, lemon, scarlet) and bind it in three places. Then we receive the received arms under the trunk from behind and firmly tie it to the stick.
If you are thinking how to make Shrovetidewith your own hands, you need to understand that she is not a little girl, but a fully formed girl. Therefore, you need to make her a big breast (remember how to make a head) and stick to the stick.
At the first stage, you need to bind to the dollsuede. It can be any width as you like. But keep in mind that the attractiveness of a doll directly depends on the number of assemblies. Now you should wear a dress. How to make it? Just cut out a rectangle from the material, and then make a hole for the head and sleeve. Then take a fabric of a different color (it is desirable that it too was a flash) and cut out the apron. Tie it with a scarlet belt to the doll.
As you already know, you will need to braidspit. For it, you need to take three strips of material (not less than 35 cm). When the braid is braided, it is necessary to wrap it up with threads on the top and bottom, and then put it on the head in such a way that the so-called "spikelet" has turned out. The last stage is fixation with threads. Now you need to put a headscarf on your head. It is better to tie it from behind.

The Carnival is ready. Now we can recall the ancient tradition, which was followed in Tula. There, strips of scarlet material were cut, made a wish and dragged them to the Pancake Week. Try it, but what if you want it to happen?
