Free Mini Tulip Beaded Banner

BASIC BEADED BANNER INSTRUCTIONS


MATERIALS NEEDED:
* Pony Beads - either the smaller 4x7mm beads or the larger 6x9mm beads.
* 4-ply yarn in color matching the background beads.
* #18 Tapestry needle (has a blunt end)
* Thin ribbon to hang banner - 18 inches in length
* Scissors

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:
Use 1-yard lengths of yarn at a time. Pull yarn tightly so beads fit snug, but not so tight that the beads curl and bend out of straight rows. Odd-numbered rows are worked right to left, even-numbered rows are worked left to right. Beads are added one at a time, then anchored in place by passing needle and yarn through the bead next to the new bead from the previous row. See below for close-up photos and step-by-step instructions.


Bead Instructions

Start from the top of the graph and string on the first 2 rows of beads at once. Leave a 6-inch tail at the left side of your work (you will weave this in later to secure it). Take your needle off the yarn and put the length of ribbon on the needle. Starting with the last bead, pull this ribbon through every other bead to make the first row of beads separate from the second row. Leave equal lengths of ribbon on each side, tie knot in top center, and then tie into a bow.

Bead Instructions

For the third row, put the long length of yarn back on needle and by stringing on one bead at a time, thread the first bead of row 3 on your yarn, then pass your needle and yarn through the bead to the left from the previous row 2. Continue on in this manner, adding one bead at a time, then passing needle and yarn through bead from previous row.

Bead Instructions

When you reach the end of row 3, take your needle off the yarn and put it on the 6-inch length that was left at this side. Weave that 6-inch length of yarn back through 5 or 6 beads to secure it, then trim off end.

Bead Instructions

Put the main length of yarn back on your needle. For each row that begins on the left side, you will need to first pass your needle and yarn through the yarn at the side of the rows from the previous row, and then back through the last bead, to then start your next row. String the first bead of row 4 on your yarn, then pass your needle and yarn through the bead to the right of this one from the previous row, and continue on to complete row 4.

Bead Instructions

When you need to add a new length of yarn, try to end in the middle of a row instead of on the end. Tie your new length of yarn to the old one with a double knot, trim the ends very close, and continue on, hiding the knot inside a bead.

Bead Instructions

HOW TO DECREASE:

Bead Instructions

(this is the same for either side, right or left)
String on the last bead for the row, then, instead of passing the yarn/cord through a bead, you will pass it around the cord directly above it (to the left when the last bead is on the left, or to the right when the last bead is on the right). Insert your needle up from behind the cord above the bead, and then back down to the front, tighten up the bead on the cord, then pass the cord back through the bead to begin the next row.
