After making a coffee cup pin cushion I decided that I wanted some nice pins to go with it so I looked at my beads, did some experimenting and chose the ones I liked.  I also wanted to "jazz" up one of the pincushions without going overboard as a gift for my BF.  These are the results.  I hope you like them too.

I like the above best.




I just glued them onto pins using the e-6000 glue that I bought because of  a few members advice.  Thank you again.

Thank you archerpren and blindsided. 
I used e-6000 glue to adhear the beads on.
I "dipped" the tops of the pins into the glue then put the hole of the bead through then stuck the pin into a pin cushion all the way to the top where the bead is in order to hold the bead in place while it dried.  I waited for three days cause I hurriedly made them then went on holiday but I guess that 24 hrs is enough.  I've used them already and they are pretty sturdy so far.
I tried to take an action pic but it came out as usual terrible.

Thank you Avian Flight.  I have only just started to use it and find it very good to have around.  At least it doesn't roll around like my inherited apple one. I was inspired by karin's post from her tea cup pin cushion.

What a wonderful idea! And I love the little flower pins -- a perfect touch for the tea cup they're in. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you craftybeachgirl and boadicea.  They were really easy to do and so appreciated when I gave them away (I did keep one).  I'm now thinking of making more out of a Turkish coffee set that I also was given as a gift.
