Cut 10 inches long plastic thread. Fold it in half and Insert it through the end of the bobby pin. Tie two knots on that end and make sure to keep both sides of the thread equal.

Hold both ends of the thread together and start threading beads into the thread. Use different kinds and colors of beads for a pretty pattern. Stop beading when the beads will reach the other end of the bobby pin.

Again tie a knot at that end. Wrap the remaining plastic thread around the bobby pin, between the beads and go all the way to the other end. When you reach the other end tie two tight knots and apply a drop of glue on the knot to make sure it is secure. Allow the glue to dry and trim extra thread carefully.

Make as many as you want, transform plain bobby pins into colorful beaded ones!
