Little Acorn Pin or Pendant
1. Thread a length of thick wire thru the large boho bead.
2. Create a small loop at the bottom.
3. Leave about 1/2" of the thick wire at the top to create a stem. Make a small loop at the top.
4. With the skinny wire wrap the stem tightly to hold in place. Make another decorative loop from the end.
5. Use skinny jute cord and the hot glue gun to wrap the top of the bead. This will create the acorn cap.
