    I've been making these for years. You're right Sam, they are fun and easy! I have a smaller one hanging from my kitchen curtain rod. They certainly let the creativity flow. The possibilities are endless.Thank you for sharing this!

    I've been planning to make these but hadn't thought of using tri-beads. Thanks for the idea and I like the patriotic theme.
