DIY: Tom Binns Safety Pin Necklace

While simultaneously trying to figure out what to wear out one night for appetizers and drinks with my boyfriend, listing a few new pieces on Etsy and catching up on all the Blogger/Tumblr/Pinterest posts from the week, I came across this simple yet perfect necklace from Tom Binns. I loved it until I saw the cost $70. Yeah, I know that’s pretty nominal in comparison to other pieces we drool over everyday but why pay that when you could DIY it and pay under $5. Plus it was sold out…

USE THESE:

– pliers
– long gold chain ( $1 necklace from dollar store – trashed the pendant it came with)
– large safety pin ($2 at craft store)

DO THIS:

– Bend safety pin randomly. You many need to used two pliers depending on how thick your safety pin is
– String chain through safety pin
– Wear out proudly

It doesn’t get any simpler than this ladies..
