This sweet and simple necklace celebrates beautiful flowers growing on a vine. Crocheted in leaf green and accented with coral glass beads, this is an easy project to get yourself crocheting with embroidery floss!
If you have never worked with beads on crochet before, be sure to scroll down and check out the helpful video, or just click here.
You can make yours any size you'd like, I made mine long enough to wrap around twice like this:
Or as a long single strand like this:
To make a Coral Blossom Necklace of your own, you'll need:
- Embroidery Floss (I used DMC floss in the #906 colorway)
- E (3.5 mm) Crochet Hook
- Embroidery Needle (I used a #24 Tapestry Needle) Note: be sure the eye of the needle can pass through each bead first.
- Beads of your choice (Beads shown are large glass seed beads)
- Your necklace can be as long or as short as you like simply by working more or less chains.
You'll begin by stringing the beads onto the floss with your needle,
Slip 5 (or how many "petals" you want on your flower) up against the hook,
and make one more chain,
then chain 8 more. Repeat this sequence (ch 8, slip beads, chain 1 more, chain 8, and so fortth),
Keep going until your necklace is as log as you'd like to be, ending with a chain 8.
Tip: If you didn't string enough beads, not to worry, just find the other end of the floss and string them onto that end.
Fasten off and tie the ends of the necklace together securely. Trim off ends and you're finished!
