Method for weaving wheat knot flower vase
Here is the video tutorial for making this flower vase. The photo tutorial is below it.
Add all the cut wire pieces to the bangle. Add them in the order shown below ( Start with white, add 4 colors and then end with white).
Second batch added.
All 30 wire pieces added.
Using white running wire, start adding wheat knots. Each wheat knot will have 2 wires coming out of it. There will be 30 knots in this round.
Once the 1st round is over, start the second round above the 1st round.
Include the starting tail of the running wire in the first knot of the second round as shown below. This way, we don’t have to tuck in the tail end later.
Add 4 rounds of wheat knot and now it is time to increase the diameter.
So continue round 5 but this time, split the wires into two.
You can see the diameter increasing.
Appearance after 3 rounds.
The top view / inside view of vase will look like this.
Complete 6 rounds.
Now time to reduce the diameter. So join the wires two by two again and complete 4 round like this.
The diameter will reduce again.
Optional: Before reducing the diameter, you can add a metal ring that you can purchase from craft shops. This will help the flower vase’s wider portion maintain its shape.
4 rounds completed. Now, time to increase diameter again for the next 3 rounds.
3 rounds completed. Cut the running wire.
Split the wires into 5 batches. Start with white and end with white just like we added 5 batches to the bangle.
Start making box knots (link given above if you don’t know this knot).
Continue next line with wires that cross each other and you will have 5 triangles.
Insert the wires on the back side as shown below.
And weave the handles. (Link given above for rainbow handle).
End the handle with rubber band which will stop the handle from slipping out.
Insert the handles just below the line where the diameter increases.
Each batch will have 6 knots. Make sure that each of the 5 handles are in the middle of their batches – which means, in my case, the handles have to be inserted between the green and pink wires.
Tie the wires and trim if necessary. You can add beads or flowers to the these wires.
