What was your inspiration?
I'm always looking for new and fun ways to use beads in push pins/thumb tacks. Some people even use them on their pin cushion.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Not everything lends itself to a "knob" on the top. This works because it looks like they are wearing hats!
