French Beaded Zinnia & Hanging Amaranth

Description

Zinnias are a common garden flower that grow in so very many colors. Hanging Amaranth is a lovely draping filler flower that adds extra interest to the bouquet. In this class I will teach you how to make both flowers using seed beads and wire in the French Beading method.

The videos for this class are free, but I do have PDFs for both the Zinnia and Hanging Amaranth available to purchase in my shop.
