How to make cactus with beads. Free beading pattern.

You can learn how to make beaded jewelry for free .A warm welcome to all beginners starting their jewelry making journey!



Materials:
Green seed beads size 11/0
Brass wire 28 ga
Wire-cutter
Arranger
Clay pot
Glue (glue gun with plastic sticks)

1. String a large amount of beads (size 11/0) on a spool wire (28 ga). Slipping the first 5 beads, insert wire through the next 5 beads, and tighten. Leave about 1 inch of loose wire from one end and 1/4; in. from another. Cut the wire. Now, you have 1 thorn.







2. Repeat step1… Join 3 thorns together twisting long ends. Be patient: I made more than 100 bundles of thorns for my little cactus!


3. I used ball arranger as a base for my cactus (diameter -1 3/4 in =4.5 cm), attached it to the clay pot with a glue- gun... Stick bundles into the arranger.





4. If you wish, you can make beaded flowers and stick them into the top of cactus.
