Clothing may make up the majority of an outfit, but accessories are more significant than you might think. Many find themselves spending just as much time shopping for accessories as they do for clothes. “Accessories are important and becoming more and more important every day,” Giorgio Armani once said.
But there is something to be said about creating – rather than shopping for – your own accessories. You get to wear something unique and special even as you express your creativity.
Do you love making your own accessories? Then you’ll most probably enjoy this DIY bracelet idea using safety pins!
You are going to have fun doing this project because designing beautiful pieces is very easy! You can create beautiful patterns simply by decorating the safety pins with different colors and types of beads.
Just make sure to get the right supplies! The size of your safety pins will, of course, determine the size of your bracelet. Small to medium ones usually make a standard-size bracelet, and around 85 pieces are enough to make one piece. Now whatever you choose, make sure all your safety pins are of the same size. Also, make sure all the beads that you get will fit the safety pins.
This project does take a bit of patience but it’s a very enjoyable project once you get a hang of it.

How to make these beautiful safety pin bracelets
Making these beautiful safety pin bracelets is easy and fun! All you need is some colorful safety pins and some elastic string.
1. Gather your safety pins
Your project will require quite a few safety pins, depending on their length.
2. Add beads to your safety pins
This step is a fun and creative way to add beads to your safety pins. It is up to you how many beads you want to add.
3. Combine all safety pins
To combine all safety pins, use the round beading elastic. Begin by threading the elastic string through the first safety pin. Insert the safety pins one by one. Thread the next safety pin through the first pin, and so on.
4. Tie a knot
Once you have the desired length, tie the two ends of the elastic string together. If you need a bit more length, you can always add a second elastic string to the mix.
There you have it: your very own safety pin bracelet!
You can make these bracelets in any color combination you like, and they make great gifts.
