These beaded daisy chain necklaces have been popping up at stores everywhere, but you can easily make your own at home.  These are a great summer craft for kids, teens and adults.  Whether you’re on vacation or summer staycation this step by step tutorial will walk you through each step.

What You’ll Need
Size 8/0 seed beads in 3 colors (1 color for spacer beads, 1 color for petal beads and 1 color for center bead) check out this kit with some of the supplies included!
Beading thread 
Big eye beading needle
Jewelry clasps  (i used a lobster clasp and a connection tag)
Pair of scissors

Choose your bead colors and pattern.  You’ll need one color for the spacer beads, another for the petal beads and a third for the bead in the center of the flowers. 

I used blue spacer beads and chose to have the flowers farther apart using 7 spacer beads in between each flower. If you want more flowers on your necklace, use less spacer beads in between flowers. I chose white beads for the petal beads and yellow for the center of each flower. 

Cut about 4-5 feet of beading thread.  

Thread your needle and add the lobster clasp to the end of the thread.

Secure the lobster clasp with a knot to the end of the thread.

Now let’s make that flower! Take your beading needle back through the first petal color bead.

Pull the needle through and the beads will start to loop around.

Add three more petal color beads.

Thread the beading needle back through the last petal bead right next to the center bead. 

You might have to tug the beading thread a little and work the beads to get the flower to sit tightly next to the spacer beads.

Add 4 more petal beads and one center bead.
