1. Squeeze a generous amount of hot glue on the flat pad of the bobby pin.
2. Place a 3mm pearl in the center of the pad.
3. Squeeze glue on all sides of the pearl bead.
4. Surround the 3mm pearl bead with smaller, 1mm and 2mm beads. The larger pearl in the center should almost resemble the bud of a flower, with the smaller pearls resembling petals. Glue beads to the sides of each other, as necessary, for a strong bond.
