How to make a topiary of coffee beans?

What is needed for needlework?

InstrumentsAny master class includes the creation of the base-crown, trunk and decoration. To make a tree of happiness from coffee with your own hands, you need the following set:

  • 100-250 gr. coffee beans;
  • small capacity (flower pot, plastic or glass cup, cup);
  • a ball of foam, plastic or newspaper to create it;
  • black or brown thread and twine;
  • wooden branch, skewers or wire;
  • super glue or glue gun;
  • packing cotton pads;
  • brown paint;
  • gypsum;
  • scissors.
To later decorate the finished tree of well-being from coffee beans, it may be useful: beads, satin ribbons, cinnamon sticks, burlap, brush for whitewashing, and similar things that every house probably has.

How to make a crown?

Ball of newspapersLike any other workshop on the creation of decorative trees, this begins with the preparation of the base - the crown.Depending on what size and shape of the coffee topiary you would like to receive, we offer three possible options for its production.

  1. Crown round shape can be made of plastic or foam ball, which can be purchased at florist stores. It is also quite possible to do it yourself from the newspaper. To do this, you need one or more newspapers, which will need to be crumpled to the required size and wrapped in threads.Coffee flowerThen smear with glue and leave to dry. In the end, it will look like in the photo.
  2. If you are planning to make a coffee topiary with a figured flat crown, the master class begins with the formation of a cardboard blank. For example, if you want to make a tree of well-being from coffee beans in the form of a heart or a flower, as in the following photo, you need to cut the desired size of the figure. It will become the base for fixing the stem and coffee beans.
  3. Base for topiariyaA master class on making volumetric hearts begins, like the previous one. However, in this case, you will need not only cardboard, but also cotton pads. Initially, you will need to cut a heart out of cardboard, after which it will put disks of cotton wool on it. Their number depends on the volume that you would like to see in the finished product.In general, there should be a base similar to that shown in the photo.

Further manufacturing process of topiary

Coffee TopiaryHaving prepared the necessary foundation that will become the crown of the decorative tree of happiness, you can continue the process. And at this stage the master class will tell you how and from what to make the trunk of the future product. And also how it can be attached based on the materials at hand.

If your coffee beans topiary has a trunk from a branch, then it must be dried in advance and cleaned of bark. Then, if desired, paint, varnish or wrap with satin ribbon or twine. The same can be done with skewers, wooden sticks.

If you want the topiary of coffee beans to look more impressive, use wire. It is desirable that it was large enough in diameter and at the same time easily bent. This will allow you to set any curly shape with your own hands.

If you use a foam ball as a base, this greatly simplifies the process.
Indeed, in this case, simply connect the trunk with the crown, sticking it into the workpiece. Those who wish to use a plastic ball will have to work hard to secure the topiary.To do this, you first need to do a hole with your own hands, corresponding to the diameter of the trunk (sticks, wire). Connect these parts can be using super-glue or tape.

Coffee TopiaryA master class with the manufacture of a well-being ornamental tree with a base from a newspaper ball provides for more labor-intensive work. To begin with, the surface of the blank is fully coated with glue and we are waiting for it to dry. Then we make a hole in which a tree trunk will be placed, and pour glue (PVA) into it. After inserting a twig or skewers into the hole, leave the blank again until it is completely dry. Wire to a similar basis also will attach tape.

Finished blanks in the form of a crown with a barrel will need to be installed in a container prepared in advance (cup, cup, flower pot) and filled with gypsum solution. Although this material freezes quite quickly, it is advisable to hold the base for a while. So you are guaranteed to get the perfect product with a smooth barrel.

The final stage of manufacturing topiariya

HeartIn the future, a master class on making wood of happiness from coffee beans tells how to decorate a product.We start with the fact that we paint the base. The crown itself, on which we will glue the coffee beans, is preferably treated with brown paint. Applying this option can save material. In particular, you do not have to buy a large amount of coffee beans to glue them in two layers. Due to the dark paint, there will be no gaps, and the coffee topiary will be unusually beautiful.

Now we begin to paste over the tree of well-being with coffee beans. For these purposes, you can use super glue or glue gun. Choosing the latter method, you need to purchase black silicone sticks in advance. Thus, the connecting material will not be noticeable, and the attractive appearance of the product will remain. In the end, the simplest coffee topiary can get such a look, as in the photo.

Little treeHappiness tree trunk can be painted, decorated with satin ribbon or twine. By the way, the latter option is considered more harmonious and is combined with the general theme of the product. However, if you do your own topiary of coffee beans with a curly-shaped barrel, better decorate it beforehand.For convenience, it is recommended to wrap it with twine before connecting to the crown.

Regarding capacity, it can also be painted. This option is suitable if a cup or cup is used as a container. However, many prefer to more effectively draw capacity. For example, you can glue them with fibers from a whitewash brush, skewers, or wrap them in a piece of sackcloth.

In most cases, gypsum is also decorated with coffee beans. To fix them, you can use PVA glue, which is worth adding brown acrylic paint.
Pouring a small layer of the resulting mixture on the dried plaster, lay out the beautiful grains. On top you can attach a pair of cinnamon sticks. In the absence of a similar material, use the same fibers from a brush for whitewashing, beads, silk, or other floral material. It is a little imagination - and the topiary from coffee is ready.

How to make a "flying cup"?

Coffee cup beansThis master class is held to teach needlewomen the technique of making soaring cups of coffee beans. This crafts, as well as topiary, will amaze with originality and can be a wonderful gift for any celebration.In this case, it is made quite simple, and a set for needlework will need almost the same.

In order to do a “flying cup” of coffee beans with your own hands at home, the following items will be useful:

  • 200 gr. coffee beans;
  • cup with saucer;
  • wire;
  • polyurethane foam;
  • super glue or glue gun;
  • decor

As well as a master class on making a tree of well-being, this one begins with the execution of a blank. To do this, take a few pieces of wire of the same length and wrap them tightly with string. For reliable fixation, you can use a glue gun. When the base is ready, it must be bent in the shape of the letter S.

To make a cup with the effect of "floating in the air" from the coffee beans, one end (upper) should be smeared well with super glue and attached to the inside of the vessel.
The lower end, also considerably wetted with glue, is fixed to the middle of the saucer. After that, we begin to decorate the craft with our own hands, using the "coffee" material. In order to make the craft look bigger and more effective, the wire can be covered with foam from above. And when it freezes, trim to give the necessary shape and paint with dark paint.

In the end, paste over all the coffee beans, decorate, and an unusual cup is ready.
