French Beaded Daffodil Pattern
This French beaded daffodil pattern includes a full guide to the three techniques that you will be using to make the flower.
All the step-by-step instructions are illustrated with a mixture of photos and diagrams. However,if you are new to French beading, you may also like to use the video demonstrations of the techniques in my book, ‘Bead Flowers and Wedding Bouquets‘.
Materials and Techniques
You will need size 11 Matsuno seed beads in two shades of yellow/orange to make the daffodil flower. Plus green beads for the leaves.
The French beaded daffodil pattern instructions assume that you will be using a bead spinner to thread your beads. Alternatively, you can just as easily thread everything by hand to start with.
This is one of the patterns that I developed early on in my designing career. So, it is accessible to all levels. It will also give you a good overview of the different types of techniques you can use to make French beaded flowers.
In addition to the beads, you will need coloured craft wire to match or tone with your beads. I also used some floral stem tape, some stiffer lengths of wire and some embroidery silk. These finish the stems of your French Beaded flowers. I sell all of these supplies at very competitive prices. So, if there is anything that you need, just check out the beading supplies department.
This French Beaded daffodil pattern makes wonderful flowers to display on their own. You can also combine them with iris, snowdrops or other spring flowers. So, why not create a permanent display of Spring all year round?!
