I love spring, and for most of us, it’s right around the corner. I love to see the flowers emerging from the ground, but here in Wisconsin, it’s sometimes through the snow.
Simple beaded flowers are always fun and easy to make, and you have the added benefit of enjoying them year round! With so many bead shapes and colors out there, the possibilities are endless. The flowers that I made represent just a sample of the beads that you can use, depending on the size and style of the flower that you want to make. This is a great way to use up some of your stash, or to try a new bead shape.
To make the flowers, I made a ring of the petal beads, and added a crystal, round bead, or seed bead to the center. The number of beads in the ring depends on the style of bead used. The beads should lay flat with little space between them when sewn into a ring. If desired, attach your flowers to a peyote stitch or right-angle weave base for a colorful garden palette.
Here are the flowers that I created and the beads I used in my flowers. What can you grow from your stash?
