Applique from cotton wool: pictures for children with photos and videos
Children love to do handmade crafts! And every mother is a skilful dreamer in this regard. And when grandiose ideas are already embodied, in the course are the improvised materials, for example, cotton pads. Vata is generally very soft and pliable material, from which you can make a lot of interesting elements, pleasing the eye, as well as occupying restless children. Appliques from cotton discs take the leading place in the list of hand-made articles in kindergarten.
In this master class on applications from cotton discs you will learn how to make a snowman, caterpillar, chicken and hare. So, let's get started!
For crafts made of cotton, you do not need to reinvent the wheel, everything you need is always at hand. We will need:
- Wadded disks;
- Glue. It can be glue-pencil, PVA glue or glue gun - any method will work, the main thing is to glue the elements together well;
- Scissors to cut out details;
- Cardboard is the basis for a future craft;
- Paints. It is more preferable to take gouache, these paints are more dense and do not lose color with time, unlike watercolor .;
- Decorative elements to supplement their application. These can be beads, pieces of felt or other cloth, twigs of trees and so on.
Snowman for the holidays
For a snowman from cotton wheels, you need to take four wadding discs, cardboard for the base, black buttons (three medium and two small), sequins, a piece of orange dense fabric, two small twigs for hands, scissors, paints and glue.
The cardboard-base is colored with gouache, the background depends on your imagination. Since the snowman consists, as a rule, of three large balls, for the first and biggest one we take a whole cotton disc, we glue it to the dried out background. The second ball is cut with scissors and we make it a little bit smaller than the first, also glued, slightly overlapped with the first. And the third, the smallest wadded disk that forms the head, we cut out the diameter even smaller than the second wadded disk. We glue the disk-head to the body of the snowman. All neatly, but strongly pressed, so that it adhered well to the cardboard.
Now we paste the buttons. Two small buttons play the role of the eyes, and the middle buttons have buttons on the torso of the snowman. We glue the branches on the hands. We fold the orange dense fabric with a cone, - this will be a spout-carrot, - and glue it to the bottom of the upper disc. A hat or a bucket of snowman can be cut out of black or gray cardboard, and you can cut it out of the remaining wadded disc and, applying gouache in black, glue it to the applique.
Remains of cotton discs can be glued to the bottom of our future picture, it will be snowdrifts. Finish the handicraft by decorating: we put the sequins on the snow and on the background, you can use beads or small beads instead of sequins.
Caterpillar made of cardboard
Making a caterpillar made of cotton discs is even easier than a snowman, you can seat it on flowers.
For the caterpillar, you will need a cardboard base, several cotton wheels for the body of the caterpillar, black beads or decorative eyes, scissors, glue and paints.
Wadded discs should be painted green, wait until it dries completely. You can also paint the cardboard, you can draw a sheet on it, on which the caterpillar will "sit". Bind one disc in a lap with the previous one. We start from the end of the caterpillar, so the last glued disc is the future face of the caterpillar. We glue beads or eyes on it, draw a mouth and cheeks. In addition, you will need to cut out small horns and paint them in yellow. They are stuck in the last place to the head. Caterpillar made of cotton wheels ready!
For the production of chickens from cotton pads, discs, cardboard base, scissors, paints and glue will be needed. If you want to decorate the finished picture with decor elements, it always remains at your discretion.
We paste the cardboard into the background colors. For example, it could be a lawn: a green grass and a blue sky.
Preparing the chickens. Two wadded discs are dyed in yellow, also in yellow, we cut out two cut triangular wings. Next, we cut out scallops and beaks, we dye them in red, and also cut out the paws and paint them with brown.
When the discs and cardboard are dry, you can start applying the appliqué. First come the trunk, then one wing to each chicken. Then we glue the scallops and the beaks, and then the paws. Eyes of chickens can be painted with paints or markers, or you can glue black beads or beads.
Our chickens are ready!
A quick hare
To produce the hare, we need color cardboard, wadded disks, black beads for the eyes, pieces of blue and red felt, scissors and glue.
Our hare will consist of a trunk, 2 ears and 4 paws. Also we need to cut out the cheeks (two teardrop-shaped cuttings). First on the cardboard we glue the first element - the torso of the hare, a whole cotton disc. Then we glue the face - the disk needs to be cut to make a circle with a slightly smaller diameter than the trunk. To the person we paste cheeks, and also cut from pieces of felt blue eyes, a red mouth and a spout. Further we glue ears and feet. The presentation of the works is visible in the photo.
From the remnants of cotton-wool discs, it is possible to cut out carrots or any other object, paint gouache and stick to the hand-grip.
