Work will require materials: • Pin pine or hardwood - 5 pieces, • Thick wire, • Glue green, • Beads gold, beige, • Polyfoam, • Alabaster, glue, • Threads of white mulina, • Acrylic paint of gold color.
Conventional pine cones should first be turned into gold colored their paint. For a deeper color, painting should be done twice.
Spruce branches are constructed of oilcloth (or dense polyethylene) in green. Oilcloth is cut into 5 strips 7 cm wide and about 30 cm long. Each stripe folds in half lengthwise and is cut with scissors. The cuts must be done carefully, not reaching the fold line, so as not to cut the strip.
From a wire a piece equal to the length of the incised strip is cut.The wire is superimposed on the strip and twisted together with it.
It should make spruce twigs. They need to be rolled into a ring and fastened to the ends.
Next, prepare the white rods - the stems. Thick wire is cut into 7 pieces. A loop is made at the ends of 5 segments (bumps will be attached to them). Each segment is tightly wrapped with thread.
When all 7 rods are ready, collect them in a bundle and plant them in a prepared container, where a mixture of alabaster and water is poured.
After drying, we hide the surface of alabaster behind the same coniferous branches. We glue the pieces of snow on top of the foam.
Now you need to straighten the stems of our composition. They can be twisted in a spiral, in a circle, or simply give a chaotic shape. On the ends of the stalks with loops, we first glue the green rings, and in their center along the bump.We also make snow from the foam crumbs on the wreaths around the cones.
The beads will complete the topiary and bring color. They are glued in a chaotic manner on the cones, needles, stems, snow.
On top of all topiary you can scatter golden sparkles for nails. Such a winter composition, creating a fairy tale and cheering up, will serve as an excellent gift for the New Year holidays.
