Retro Safety Pin Necklace

While I was making my safety pin bracelets
the thought crossed my mind to make a necklace with them as well.
Since I bought 2" safety pins that didn't work for the bracelets
I figured they would make a fun necklace.
And this is how it turned out....


Here is what you will need to make one for yourself or a friend:

beads
2" safety pins or any size you want to use
2.4mm ball chain or thin ribbon
scissors


Decide how long you want your necklace and cut the chain/ribbon to that length.
Place beads onto safety pins into your desired pattern.
Then put the pins onto the chain
and you have a fun, retro necklace :)






I hope your week is going well!
We had snow again yesterday - the poor robins must be confused.
Blessings to you all!

This is so very pretty! I am going to forward this post to my daughter and daughter-in-law and 'hint' that grandma would love a necklace like this for her birthday. If they get the 'hint' and make it, I will be so excited to share it with you.

Thanks for sharing this sweet project. xo

These are lovely! You and your blog is quickly becoming one of my favorites-not so much because of all the neat things you make but because of how Christ's love shines through you.

I am not always able to comment, but I love having you in my blog reader!

Cute - and adding a couple of those charms you can get at hobby stores would be cute too.
