Even though there's not a Pin It/Do It Challenge this month, I finally got around to trying a craft idea I found on Pinterest ages ago - a Safety Pin Bracelet. The link on the pin is no longer good, but the picture instructions are self-explanatory.
I made my version in alternating rows of silver beads and blue/green/purple metallic beads. I filled all the pins during one evening in front of the TV. Threading and tying the elastic cord was a bit challenging. With a nod to Demi Moore in A Few Good Men, I strenuously recommend a large needle for that job!
This is inexpensive craft. I barely made a dent in the two tubes of beads, which cost approximately $2 each. I can't even guess the number of bracelets you could make from them. The elastic cord and safety pins were also under $2 each. It took 85 safety pins to fit my wrist, which is large, so adjust accordingly. Here is my finished bracelet:
