I also stumbled upon a beautiful sketch on Pinterest and traced it back to Scrap Friends.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with this sketch and just wanted to say thank you for the inspiration :)
Here is the littlle tutorial as promised. Should you give it a try, please send me a link to your layout so I can admire your beautiful little "Delphiniums"...lol!
Seed beads (colour of your choice)
Cut a few pieces of wire in different lengths.
You now have to work relatively fast as hot glue dries very quickly. Heat up the glue gun. Take one strand of wire and adhere hot glue to one end of the strand. It looks very "blobby", but don't worry about that. I covered about 3.5cm with hot glue.
While the glue is still hot, dip it into your little bowl of seed beads and twirl it around so the beads can cover all the glue.
Whilst the glue is still warm, press the beads firmly into the glue using your fingers. If you find that not all the spots are covered, you can always just add an extra little bit of glue on those spots and then dip it back into the bowl of beads.
Gently remove any excess loose beads and this is what it should look like when it's nicely covered.
Now you can take a strip of florists tape and start winding it around the wire starting close up against the beads, working your way down.
I think they are just too cute and the nice thing about them is that there are no two that are the same. Have fun and I hope you enjoy making them as much as I did!!
I have the flu so I'm on my way back to bed and no doubt Miss Molly will join me :)
Till next week, take care and stay safe!! xx
