How to Make a Zipper Pull
Bead crafts ideas are simply meant for jewelry makers. Learn how to make a zipper pull from Candace Jedrowicz that you can add to a backpack or fall jacket. This is a great way to personalize something that might otherwise be misplaced or mistakenly picked up by someone else.
Start with a 5" piece of wire and use round nose pliers to create a loop. Slide on a charm of your choice and add another bead to both ends of the wire. Bend and wrap the short wire around the long wire before adding another charm. Use round nose pliers to wrap the wire and create a loop. Add a lanyard to the loop crimp it slightly. Add your zipper pull to a backpack for a fun and personal touch.
