Fresh as a Daisy
Inspired by the idea of fields full of daisies, these little daisy rings bring color and simplicity together to create a fun bead craft that's fresh as a daisy.
What You'll Need:
- 6 inches of stretchy beading cord
- 10 aqua seed beads
- 1 yellow E bead
- 10 to 15 yellow seed beads
- 10 to 15 clear seed beads
- 1 small gold-tone crimp bead
- Needle-nose pliers
Step 1: Tie a knot two inches from one end of the stretchy beading cord. Thread the other end of the cord through a needle.
Step 2: String 10 aqua seed beads onto the cord, then pass the end of your needle back through the first bead, making a circle. Thread on a yellow E bead, and place it in the center of the seed bead circle. Pass the cord through the fifth seed bead, and pull gently.
Step 3: Cut off the needle and the knot at the ends of your cord. Then alternate yellow and clear seed beads on each side of the flower until the ring is the size you want.
Step 4: When you've made your ring to the right size, string on one more seed bead, then pull both ends of the cord through the crimp bead. Use your needle-nose pliers to close the crimp bead around the cord, and trim the ends.
