How to make a safety pin bracelet featured

Gather the necessary materials

Before you start making a safety pin bracelet, you’ll need to gather the necessary materials. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Safety pins (the number depends on the size of the bracelet you want to make)
  • Elastic cord or string
  • Beads or charms (optional)

Prepare the safety pins

Once you have all the materials, the next step is to prepare the safety pins. Open each safety pin by pulling the clasp upwards, opening the pin so it forms a straight line. Make sure all the safety pins are open and ready to be threaded onto the cord or string.

Thread the safety pins onto the cord

Take your elastic cord or string and thread it through the opening of the first safety pin. Push the safety pin all the way to the end of the cord, leaving a small tail of cord at the end. Continue threading the rest of the safety pins onto the cord, pushing them close together to create a bracelet-like chain.

Add beads or charms (optional)

If you want to add some extra flair to your safety pin bracelet, you can choose to add beads or charms between the safety pins. To do this, simply thread a bead or charm onto the cord, then add the next safety pin. Continue alternating between beads/charms and safety pins until you reach the desired length of your bracelet.

Tie the ends and secure the bracelet

Once you have finished threading all the safety pins and optional beads/charms onto the cord, it’s time to tie the ends of the bracelet together. Make sure the bracelet fits comfortably around your wrist before tying the ends. You can use a double knot to secure the cord, ensuring the bracelet won’t come apart.

After tying the ends, trim any excess cord, leaving a small tail if desired. This will prevent the knot from coming undone. If you used elastic cord, you can stretch the bracelet to make it fit more snugly on your wrist.

And there you have it! Your very own safety pin bracelet. Feel free to get creative with different colors of safety pins or add more beads and charms to customize your bracelet to your liking.
