When I ask the girls what color beads they want, they always respond “rainbow.” Using our same box of beads, we have come up with different patterns in order to keep their braids looking different each time.
There is no pattern here. I literally pick beads from a bag and let it create
whatever pattern. The only consistency is the number of beads on each braid.
2. More Randomness
Another random color scheme that still looks cute.
3. Primary Color
Purple was our primary color here. The pattern included a total of 5 beads.
4. One Color: White
Here they are all white. We played around with shapes, but kept the beads the same color.
5. One Color: Blue
6. One Color: Yellow
I like to match the girls patterns but give them different colors. This layered pattern includes...
8. Random Color Scheme
We chose three colors and randomly arranged them on the braids. We also played with shapes.
9. Rainbow Braids
Each braid has a different color, but the same pattern and same number of beads. For example...
1 white, 3 orange, 1 white, 3 orange, 1 white
1 white, 3 blue, 1 white, 3 blue, 1 white
1 white, 3 pink, 1 white, 3 pink, 1 white
1 white, 3 green, 1 white, 3 green, 1 white
and so on...
10. Start and End With Same Color
In this pattern, we did one bead of each color and started and ended with orange.
1 orange, 1 blue, 1 yellow, 1 pink, 1 white, 1 grey, 1 orange
11. Black Beads With A Hint Of Color
Our girls love color, so although the main color is black in this pattern, we put a different color bead on the ends.
5 black, 1 pink
5 black, 1 blue
5 black, 1 yellow
5 black, 1 white
12. Repeating Color Pattern
This simple pattern has three colors ... white, blue, teal, white, blue, teal.
13. Pink and Orange
In this pattern there are 5 pinks beads and 1 orange.
14. Purple Lovers
The theme of this color scheme was tones of purple. We used...
3 purple, 2 light purple, 1 pink, 1 blue, 1 white.
15. Top Heavy
This pattern has 3 pink, 1 white, 2 yellow.
16. Mixed Materials
These wood beads did not come with the box of beads. But I mixed them with plastic beads to give an earth tone look.
