About this French beaded flowers project:

Willow branches are so versatile. There are many varieties of willow trees and colors of the leaves can vary from light to dark green. Even the stems are interesting in that the stems can vary from gray, mustard yellow, light green, and even red.
Leaf placements can also vary depending on the variety, however, leaf shapes are generally the same. By learning this one leaf shape, you can recreate any willow varieties by varying bead colors, stem colors, and leaf sizes. Willow is a great filler for your other arrangements.


You can use whatever beads you wish but for your information, these are the beads I used:
• 11/0 Matsuno Dynamite transparent light green
• 11/0 Matusno Dynamite matte peacock green

For Color A mix: Mix in 2 grams of Color B to every 20 grams of color A.
