  • Packet of 15mm (1"Inch) Safety Pins
  • Elastic Thread
  • Seed Beads
  • Spacer Beads (These will be used between your safety pins so they'll need to be bigger than seed beads)
  • Scissors
  • Chain Nose Pliers (Optional)



  1. Start of by measuring your wrist with your elastic making sure to leave an extra 30cm (12' Inches) of elastic before cutting it with your scissors. Cut another piece of elastic the same length as the one you just cut.
  2. Open up your safety pins and start threading on your seed beads in the order that you want them. If you're going to make a pattern with your beads, you'll need to keep in mind that every second safety pin will be threaded onto your elastic upside down to make sure the bracelet is even.  You'll need to make a LOT of beaded safety pins!  (Optional Step) What I did to secure my safety pins from falling off of my bracelet was I clamped the top opening area with a pair of chain nose pliers.

  3. Start threading your safety pins onto your elastic, making sure to alternate tops and bottoms. After every 3 safety pins I added a spacer bead (My spacer beads were silver flowers and my friends ones were small green beads).

  4. Once you've reached your desired length, tie the top elastic together, and the ones at the bottom together. Cut off any extra elastic.

I haven't thought about these since I was a kid. I remember I had a red and white one that an older cousin had made. So simple and unique - I'm sure my kids will love making them. I'd never thought before about using spacer beads, but I think they look great. Thank you for the memories )

Wow does this ever bring back memories from way back to the early 70's when I was in Girl scouts. We made these and gave them a friendship pins. I forgot all about these and so thankful that you shared this craft! I know my Grand kids will love doing this and the bracelet is so cute and easy to do! Thank you again for this free craft!!

I love it! This was all the rage when I was a kid in grade school! We used to pin them to our shoe laces!!
