USA Flag Pins
American Spirit with these USA Flag Pins on 4th of July or Flag
Day. Decorated beautifully with Red, White and Blue beads, these
pins are extremely simple to make.
1 large safety pin (1-1/2 inches)
13 standard-size safety pins (1 inch)
Red (44), white (38), and blue (35) beads
seven standard-size safety pins by sliding five blue beads and
then a white bead, then a red, then white, then red onto the open
Be careful not to stick yourself.
Assemble six standard-size pins by sliding beads on in this order:
red, white, red, white, red, white, red, white, red for a total of
nine beads on each of the six
You'll begin and end with red. Assemble the final pin by sliding
the red, white, and blue pins onto the large safety pin.
Then slide on the remaining six red and white pins. To ensure that
your beaded pins will not fall off of the big pin, spring the
hinge on the big pin and slide the beaded pins around and place
them on the other side of the hinge.
It's almost like sliding a key onto a key chain.
Wear your American flag pin proudly.
