Using bead needle, string 5 beads and push them down yarn against flower, then loop needle and yarn around base of stitch. Repeat this, adding a loop of 5 beads around the base of each of the six stitches in the final row of the smaller hexagon.

Sew leaf to back of flower and darn in ends. Sew brooch pin to back of flower towards the top of the larger hexagon. Enjoy!
