Lovers of making beautiful things with their own hands, these ideas can come in handy. The first option can be used even in art classes with children of almost any age. The second is more time consuming, but the result is worth it. Let's get started? Candlestick made of clay and beads.
Materials: Blue clay, Bowl or small bowl, Oilcloth,
Beads of the same color, but in different shades or beads, Tea candle. We knead the clay and pour a little water over several hours. During this time, water will impregnate all the pieces and grains of clay and clay can easily be kneaded to uniformity. The work is, frankly, dirty. If you do not plan to work with clay right now, then you should wrap the soaked clay in a damp cloth and put it in a plastic bag. Clay does not dry for several days. A piece of clay the size of a large apple rolls into a ball.
On the surface of the ball there should be no cracks and obvious unevenness.We press the tea candle into the ball like this.
It remains to decorate the candlestick with beads. I used green in different shades.
On one candlestick a handful of beads left. Beads are evenly poured on oilcloth and begin to roll out the candlestick so that the beads are pressed into the clay. And so from all sides, until the candlestick is smooth.
After a few days, the clay will dry and the candlestick will be completely ready. You can put heating on the boiler and things will go faster.
Candlesticks from cans.
This is very spectacular candlesticks that will be appropriate not only for the New Year's Eve, but also be able to decorate your garden in the summer. We will need: Banks with self-opening lids - 2 pcs., Tea candles - 2 pcs. , Glue-pencil, Paper, Pencil, Spray paint - 1-2 colors, Drill. With the help of a pencil we make thematic, but simple th drawing. By the new year I drew a Christmas tree and a ball. Glue the picture with glue to the banks.
When the glue dries, drill small holes along the contour of the pattern with a drill.
Remove the paper, wash the glue jars and dry.
Paint spray paint in some neutral color. And, actually, everything!
It remains to wait for the paint to dry and put the candles inside. This is what happens.
