Pony beads American Flag

Pony Bead American Flag ~ Reading Confetti

We have a huge bucket of them that I got from a rummage sale and she'll spend hours making necklaces for me.

And then sometimes this happens and they don't seem like such a good bargain after all.

Since she loves beads, and I love American flag crafts, we combined the two and made an American flag magnet from pony beads.
We used:
1 large craft stick
Fishing line
Red and white pony beads
Blue star beads
Tape

We made 9 strings of beads (tying the first bead to the fishing line to hold the others on). Five were alternating red and white with 13 beads total and four were 7 pony beads with 3 blue star beads on top.


I taped each string to the back of the craft stick and then used a little hot glue to make sure they were secure. At first I hung it from a ribbon but then we decided it needed to go on our fridge, so we glued some magnets to the back.
What do your kids make with beads? I need some ideas to use these things up so I don't have to keep picking them off the floor.
P.S. Make sure you don't do this craft with children who would put the beads in their mouths.

    • Children love making designs with pony beads as they are large and easy for small hands to work with. Follow these simple instructions to make an American flag design. The beading stitch is a very easy wrap that does not require the use of a needle. Stars are not depicted in this pattern, but you can substitute white beads for some of the blue ones to include stars in your pony bead flags.
