About the French Beaded Marigold
I have written the instructions with lots of step-by-step photos. So, you can see exactly how I made my flowers. I have also included the colouring I used for all my plants – including the variegated flower.
The instructions do assume that you are already familiar with the techniques. But if this is not the case, don’t worry. I have free tutorials that you can download from this website.
You might also want to grab a copy of my ebook, ‘Bead Flowers and Wedding Bouquets’. This includes video demonstrations of all the techniques. So, it is a fabulous learning tool – like having me in your craft room teaching you in person! To see what I mean, take a look at one of the videos in the ebook here>>
So, this is a really fun flower to make. It looks very impressive and it will give a great splash of colour in a little pot!
