Watch a short video on how to make a Safety Pin Bracelet from start to finish by Hannah for truebluemeandyou.
My best friend Hannah (who made the Rubik’s Cube video), also makes the best safety pin bracelets and sells them on Etsy and at boutiques (she’s made and sold over a thousand bracelets so far). Her beautiful bracelets have been pinned thousands of times on Pinterest, the Silver Warrior Safety Pin Bracelet Cuff being the most popular.
So, I asked Hannah to make a video tutorial on how to make these DIY Safety Pin Bracelets bracelets she sells for my readers. So now you can make Hannah’s Safety Pin Bracelets that don’t look cheap too.
