To create such a necklace from the foyimir you will need:

  • foiaran( in this example, chocolate, milk and coffee colors);
  • tight felt;
  • glue;
  • iron;
  • scissors;
  • toothpick or needle;
  • cotton swabs;
  • stationery knife;

The first stage in the creation of the necklace is the preparation of the basis to which all the decorative material will be attached.

Immediately to the basis of felt we attach the rep ribbon( you can choose different kinds of chains, leather bands and stuff).

The second stage in the creation of the necklace is the preparation of petals of flowers and leaves from the fameirana.

From foyamirana coffee and milk color, you need to cut the workpiece 2 to 1.5 centimeters, and from the chocolate - rectangles 4 to 2 centimeters.

Cut out the blanks from the cut pieces, as shown in the picture.

And from the rectangles we cut out the leaves. The edges of the leaves are made with thread carvings.

The third step in creating a necklace is the processing of all parts by heat( iron).

When the petal is processed with heat and has not yet cooled down, you need to twist it and bend it, as shown in the picture. So work out each petal.

When we treat the heat of the leaves with a toothpick or a needle on the heated foamire, draw the veins of the leaf.

The fourth and final stage in the creation of a necklace is the assembly of the main composition.

We start with the help of a cotton swab to form flowers. Twist the central petal and fix it with glue. All the petals are glued in staggered order.

So you need to make as many colors as you want to attach to the necklace. The size of the flowers can be just as diverse. You can repeat the entire master class, or you can create your own individual variant.

When the flower is finished, you need to cut off the excess part of the cotton swab with a clerical knife.

Composition is formed from all the ready-made flowers and leaves, it is preliminary worth simply attaching flowers to their future places. Do not rush to glue at once, because then it is more difficult to correct mistakes.

Gaps in the general picture can be decorated with any materials( beads, stamens, rhinestones and stuff).With the help of rhinestones on all colors, you can create droplets of dew.

Such a wonderful necklace will become a very original gift to a friend for a wedding.

Bath salt

We bring to your attention a master class on creating "bombs" for a bath of the simplest kitchen ingredients.

We will need a number of ingredients and equipment.


  • kitchen weights;
  • rubber gloves for protecting the skin of hands;
  • eye protection glasses;
  • kitchen sieve for sieving the mixture;
  • gauze dressing for mouth and respiratory protection;
  • vessel for mixing all ingredients;
  • sprayer with cold water;
  • Molds for forming a mixture.

Necessary ingredients:

  • 300 grams of fine soda or salt;
  • 150 grams of citric acid;
  • food colors of the desired colors;
  • 5 milliliters of aromatic or cosmetic oil( you can take simple table oils - olive, grape, sunflower).

It is best to make the data of "bombs" of small sizes, so that the mass is tight.

Soda or salt sift into a container through a sieve to get rid of all possible lumps.

Add to the main ingredient citric acid. Mix the loose components together.

Add to the loose oil mixture. If the mass in this process hisses, it must be mixed very quickly.

In this master-class the mixture is multicolored, you can make it monochrome or in tons selected yourself.

Divide the mixture into several containers, if there is not one color. Proceed to staining. It is necessary to interfere with the mixture with hands until it all becomes a homogeneous tone. Still need to try to do everything very quickly, so that the mixture does not settle and damp.

Use a sprinkler to add water, so that the mixture is kept together when stuccoing, but do not be too zealous. When a large amount of liquid is received, the mixture can begin to be shot, and in the end result simply to flow.

Fill in the desired pre-selected molds with the prepared mass. Wait until the mixture is tightly caked before removing it from the mold.

Leave the "bombs" removed from the molds for several hours to dry in a dry and warm place, then place them in gift wrapping.
