- 8 inch red pipe cleaner
- lacy ribbon, approximately 3/4 inch wide
- red tri-beads
- small length of ribbon for the bow
- fine wire
- pin backing of choice
1. Begin the pin by threading a red tri-bead on to the pipe
cleaner. Next, thread the ribbon on to the pipe cleaner,
through one of the lacy holes. Follow with another red
tri-bead. Work near the end of the pipe cleaner, for easier
threading. Continue by threading the ribbon on again, as shown below.
2. Continue threading until you have most of the pipe cleaner
covered. Below are close ups of how the pipe cleaner should
look from the side, and from the top.
When most of the pipe cleaner is threaded, wrap the remaining
pipe cleaner tightly around the last tri-bead to secure it.
Bend the pipe cleaner in the shape of a heart, and secure the
ends by wrapping the last tri-beads together with a thin piece of wire.
Add a small bow to the pin. This can be secured with a fine
wire or some glue. Add on the pin back and the beaded heart
pin is ready to wear!
