Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 long pipe cleaners (12 inches or more, if you only have the shorter ones, that’s ok! You can either twist two together to make a longer one, or just use smaller ones for a smaller flower)
  • Large beads (be sure the pipe cleaners will be able to fit though them)  I used mostly plastic pony beads, wood beads, and other larger beads from my stash.

Here’s how to make it!

  • Begin by twisting two pipe cleaners in the center to form an x shape.
  • Add the third pipe cleaner and then twist into the center as well.
  • Add beads to the first strand, leaving about a half inch to an inch un-beaded.
  • Bend strand downward toward the center of the flower and twist it with the strand next to it to secure–first petal done!
  •  Repeat to create all 6 petals of the flower.
  • Shape up as needed and use your beaded flower however you like-see the list above for some fun ideas!
