Stick pins (aka Hat Pins)

I found a video in a Cafemom group explaining how to make stick pins. It is REALLY easy. I just bought some straight pins & glass seed beads from the fabric department at my local Wal-Mart. (I found the beads on sale for $1, I bought a couple packs!) You just add a little Glossy Accents to the end of the pin and slide the beads on. Every now and then add a little move Glossy Accents so the beads don't move. Put a tiny bit on the end, after the last bead. After the beads are on stick the pin into something where it can hang upside down to dry. You could lay it in a little bowl upside down...
They were super easy! Here are a couple pics... I've made more since the pic!

  1. Great Job!! I am glad you enjoyed the video:)

  2. I just made some of these recently too! I love them. You asked me a couple questions about my coloured babbles I made. If you send me a quick email I can reply with your answers :)
