Sarah's December Make N Take

Hello there. I hope everyone is having a great December so far. Just think, in a few weeks the days will start getting longer again and we will be playing with all our fun christmas gifts! Hopefully in between the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping and baking you will have a little time to create something scrappy. If you do here is a very quick way to decorate pins. I call all pins t-pins because really I don't know the difference between them. But I will just call them pins here. OK, so here goes:

1. Gather your supplies-
You will need pins, beads of different colors and sizes, and a strong liquid adhesive like glossy accents or diamond glaze. I bought the pins and beads at a Joann's when they were 50% off.

2. Thread the beads on the pins in the desired arrangement.

4. On the bottom of the last bead add a little of the adhesive covering the entire opening of the bead and let dry.

5. These are different pins I made. You can embellish them with ribbons or other accents.

And here is a card I used one of the pins on.

We would love to see your own decorated pins! Thanks- Sarah


  1. What a splendid idea. I would have never though of this. Those little pins are expensive to buy but I'm sure these are so cheap to make.

    Thanks so much for sharing this great idea.

  2. I love this idea so much! I need to remember to do that! Thanks Sarah!

  3. That is TOO cute! Thanks for sharing Sarah!

  4. Wow, I've always loved when people sent me these pins. Thanks for showing how easy it is. I'm gonna have to give this a try when I get low on my pins!

  5. WOWZA Sarah what an awesome idea-cant wait to try it!


Thanks for being SIMPLY OBSESSED!
