It has long been known that such a ribbon denotes two states, death and resurrection, or rather these two colors, orange and black.

There are several ways to tie such an attribute; it dates back to the reign of Catherine II. It was then that soldiers and wars were awarded such a gift and this is how you could tie this detail on your attire.

I think you will be surprised now when you see this picture, but at the same time you will know, and perhaps practice at home in advance.

But that’s not all, it’s not enough to be able to fold the tape this way, you also need to know where and in what places it can be placed.

There are prohibited areas of the body where, according to new recommendations, this attribute should not be applied. Look at the picture and remember.

Well, of course, you can not just take and attach such beauty, but somehow decorate and design it in a cool way so that it attracts the eye. This is exactly what we will talk about next.

DIY St. George ribbon made from ribbons using the kanzashi technique

Undoubtedly, for the holiday this sign of honor of clothing can be secured in a special and more effective way. If you are also a creative person, then please pay attention to such a product. It can be done in 1 hour, it can be done by a child, but only by an adult, or it can be done by younger children, but only under the supervision of elders. Because some parts are melted here.

You'll get a cool brooch in the shape of a three-dimensional star, I saw one like this last year, but I didn't think that it could be made so easily and quickly at home. Class! MK is taken from the Country of Mothers.

You will need:

  • tape by meter (width 35 mm) - 60 cm
  • brooch base - 1 pc.
  • pin - 1 pc.
  • rhinestones, beads, etc.
  • ruler
  • scissors
  • tweezers
  • candle or lighter
  • glue gun

Stages of work:

1. Take an orange and black ribbon and cut it into rectangular pieces, each shape should be 7 cm long.

2. Now, to make it convenient, you need to take tweezers. You can do without it, take eyebrow tweezers, and this is what we do, we bend the base so that the angle comes out, as you can see, as a straight line.

3. Then crumple it again, from right to left, and level the bottom part so that it comes out smooth.

4. Fold in half again.

5. What does it look like? I think it's a petal. Select the edges of the product.

6. And you have to set them on fire

7. This is how beautiful it will turn out. This is what the reverse side looks like.

8. To create a star, you will need to make 5 such templates, the main thing is that they are almost the same so that it looks perfect.

9. The rest of the tape, its length should be about 20 cm, trim the ends in the form of a greater and lesser sign on both sides. In other words, you should fold it in half and cut it at a 45 degree angle.

10. Next, place each end in the center and glue it together.

11. Glue or sew on the back side, depending on what base you have for the brooch. Thread a pin through.

12. Turn the workpiece over and, well, now glue the star or perhaps it will resemble a flower with a glue gun, and decorate the middle with any decor.

This beauty can be used as a pendant for a car; then, instead of the base for the brooch, you need to glue a satin ribbon. It will look like a keychain.

By the way, the middle can be done in this way, you can cheat it, decorate it with inscriptions that you can find on the Internet or download right now.

Next, print the finished templates on a color printer, cut them out and glue them to cardboard, and then the petals can be glued directly to such a blank.

You can print it on photo paper, it will look brighter and even more beautiful.

It will look unusual and very worthy at the holiday!

Here are some more ideas you can implement.

Such waves, or lambs, I don’t even know what to call such a craft, also made an impression on me. Like?

Or something similar, as they did in the first version.

Only here the fabric doesn’t bend so much, see for yourself.

You can do without glue and sew with a regular needle and thread. Some people are simply afraid of a glue gun, or perhaps they don’t have one yet. So, no big deal, consider this option then.

Another amazing design idea. Of course, more accurate measurements are needed here.

It still looks magical.

What crafts can you make with St. George's ribbon?

Crafts made from St. George ribbons are selected according to different criteria. Some choose exclusively according to the style and color of their clothes, others simply love flowers more than stars. Some love the classics, while others prefer the new and unusual.

  • St. George ribbons with carnations, tulips, lilacs and other flowers;
  • kanzashi stars;
  • kanzashi with a tricolor in the form of a flower, a spikelet or a white-blue-red tricolor;
  • kanzashi with spikelets of different colors - golden and black, green and gold, etc.;
  • kanzashi marshmallows;
  • kanzash decorated with various accessories - half beads, beads, stars.

We decorate the St. George ribbon easily and simply 2021

Now I offer step-by-step instructions, with the help of which you can teach children how to tie this little thing like this. After all, sometimes you want to show the children something unusual in kindergarten or, for example, in elementary school. So, just this case and take this idea as a basis.

Lay the strip of fabric horizontally in front of you.

Then, with your hands on each side, bring the ends towards the center. But before that, you still need to determine the middle.

This can be done by eye or using a regular ruler.

I think this will make a bow.

Yes, of course it is. Secure it with a pin or gently drip glue. You can sew it on, depending on what age group of children is gathered.

Or simply tie it with thread or satin ribbon.

The next option is more complicated, and it is already for older schoolchildren or for those who do needlework and love this skill. Make the petals first. The piece of fabric should be about 11 cm.

Use tweezers to pinch very tightly and bring it to the candle, slightly melting it.

Be careful with the fire; it is better to place the candle in a bowl or place it on a special stand.

Make exactly five of these things.

Glue them together with a glue gun to make a flower.

It looks more like an icon in the form of a five-pointed star.

All that remains is to complete it with any decorative decoration. For example, a rhinestone or a button.

Next to this blank is the rest of the tape folded in half. You can additionally cut out another circle of felt and first glue a strip to it, then a star.

And on the back side glue the clasp from the brooch.

The result was a souvenir in the form of the Order of Victory.

With flowers

Flowers on brooches made from St. George's ribbon look festive and create a spring mood. Try this ribbon craft.

You need to prepare in advance:

  • St. George ribbon, size 3.5*28 cm;
  • pink grosgrain ribbon, 1.2*117 cm (3 flowers);
  • green grosgrain ribbon, 1.2*25 (5 leaves);

  • felt base, diameter 4 cm;
  • pin;
  • beads, rhinestones, half-beads;
  • glue, scissors, thread, needle, lighter, tweezers.

The ribbon is folded into a loop with identical tails and glued from the inside.

The tails are cut at an angle and singed with a lighter to make the St. George ribbon look neat.

A glue strip is applied from the inside to connect the front and back of the craft.

The fastener is sewn to the felt base with several stitches to secure it well.

The felt base, on the other side, is smeared with glue and fixed on the wrong side of the ribbon blank.

6 pieces of 6.5 cm each are formed from pink ribbon. The edges are melted with a lighter.

The workpiece is folded in half, one edge is tucked in.

The folded edge is brought to the fold line and secured with a pin.

The second edge also turns up.

The free edge is thrown forward to the fold line and is also secured with a pin.

In this way, all 6 blanks are formed.

Along the bottom edge of each workpiece is grabbed with a white thread, and then if you carefully pull it, you get a delicate petal.

Each next petal must be sewn with the same thread, without breaking it, moving it towards the previous one.

When the last petal is hemmed, you need to remove the needle, pull up the free edges of the thread, tie them and trim off the excess. The petals need to be straightened.

A bead is attached to the center of the workpiece - with glue or a special nail.

A piece of green tape is made into a loop, the edges are folded in and singed.

4 more leaves are made in the same way.

Flowers and leaves are attached to the base using a glue gun.

This beautiful St. George ribbon is made with your own hands from simple available materials.

Step-by-step master classes on how to create a St. George ribbon in different styles with your own hands

Instead of buying ready-made paraphernalia, it is better to make a St. George’s ribbon from satin, using the capabilities of your own hands, as well as the recommendations of older comrades.

This practice for the younger generation will be a good help in developing creativity skills, as well as feasible assistance for adults.

And all this together will allow us to prepare for the celebration of May 9, to worthily celebrate the day memorable for veterans - the victory over fascism.

How to make a St. George ribbon from a satin ribbon for May 9

The process itself takes no more than an hour. First-graders, under the supervision of adults, are able to make bright, original badges to use themselves or as gifts. This will require a minimum of materials and tools .

How to make a St. George ribbon from paper?

Amazed? Surprised? But this option also exists. Paper is a material that is found in every home; it is not difficult to work with, and most importantly, it is always available.

Read this manual and repeat all the necessary steps.

Two-color ribbon decorated with flowers

Spring has come and brought with it a good mood and, of course, singing birds and blooming flowers. On Victory Day it is nice to give carnations and tulips to veterans. Therefore, I propose to make such creations this time.

In fact, you can make not only these flowers, I have seen that such brooches are decorated with forget-me-nots, roses and a sprig of lilac or apple blossom. Of course, this is the well-known kanzashi technique. Take a look at this selection of stories.

I think they will be useful to many, who are making this wonderful creation for the first time.

Great! Is not it? And most importantly, the author shows everything in detail.

Let's get to work, make a brooch with tulips, recommendations were given by Olga Ivanova.

This time take a wide satin ribbon, its width should be 5 cm. Using a ruler and pencil, make segments equal to 4 cm, cut the fabric into 9 parts. Cut each template in half.

The ends should be made in a semicircle; these will be the petals of the future flower.

Now you need to set the edges on fire so that they do not fluff.

Using your fingers, carefully form two folds at the bottom of the base, as if making a small accordion, and secure with fire. Use tweezers. You will need to make 18 such petals to make three tulips; each bud will require 6 blanks.

Next, decorate the thin wire with any green fabric or corrugated paper and twist it along the surface of the wire. Then use pliers to wrap the edge into a loop. The result is a stem.

Interesting! You can also wrap it with green threads, in general, use your ingenuity and imagination.

And into this rounding place small stamens (6-7 pieces) made of wire.

Now let's start assembling, complete the first row and decorate it with three petals. Glue them to each other in a circle.

Next, glue the next batch of three petals so that they stick together with the petals of that row.

Now we make the sepals, to do this, bend a piece of square green fabric 5 cm x 5 cm in such a way as if you were working with a sheet of paper and fold it in half diagonally twice, and then again. These actions are reminiscent of the process of folding a snowflake.

Next, cut and round and open the product, then heat the needle (hold it over the flame for 14 seconds) and pierce the workpiece. But, before that, don’t forget to treat the edges with a candle when your sepal is rolled up.

We put the resulting green beauty on the stem to the flower and glue it with a gun.

This is how we make all the other samples, and then connect everything with another sepal, and treat the stem with corrugated paper.

Now you need to make an elegant bow from a thin ribbon (12 mm). Take a fork and thread the end of the strip through like this. With the end you are not working, take it to the right side, and pass the working end into the center.

Then press it a little and pass the working ribbon again through the middle of the fork.

Tie a knot tightly with your hands.

All that remains now is to remove it.

And cut the ends at an angle of 45 degrees, and then melt each one so as not to fringe.

Do the same with the St. George ribbon itself, trim the ends and melt them.

Roll it into a figure eight and glue it together with the bouquet.

Also glue the base of the brooch to the back, that is, thread at least a small pin.

And finally, a stunning spring masterpiece with blooming tulips.

How to decorate the St. George ribbon with a beautiful spikelet of kanzashi

The kanzashi technique came to us from Japan. The petals, made of silk, were carefully folded and a unique miracle emerged. Let's together make a small work of art with our own hands to decorate the St. George ribbon.

We will need:

• St. George Ribbon; • satin ribbons in black and orange, matching the tone of the St. George ribbon; • tweezers; • black beads for decoration; • glue, you can use a hot glue gun; • scissors; • lighter, candle or small gas burner.

We cut the satin ribbons into squares with a side of 5 cm. In total, you need to make 7 elements of black color and fourteen of orange ribbon. We process the edges in a flame so that they do not unravel.

Take an orange square and fold it diagonally.

We fold the resulting triangle again, forming a sharp-shaped petal. We fix the element with tweezers.

We cut the edge with scissors and treat it with flame. The edges will stick together in this way. We take the workpiece lengthwise with tweezers. Cut off the bottom side with scissors. We melt the cut edges with a flame.

Similar to the first one, we make the remaining orange petals from all the prepared squares. At the next stage, take a black square. Fold diagonally. Then, take the orange petal and wrap it in a black triangle. Place another orange petal on top of the black element. We get a part consisting of three layers of satin ribbons.

We cut off the lower part and process the cut with a flame so that all edges are securely connected to each other.

By repeating the steps, we get seven sharp petals, each of which contains black and orange. Next, we collect the elements into a beautiful spikelet. We attach the petals to each other using hot glue. We form the central line from prepared decorative black beads.

At the next step we make a loop from the St. George ribbon. Glue a spikelet on top of it.

If you attach a fastening element to the reverse side, you will get an original brooch. A self-decorated St. George's ribbon can be used to decorate a gift for a loved one. The decoration will favorably emphasize the character of the owner at Victory Day celebrations and other patriotic holidays.

Tips from needlewomen

The following tips from experienced craftswomen will help you create a St. George ribbon with your own hands:

  1. When making a brooch for May 9 using the kanzashi “marshmallow” technique, the length of the ribbon can be more than 90 cm. It directly depends on the density of the ribbon. The thinner the material, the better it curls. If it is not possible to determine the exact length, take a strip with a reserve or make a brooch directly from a skein, unwinding it as you go and making a cut at the very end of the work process.
  2. Too lush kanzashi flowers on the St. George ribbon look out of place.
    Important! When sewing kanzashi marshmallow petals with tacks, you need to use the same needle and thread, without making new knots each time. To make the petals lie closer to each other, the thread is pulled up by first passing it through all the inner edges.
  3. To prevent the product from becoming deformed when the edges are scorched, the fire should not be brought too close. Also, deformation can occur with a very large flame.
  4. If the purpose of singeing the edges is not processing, but joining, it is important to pinch the edges a little with tweezers to make the joint tighter and more reliable.
  5. To make carnations, you can use not only braid, but also ordinary fabric, cut into strips of the appropriate length and width.
