Introduction: Beaded Safety Pin
Hey! So, this is my second Instructable, I hope you guys enjoy it and I will be coming out with the necklace soon!
Step 1: Beading the Pins!
So, first of all, you're going to need:
Elastic String (Or regular if you prefer)
Beads (any color, small work best)
Now that you have your stuff, start by taking a safety pin, unclipping it, and putting the beads on (I am using small ones that fit four beads). Remember, there still needs to be some room for the pin to reclip, so make sure the point is still showing and that there will be enough room. It is ok if you can still see metal after you close the pin and the beads are on.
Step 2: Stringing the Pins
Now, cut two pieces of string, but DO NOT "cut them to the size of your finger". You will need plenty of excess. It does not matter if the two are the same length. Now tie a knot at the end of each (PLEASE DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP. If you do, it will be very hard for you to finish the ring.
Next, start stringing the pins by putting the end of one string through one end of the pin, and do the same with the other string through the other end of the pin. Keep going until you have enough pins on (this sort of depends on what you want it to be like, but make sure that you will be able to make it big/small enough for your finger).
Step 3: Tieing the Ends
First, a note:
I only used one pin because this is an EXAMPLE. It always looks better with more.
Anyways, now you take the unknotted end and loop it around the knotted end (under the knot) and tie a knot. PLEASE REMEMBER YOU ARE MAKING IT TO FIT YOUR FINGER SO ADJUST THE STRING UNTIL IT IS AT THE RIGHT SIZE. After you tie it, you are done! Enjoy!
We have a be nice policy.
