Cactus from beads own hands: photo master class and the scheme of weaving
Cacti rarely bloom, but you can make your own cactus, which will bloom all year round — for example, of beads. Flowering cactus from the beads will help to make detailed instructions with photos.
Cactus made from beads is easy to make by hand even for beginner needlewomen. First you need to choose how to create the craft - flat or bulky. For a bulk cactus you need a small flower pot. Instead of a pot you can take a plastic cup. At the bottom of the glass you need to put some weight.
These can be pebbles or iron bolts and nuts. The basis for a cactus from beads can become a regular foam plastic. To do this, cut a piece of styrofoam with a suitable size with a knife, giving a rounded shape. It is better to paint the base in the color of the beads. Paste into the pot. Secure with glue. This procurement will serve as the basis for future crafts made of beads.
On the photo there is a cactus of beads decorated with a flower. You can use a ready-made artificial flower. This master class will tell you how to make a cactus from beads in the simplest way.
There is no specific scheme to do such artifacts, but there is a general principle. Need a long wire and a lot of beads. Patience and time will also be needed to make such an elegant cactus, as in the photo.

How to make a cactus from beads: photo master class
1. Take a hank of wire. Beads pour out in a saucer. String green beads on the wire. You need to string as much as possible. Counting the first 5 beads, push them. Through the next 5 beads, pass the wire. Pull the tip out. It will be the future prickle of a cactus. Leave a spine 1-1.5 centimeters long. On the other hand, to release the wire by about 2-3 centimeters, cut off. This piece of wire can be inserted into the foam body of the cactus from the beads.
2. Repeat the first step. It will take 100 of them. This will be the future cactus of beads.
3. Prepare a framework for the future of cactus. Make sure that it is balanced.
4. Connect three pieces of spines. Long ends of the wires twist together. Insert the workpieces tightly into the foam. Move better from the middle to the edges. If there are large gaps between the spines, make additional details. A cactus flower can be made from yellow or pink beads.
You can create flower petals as well as spines, but you need to pass the wire through 1 common bead. And do not leave a thorn. After making 5 petals, connect them, insert them into the upper part of the cactus. You can leave the artwork from beads simply in the form of a green cactus.
