    Thread the cut pieces of pipe cleaner though the holes in the cross stitch card design one by one until you have achieved your chosen pattern. Twist the ends together on the back and trim the excess pipe cleaners. Attach a silver pipe cleaner to the hole at the top of the bauble from the front and twist it around the pipe cleaner at the top on the back in order to secure it.
