First, find designs you want for your pin. You can either draw them out and get creative or simply just print out the designs you want. But make sure to enlarge them because they will shrink!

Once they are done baking take the tray out of the oven and the foil with the designs off of the tray to let it cool down for 1 minute. After the cooling process, paint the back of any designs that needs to be painted and let it dry for 30 minutes.

Next, take the twine and wrap it around your wrist to measure out the length but add a few inches. Then, cut the twine from your measurements and cut in one more time in half.

Insert the twine in one hole then tie a knot. Do the same steps to the other side. The last step is to tie a knot to both ends to connect them!
