Finishing : Assemble the beads into bead drops in any way you wish by putting the beads on each of the 18 head pins. Leave a ½" length of pin at the end to make into a loop. Attach them to the ch2 spaces on round 11 of doily. You will need to use the pliers to make the loops and close the loops when you put the beaded pins onto the doily.
