Safety Pin Bracelet

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
