Supplies to make Flower Daisy Bracelets:
- Seed Beads size 8 is what I’m using
- Beeding needle
- Bead Tray (but check out Dollar Tree first!)
Let’s talk about supplies! The important part with daisy bracelets is that you have to double back through to make the flower. So the elastic has to be small enough and the seed beads need to be big enough. The ones I linked are what I found to work! The Elastic size is .5 mm.
And the size of the beads I prefer is size 8 seed beads!
To make doubling back through the beads a bit easier, I use a beading needle! It’s a bendy needle that’s pointy on both sides. The middle separates wide to put in the elastic. It’s optional to use and we won’t use these when we make these friendship bracelets when camping with my nieces, but it’s handy to have!
Another optional item is the beading tray. I found one at Dollar Tree! They are nice to have to keep the colors separated and have a little fuzz to keep beads in place. You can also measure out wrist sizes so you know exactly how big to make beaded bracelets or necklaces.
How to make beaded flowers Bracelets:
To start any beaded jewelry, I add a piece of tape to the end of the elastic. This keeps the beads from falling off but you can still move around instead of being stuck to a table!
I’m using the needle because frankly, it’s easier to see what I’m doing with it. But remember, you can do this without the needle! For this bracelet, I’m doing blue spacer beads with a white daisy and yellow center. I added my blue spacers beads and I’m ready to start the flower.
How to create the flower
Pick up 4 beads for the petals.
Pick up your flower center. Slide the 5 beads down.
Take the needle (or end of the elastic) and double back through the first white bead (petal). Pull it all the way through.
PUll until it’s nice and tight. The beads will make a circle shape.
Pick up 3 more beads (petals) and bring them down on the elastic.
Take your needle and you are going to double back through the bead that is right next to the center bead. (The bead that was part of the original 4 flower beads you put on first)
Pull the elastic and cinch it nice and tight. Then add your spacer beads or start your next daisy!
Then just bead and bead and bead and bead!
Variations of a flower bead bracelet
There are lots of different ways to create different looks with all the same supplies! Let me show you a few variations of the basic flower bracelet!
Number of flower beads
I made some beaded flowers with 5, 6, 7, and 8 beads! You can see what they look like in the image below.
I liked 5 beads flowers. Since it was a smaller flower, it pushed the center up a little. I didn’t love the 6 beads daisy. Every flower looks like it has a spot missing. Using 7 beads to make a flower is the norm, and I liked the look of it. 8 beaded flowers: This one is a little cheat-the Center is a bigger bead. So if you have a bigger bead for the middle, add a few more beads (petals!)
Check out the happy face below- Lots of beads to create the flower around it!
You can create a Daisy chain bracelet by doing flower after flower after flower. (The bottom bracelet in the picture below.)
You can add beads as spacers. Or do words with some flowers on the sides! An easy way to make friendship bracelets is just to add in words BFF with some cute beaded flowers!
I know I call these Daisies, but you could do any color combinations to create all different types of flowers! I love the sunflower ones with yellow and brown beads!
