USA Flag Pin for the 4th of July
This is by no means a new craft idea. As a matter of fact, I can remember making them by the dozens after that tragic day in September 2001.
I do think it is still a great craft idea so that is why I have chosen to share a tutorial for it!
You still have time to make some for favors for your July 4th barbecue!!
Start with 11 safety pins and seed beads in red white and blue
First you need to wind 10 of the safety pins onto the back side of the last pin. You will need to force them around the loop at the end. Be sure that all of your pins are facing the same way as you wind them on. If they are in different directions, the beads will not be placed on the same sides and the flag will not come out correctly.
Add the beads to the pin as shown above, close the pin.
