Directions:

  1. Cut the chenille stem in half, and form an X. Wrap one stem around the center of the X twice, leaving a short length of the stem. Bend the three remaining stems to form an Indian corn shape.
  2. String beads on each of the three long stems, alternating colors. Bend the end of each stem to secure.
  3. Knot a piece of raffia around the short stem, and glue a magnet to the back.

SAFETY NOTE: Beads can pose a choking hazard for children under three.
