Flag Lapel Pin (Safety Pin Jewelry)

A safety pin with beads in a flag pattern.

List of Supplies:

  • safety pins: 1 gold pin size #1 (measures 1 inch) and 10 gold pins size #00
  • beads: glass beads in red, white, and blue - Size 10MM

Directions

  1. Using the photos as a guide, spread the loop on the large gold pin and set aside.
  2. You will need a needle nose pliers and something to spread the loop end of your large safety pin. I find that a metal fingernail file works well for this, or perhaps a small letter holder.
  3. Using a nail file to open turned part of large pin. Spread area on large pin.

  4. Prepare the small pins with the appropriate color glass beads. Each pin holds 7 beads. (Note: Beads may vary slightly in size, so you may have to change a bead or two so they will fit.)
  5. Six of the pins will have red and white alternately. The remaining four will start with 3 blue followed by four white and red alternately.
  6. Individual pins to comprise flag.

  7. Arrange as in photo 4 and assemble your pin using the photos as your guide. Wear with pride!
