Safety Pin Necklace

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Today I am going to show you how to make your own safety pin necklace!



I started with a bunch of safety pins, some stretch cord (.8 mm) and some beads from an old necklace.

I just started to feed the beads onto the safety pins.

Then I fed the cord threw the bottom of all the safety pins and then put my beads on the cord on both sided, in whatever way you would want them to be.

Once you have all of your beads in the order you want, and make sure you measure on yourself where you want your necklace to hang, then you can add your lobster claws.

Feed them on the cord.

Tie a square not in the stretch cord, right where you want your lobster claw to be. I added a drop of super glue just to ensure that my not wouldn't come undone, just make sure it is where you want it before you add super glue.

Now you have made your own necklace! I love how this turned out, I think I am going to make different colored necklaces, and I might whip out a bracelet or two....so stay tuned!

Perfect for St. Patrick's Day!!!!

Now I am off to get my corned beef and cabbage started!!! Yum Yum!!!

  1. I love it! It reminds me of the friendship pins with the beads and safety pins we would make as kids to wear on our shoelaces. It just kills me that the kids can't wear these fun things to school anymore because of the "deadly weapon" rule good grief.

  10. Oh, my goodness- this takes me back to when I was a girl. We used to make the safety pins with beads and put them on everything- sometimes even as a necklace or bracelet. Yours is like the grown up version! Thanks for sharing!!
