How to make it yourself?
In templates and schemes it is easy to make lanterns that seem to be “impregnable”. For example, the idea of a pretty new year lamp from cigarette paper will be represented by novice.
Let’s give step-by-step instructions.
- One friend needs to put 2 sheets of cigarette paper, folding them along the length of half. The fold is needed.
- The paper after that you need to deploy, collect it without splitting onto the sheets in the harmonica of the folds. The depth of the fold is approximately 1.5 cm.
- If you want to do a smaller flashlight, the edges of the harmonica need to be cut on equal to the center of the distance. Then the paper is so unfolded and turning the convex side of the median line to the table.
- You need to take a needle with a tight thread, worn into it. Gather one side of the sheet in the accordion again, stretching through the paper thread. Ends tie so that the circle is closed.
- On the other hand, leaf do all the same.
- Folds distribute across the circumference, the edge of the sheet to connect two-way scotch.
And one more instruction, with the help of which anyone can make a beautiful flashlight (can become a candlestick if instead of the garland inside the candle). By the way, a fishing “Firefly” can be a luminous element in a flashlight.
For its manufacture need:
- jar suitable in size+
- Acrylic medium+
- glue (if not thermopystole, then any adhesive composition of strong fixation)+
- sponge or rigid brush+
- Scotch, Wire, Arm and Ribbon+
- Any suitable decor elements.
The manufacturing process consists of certain steps.
- A medium is applied on the bank, he needs to give to dry about an hour.
- A sponge on the surface is applied by varnish, which also dries.
- Scotch tape is stuck that the jar zone, where snow should be less. And again, the remaining space is covered with lacquer.
- Until managed to dry the lacquer, you need to quickly scatter salt, having dipped into it a wet layer of banks.
- When everything dries, the future New Year’s lamp is ready to decorate. Wired neck banks should be wrapped several times. Then you need to make a flashlight handle, attach it to the neck.
- Gorlashko jars wrapped with a twine, attaching fir branches under it. Next, it all depends on the author’s imagination – berries, ribbon, beads, even small fir balls can decorate this craft.
Inside the resulting snow-covered flashlight, you can put any safe element. The handle of the product can be wrapped with beautiful thread, braid, lace.
You can also collect a steaming composition of the lamps, which will symmetrically decorate the surface of the chest, console, windowsill and t. D.
