Safety pin bead bracelet

Safety pin bead bracelet

Easy to make - a safety pin bead bracelet with step by step directions

What you need

50-100 safety pins. (depending on how big you want it)
Seed beads in various colors
Two lengths of stretchy cord or elastic.


First put the seed beads on the safety pins, make sure the safety pin can still close and then close each pin. The amount of seed beads you will need for each pin will vary depending on the size of your safety pins.

Once you have put enough beads on all the safety pins, take one piece of the Elastic cord and string on the safety pins but alternate every other one. So one is right side up, and the next one is upside down.

Take your second piece of cord and string it thought the other side of the safety pins, so they will be attached to both strings, tie the ends together, and put on your wrist!

  1. my frnds just admired me wen i wore it out!!!!!!its tendy!!!!!!!:) 😉

  2. so weird but so cool! i have got to make one for myself!

  3. These are nice, but dabbing the end of the pin in a little bit of glue before you close it will prevent the pins from coming undone and sticking you in the wrist.

  4. I already knew how to make them, but still, this is great! i make alot of my own awsome assesories, and end up setting the trends at my school! haha.

  5. Great project. I would suggest closing each safety pin with pliers. That way they won’t come undone.

  6. OMG I love this i just have to find a few saftey pins and i can make one! Yay!!! 🙂

  7. I saw someone at school today wearing one and i came home and googled it and now i can make one too!Yay they look so cool XD

    absolutly awesome:] i cant wait to make one for my friend lauren and i :]

  17. These are always fun. 🙂 If you want, for extra safety, use a pair of pliers to pinch the safety pin permanently closed so it doesn’t come undone and poke you while you’re wearing it.

  18. I always wanted to learn how to make these!
