Friendship Pins

Make new friends with these friendship pins. Make up a batch to give give to friends at the end of summer, or the end of the school year, and keep a few on hand to give to new friends that you make along the way.

What You'll Need (for each pin):
  • 4 small safety pins
  • small beads

Step 3: Hand out your finished jewelry masterpieces, and show the world that real friends stick together!
