Patriotic American Flag Pin

Patriotic American Flag Pin ~ Fun Project!

This patriotic American flag project is the perfect craft for kids and adults. It's easy, inexpensive,
and a great way to show off your national pride. You and the kids can do it together and have the opportunity
to discuss national events or simply enjoy each other's company.

1 large safety pin (1-1/2 inches)
13 standard-size safety pins (1 inch)
Red (44), white (38), and blue (35) beads

1. Assemble 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 pin.
2. 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 pins. You'll begin and end with red.
3. 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.
4. 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.
