The 90’s must really be back! I used to LOVE to make these daisy rings when I was in middle school and now I am making them with my girls (and one of them is starting middle school!)
These rings are so cute and very on trend with fashion right now. We love making them in all different colors and matching them to our outfits. They are so easy to make, so here’s how we do them!
Here’s what you need:
Seed beads. We found these at Michael’s. We love how they had an assortment of shiny and matte colors.
String. This is the tricky part. We had to try a couple of different types of string before we found the winner. You want string that is stretchy, and it also has to be 0.3mm or less. The beads are super small, so a larger mm string won’t work.
You also just need some scissors, and that’s it. Oh, and you’ll need some patience because these rings take some practice.
Ok, I’m switching over to my coffee table because the string was invisible on my usual laundry room counter top. Yes, that’s where I take my pics. There’s really good lighting in there! haha
First thing you want to do is measure out your string. It’s better to have too much than not enough. I do about 8 inches.
Select your bead colors. We chose red, purple, and blue. Red will be the petals, purple on the inside of the flower, and blue for the spacers.
Start off with the center of the flower. We wanted that to be purple, so put that bead on first. Then, place three petal beads on next to it.
Take the right side of the string and put it through the last petal that you put on, and pull it tight.
This is what it will look like when you pull it tight, it makes one half of the flower. Next, add three more petal beads on the left.
Now you’re going to take the string from the left side, and loop it through the top petal. Pull tight!
It makes a little flower! Now, add three spacer beads and repeat the flower.
Here is what you have at the end! I find that doing 5 flowers with spacers and a few extra spacers at the end gives me a perfect fit. I wear ring sizes 5-7 on my fingers.
Tie the ends a few times (we triple knot) and trim the ends, and there you go! A cute little daisy ring.
We make these three different ways, the flowers with the spacers, flowers with no spacers, and then one flower with the rest spacers.
My girls and I have so much fun making these! We hope you will love making them too!
