I decided to be crafty today. I tried my hand at making a safety pin bracelet. The only supplies needed were safety pins, seed beads and a string/cord the would be able to stretch. To measure out the cord, I wrapped it around my wrist loosely and added about 1-2 inches more, then I cut a second one of the same length.
I began the slow process of putting the seed bead on each safety pin. The average was about 6 beads per safety pin. After having the beads on the pin, I strung the cord through the hole of the pin and then used the other cord for the other end of the pin.

Once they were all strung, I tied the ends together. The type of cord that I got was actually very hard to tie together, so I ended up placing a dab of hot glue on the knot and knotting it again and that seemed to work.
The end project! I know have my very own safety pin bracelet! :D
