DIY: Safety Pin Bracelet

Do you want to know what I've been doing these days? Safety pins bracelets. Honestly, this type of bracelet is sooooo weird but, somehow I like them! Lol. Anyways, here's the safety pin bracelet tutorial!


Step 1: You'll need the following materials- safety pins (size 00 or 0 recommended), seed beads (or any bead that fits on the safety pin) and elastic cord.
Step 2: Open the safety pin and thread the beads onto the pin (leave a space to be able to close the pin).
Step 3: Repeat step 2 until you have enough safety pins beaded (the amount of pins will depend on your wrist size).
Step 4: Cut two pieces of elastic cord. Thread one of the cords through the top hole of one pin and then though the bottom hole of another pin. Repeat the step with the second cord.
Step 5: Tie the end of the cords together and that's it, your bracelet is ready!

Here's another style (my favorite)

For me, this style looks better. The only step you have to add for this style is, adding an empty safety pin between every beaded safety pin.


and here are some photos that I shared on Instagram...


So, tell me... did you like this type of bracelet?

  16. Weird, but honestly unique. It's cute! However, I don't think something was mentioned about keeping the safety pins securely closed. Although it would, most probably, take intentional effort to open a pin, it would be better to be cautious. Besides that, I have no more issue about it and would definitely try it. :)) Paige @Compelling Creations
