Flowers can be made not only from paper, clay, and plasticine, but also from unusual materials. In this lesson, you will learn how to make a hyacinth flower out of plastic straws.
Total Time: 25 minutes
Step 1: Take a straw
Make a hyacinth flower from a thick pink straw. Insert a thin wire into the tube.
Step 2: Take the scissors
Begin making frequent cuts on one side of the tube. Hold the wire on the other side, this will not cut the tube completely.
Step 3: Cut the straw to the end
Use scissors to make cuts along the entire length of the straw.
Step 4: Straighten the cuts
You can use the tips of scissors or a toothpick.
Step 5: Do not remove the wire
Fold one end at a right angle and insert it into a thin green tube, which will be a hyacinth stem.
Step 6: Twist the straw
Wrap this wire (with pink tube) around the green stem. At the same time, gradually move it down.
Step 7: Twist to the end
Continue twisting until the pink tube does not end. Wrap the tip of the wire around the stem.
Step 8: Use a green straw
Begin making leaves for your flower. Cut a few pieces from a thick green tube.
Step 9: Make cuts in the green straw
Cut the straws lengthwise.
Step 10: Make the sharp ends of the leaves
Expand the resulting blank. Make long serrated cuts on one side of it.
Step 11: Use scissors
Gently twist the tips with scissors.
Step 12: Repeat the steps
Make another such blank of leaves.
Step 13: Connect the flower with the leaves
Fasten the first leaves under the flower. Fix everything on clear tape.
Step 14: Finish your craft
Fasten the remaining leaves in the same way. Your plastic straw hyacinth is finished.
