Introduction: Safety Pin Bracelet!!!!

To make this u'll need:
large safety pins - 70 (approx)
lots of small beads

Firstly open up a safety pin and just thread lots of beads onto it, almost till the tip, then close it...

Step 2: Step 2

Repeat with all the other safety pins....
Then thread the safety pins onto the elastic cords.....

Step 3: Step 3

Wrap the bracelet around someone's wrist n pull two ends of cord to put them under a bit of tension, and then tie them together with a simple overhand knot.....

    What kind of beads you are using? They are so uniform.

    Is there a certain length for the cords?

    It's really cool.....I have to try it

    I remember in the fourth grade, my friend had made one of these, and one day when we were mucking around one opened and stabbed her to the point where she had blood dripping down her arm.
    Let's just say she never wore it again.

    Anyways, great job!
    Beware of stabby-ness.

    thats so cooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooolllllllllll wish i could do it <3

    I tried to make this one time, and it was an epic fail. Its not as easy as it looks, Folks!

    simple and cool:)

    Hi, when I make these I use a pair of needle nosed pliers and squeeze the head of the pin closed so there's very little danger of it opening and hurting anyone.

    Shouldn't you have those pins positioned so that if one of them accidentally opens, it doesn't stick you?

    And which way would that be? Pin out will get your body, pin in will get your arm.

    I'd consider crimping the bobby pin closed so it needs a tool to open again.

    This is really great! Going to see if I can make some. On how not to get stuck by a pin, use heavy duty metal glue. Just a dab should be enough.

    Wicked! Clean, simple and effective.

    When i was little, i had a kit to make this. It's really cool. I still have mine!

    Cool! I've seen these before, but never knew how to put it all together. Thanks for sharing :)

    Sweet! Just what I was looking for to make for Stockholm Pride.

    Very cool! I have made a lot of these but none of them have looked a s good as yours. :P

    Very nice pictures! If i can make a suggestion, I'd make them bigger.
