Cricut Circle Stick Pin Swap!

Hello!  I wanted to share today the stick pins that I made for this swap.  This was my first attempt at making stick pins.  It was really fun and easy!  I went with a Christmas type theme.  I love the lampwork beads!  And some of them remind me of Christmas cut rock candies we used to get as kids :-) 

3" pins
beads:  lampworks, bicones, round white, daisy spacers from Oriental Trading Co
other smaller beads are from Joanns

I applied Glossy Accents to secure the bottom couple of beads.  I then stuck them in a styrofoam ball to dry.  A word of caution if you try this, some of mine stuck to the styrofoam so you might want to use something else??  not sure what though :-)

Me & My Big Ideas "Christmas Carol" stack
Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cricut cart - tagpocket2 @ 6 1/2"

I punched the holes to stick the pins in before assembly.

Thanks for stopping by today :-)  And a big Thank You to all the Circlets that were in this swap and also for all the work that our hostess Sherry (aka JJewel) put into this :-)



  1. Lampbeads are my favorite!! I loved your bead sets. :) Thank you for being in the swap... think about Bead Swap 2--notice the new name!!! It's going to be crazy fun.

  2. Your stick pins are just awesome! I wish I had used lampbeads. They add so much dimension and texture. Great job!
