INSTRUCTIONS

Take the stopper off the metal hat pin and thread on:

  • an 8mm rondelle glass crystal
  • a plain metal bead
  • a 6mm rondelle glass crystal
  • a plain metal bead
  • an 8mm rondelle glass crystal
  • an 8mm rondelle diamante spacer
  • a 9mm helix glass crystal

Using a toothpick, glue just under the last plain metal bead and quickly slide up the last 8mm rondelle glass crystal bead. Again, use the toothpick and glue just under the 8mm rondelle glass crystal bead that was just threaded on and quickly slide up the last plain metal bead. Replace the stopper on the end of the hat pin and let sit for 15 minutes.

Your hat pin can be stuck in the top of your hat to add an elegance to any occasion.
