DIY Colorful Glass Bead Flowers

I love to make little pretty things for my garden, so even when the flowers start to fade in the summer heat I have something pretty to help add a touch of color to my plants.  This little touch of pretty is so easy and cheap you have to make them today.  So go get some glass beads and make some glass bead flowers!


Here is a video on how to make these fun glass flowers!



You start off by etching the glass beading in Etchall Dip n Etch solution to give the beads a tooth for the Sharpie to stick to so it will not wipe off.



The you color the beads that have been etched.  Mix and match the clear beads with colored one, and have some fun with the colors and designs.



Using a bamboo skewer as the stake, glue all the sections of the flower together with Supertite Multi-Grab 360 Glue.  It is water proof and has amazing hold.  Let the flowers set overnight for the best results.



Using 7 glass beads to make a flower, as one for the center and 6 surrounding it, there are so many options for color and design.  This is a simple one with e yellow center and pink petals.


You can also switch out the glass beads that are not etch and change up the colors for each petal for some fun.



On this one I made some fun designs on each petal with a mix of blue and black.



I love the feel of the different colors of green paired with the clear glass beads and the dots in the middle in black.



For this one I just mixed up a ton of fun colors my daughter picked out, she even helped me color the beads for this one!



I just love these I might keep them inside my by desk!!



They even look pretty with real flowers!!



So what crafty fun things do you do with glass beads?
