First you need a pack of safety pins, and a necklace that you are willing to work with. Mines was a random brass colored one that I lost the pendant to. If you have a necklace that actually matches the pins, then that would be even better.
Did I forget to mention how easy this project is? All you have to do now is string the safety pins onto the necklace. The top of the safety pin has a very convenient hole, so just string your necklace through that.
Put as many safety pins as you desire. I chose to put quite a few...about 20.
This is where you can get creative. So I took a couple of pearls and strung them on to three different safety pins. I thought it gave it a little sweeter, softer look. You can add whatever you would like at this point. Colored beads, string, crystals, whatever your heart desires.
I bet you're wondering, Lisa, why do you have so many safety pins? Well, last semester I bought a pack of safety pins because I was making ribbon pins for a group presentation. I ended up only using 3 pins, so I was left with a whole pack of safety pins. I knew this would happen, so I decided to buy it in gold, because I primarily wear gold brassy jewelry. If you're more of a silver girl, buy the silver ones. A pack of 100 safety pins can range around $1-$3 dollars, so this is definitely an affordable DIY project that takes seconds to make!
I hope you guys have fun making this :)
