When I was preparing for my daughter’s (and my troop’s) last Daisy meeting, I wanted to give them a little craft project that was quick and easy to make at the meeting or over the summer. I found some cute bridging troop number swap kits at Making Friends, but it was way too late in the game for me to buy something, and I didn’t need 30 of them, so this is my DIY version.

If you want beads to represent each of the Daisy petals you will need 11 colors total:

  • red
  • orange
  • yellow
  • light green
  • dark green
  • light blue
  • dark blue
  • light purple
  • dark purple
  • light pink
  • hot pink

If you want to just make a rainbow, use

  • red
  • orange
  • yellow
  • green
  • blue
  • purple

I put two of each color of bead into my rainbow beaded pin kit because I thought they might like the option of making a bracelet instead/also.

Assembling the Rainbow Beaded Pin Kit Rainbow beaded pin kit DIY for Daisy Girl Scouts, rainbow parties and more.

  1. For each kit you’ll need the full set of beads you want to use, a pipe cleaner, a safety pin and the printout of the Daisy petals, if using.
  2. Put all in a snack-size zip bag.
  3. Make as many as you need. I had eight (nine, really, because I made a sample of the pin, too) and still had plenty of beads left over. If you need a huge quantity, buy more beads.

  5. Wrap the other end of the pipe cleaner around this end of the pipe cleaner and trim.

I love these little pins and that they will be a reminder to the girls of the year we’ve spent together.
