4th Of July Beaded Patriotic Pin

4th Of July Beaded Patriotic Pin

This 4th of July patriotic pin is a great festive holiday craft.

What you need

Pony Beads: red, white and blue
Two chenille stems
Hair pin


Thread approximately 27 pony beads on a chenille stem, in a red, white, and blue sequence.  (There is no right or wrong number of beads.  Place beads on the stem, but leave enough room at each end to be able to twist it to hold the circle together.)

Begin to form into a tight circle, and twist the end of the stem between two beads to hold the coil together.

Coil the entire length into a circle, and twist between two beads to hold the circle together.

Twist the same end of the stem around the top of a hair pin.

Cut another 1 inch piece of chenille stem, and twist it around one side of the hair pin  to hold the circle of beads on the hair pin.
