1. beads of your choice
2. pony tail holder
3. wire- I like the heavier wire as it holds the shape better
4. round disk (see photo below)
5. hot glue
These disks I use to make flowers are probably something you can go without, but I like to use them as a sturdy base. I found them at Michaels years ago. They were a clip on earring in the jewelry department. I clipped off all the clip on parts.
When you have gone all the way around, you end up with something like this.
Glue on the gem in the center, then flip over the flower and put a good amount of hot glue on the back.
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
