How to Make a Colorful Paper Parrot

DIY Colorful Paper Parrot:

Required Materials:

  • scissors
  • glue
  • a simple pencil
  • white solid sheet of paper in A3 format
  • colored paper.

Step-by-step execution instruction:

1. Preparing tools and materials. It is better to use colored paper intended for office equipment.

2. Fold out a white sheet of paper and glue. From the top cut about 8 cm (body). 3. We take 4 colors of paper, cut the strips and add them to the accordion, to cut out several feathers at once. Cut the edges and bend them to the top. 4. Using a pair of scissors, the edges of the feathers slightly curl. And then the pen itself.

5. Top the body pasted with a strip of yellow paper (head). Then we paste the feathers in rows. Each row has about 10 feathers. For the breast, you can make one white feather. 6. From two circles with a diameter of 7 cm we make a plumage around the eyes. Cut and bend the edges in the same way as the feathers. From black paper, we cut out our eyes with cilia, we also bend our eyelashes. Eyes glued in the middle of the plumage.

7. According to the scheme, we cut out the blanks for the beak. 8. We glue the upper part of the beak so that two corners of the square coincide. 9. To the parrot’s head we glue the eyes, the upper and lower parts of the beak.  10. Under the scheme, we cut out the paws, we make folds to obtain the volume. 11. Cut from the white paper 2 wings for the wings, then the feathers of colored paper according to the scheme, bend them in half. 12. The end is cut and glued so that they turn out to be three-dimensional. 13. The other end is smeared with glue and glued to the base in rows. Finished wings are glued to the sides of the parrot. 14. We cut 3 strips 5 cm wide from colored paper for a tuft. We cut, bend, slightly curl similarly to feathers. 15. Two identical strips are glued first front, then back so that they form a cross on top. The third strip is glued in front and back in the middle on top of the other two. 16. Using the scissors, bend the ends of the tuft from behind.  17. From different colors of paper cut strips (about 8 pieces, you can have different lengths) and make a tail. We cut and bend the strips similarly to a tuft. We glue behind the body. From the front, we glue the paws. Our parrot is ready !!

How to make bullion rose for kurti neck

There are probably as many ways to make a bullion rose as there are people making them. I would like to include my take on the classic spiral bullion. These instructions are for big chunky roses as shown on the kurti.

Spiral Bullion Rose:
-work with three strands of floss and a # 7 milliners needle

-it is helpful to interface the area behind the embroidery

-use three colors of floss plus a green. Use a contrast for the center and two shades of pink or red (a light and a

-medium shade) for the spiral rose petals. Use the darker shade for the center fifteen wrap spiral bullions and

-the lighter shade for the outer twenty-two wrap spiral bullions.

-the spiral bullion is made in four sections (colors):

-center – one, five wrap bullion and two, ten wrap bullions

-inner petals – six, fifteen wrap spirals

-outer petals – eight, twenty-two wrap spirals

-leaf base – four, twenty-four wrap spirals

How to make spot painted jars

How to make spot painted jars

For work we will need:
– oilcloth;
– Paint on glass – black;
– circuits on the glass – gold, bronze, purple, metallic purple, dark red, green, metallic green, metallic purple, light gold, red, bright gold;
– acrylic lacquer;
– Painting tape;
– a white pencil;
– alcohol and cotton wool;
– album sheet;
– a simple pencil;
– scissors;
– foam rubber;
– good mood and desire – is not discussed

We soak the jar in water with any detergent solution to remove the labels. We rub it with alcohol until the squeak. We paste the masking tape with the top of the jar, where the carving is, so that the paint does not accidentally get there.

It will not be exactly straight, but it’s not scary, because everything is leveled by dots. Now take the black paint on the glass. I took Dekal. Foam, apply the paint on the rest of the surface. Do not hurry and “poke” until the “orange peel” disappears.

We put to dry up the bottom.

When it dries, apply the second layer just as gently. In order not to leave the gaps, look inside the jars – so everything is noticeable. We remove the paint tape.

Again leave for a good drying … Dry it. We cover with a varnish on one layer. If the lacquer is thick, a little (not more than 10%!) Dilute with water. We dry very well.

Now determine the pattern. I am marking the edges of the thickenings with dots.

I measure the circumference of a paper strip, cut off excess.

I fold the strip so that I get 6 identical parts – applying this strip, we divide the picture into parts without calculations.

Ruler measure the middle part of the jar – from thickening to thickening. I transfer all these dimensions to paper and sketch the drawing.

So, the varnish has dried up, and you can start drawing the picture on the background. With a white pencil I trace all the lines and carefully put the sheet to the jar, iron it to print, and also carefully remove it. The figure is clearly visible.

Here now begins the most interesting. Painting. For a basis I shall take gold that it was combined with color of a cover – it is good in itself, and consequently I will not touch it.

I take a gold color outline and apply points along the lines of large droplet elements.

Small curls – bronze, and inside the large drops in a checkerboard pattern I go through the points of bright gold (Pebeo).

I leave to dry. After it dries well, I take a cotton swab and erase the pencil markings – it is no longer needed.

Again we pass to the drops. Then I work on the peephole, without marking. If you do not trust yourself, then you can draw a line with a pencil. Inside the big drops, we make smaller drops, but now the outer line of the points is bright gold, and the inner line is gold. The curls inside are either poured or densely punctured by a purple metallic.

When everything is dry, take the purple outline and do the finishing touches. If you do not wait until it dries, you can accidentally touch and damage the gold points – it will be ugly.

Inside, make out big and small dots of green, purple and dark red. Between the curls the remaining space occupies one more point – in the center and two smaller – along the edges, also of a dark red color.

We pass to the marking of thickenings – in the photo above you can see how I noticed the thickening on the jar in the beginning of the work. Here, using this markup, we make gold chains on the whole circle from above and below.

If you do not rely on your eye, then you can make a markup, and I’m by eye – the upper and lower bands divide into triangles. In the triangles I put dots – on the top – violet and green, and from below the petals and dots – in the photo it is visible. From below I use purple and green metallic, dark red and gold.

We can decorate the jar. At the bottoms of the drops we put two gold points, and on both sides of the wide part of the drops there are red dots with two petals (in the photographs below it is visible)

You can go to the bottom. We turn the jar and along the golden chain of points we make a purple (metallic) chessboard and then gold again. Three more of the same series is done directly at the very bottom. The ideal circle can not turn out because of convex bukovok on the jar (I’m from under Cibo)

Now fill the bottom with an arbitrary pattern, and between the triple chains make the purple strokes. Leave to dry.

We had only to decorate the upper edge, where the paint tape was glued. Let’s go too with a purple and gold chain of dots – and the edge will turn out neat and smooth.
Who likes to shine, can glitterom put on 3-5 points on the curls.

After drying, we cover the jar with a protective varnish (if desired). Here’s what happened as a result

The husband has adapted this jar to his coffee, carries it to work).

I hope that somebody will come in handy for a master class. Create with pleasure!
