Do you remember when we used to put beads on safety pins like this and fasten them to our shoes? I love this craft because it makes me all nostalgic. I like that you can use up some items you have laying around. I know I always seem to have too many craft items in my house. I can get rid of a few this way.

I absolutely love these! I collect angels and never would have thought I'd like them in Christmas red and green. We make ornaments every year in my family and these are a perfect fit. I remember safety pin ornaments from years ago but never made any myself. This is definitely going on my to do list. This is an easy pattern. I think I'd attempt some in blue and silver too. It is a traditional color my mother had on our tree and she still has it for herself. What colors would you use?

This always blows me away. It's so pretty and as the title says, it's sweet. And it's safety pins and beads. It can't get much cheaper or easier to make. And if you don't want them in red and green, think about other colors like silver, gold or white. Thank you for sharing.

Oh my goodness! This DIY is a blast from the past. I remember making these angels with my Grandmother when I was just a little girl. I have always loved how they look. They are so sweet hanging on the tree or tucked into a wreath. They are also wonderful little charms to hang next to name tags on gifts. These angels are a cinch to make and don't cost very much.

Doesn't look like safety pins at first glance. This an excellent idea for some Christmas decor. Maybe not just for Christmas. Amazing how these safety pins turned into something unique and beautiful and useful.

These are so lovely to hang on the tree. They are bright and colorful and simply angelic to look at. This project looks fun and I can even get my teens involved in it. Great one to start on this summer.

It is amazing how much you can make out of something so little like safety pins and beads! These are so stinkin' cute! Such wonderful pictures too with this step by step tutorial. I am sure I can make them. I am needing new ornaments for handing out and these would be the perfect size!

I swear that fate wants me to make these. I reached into my desk drawer looking for paper clips and pulled out a small plastic box. I thought they were my clips. But it turned out to be safety pins. Then I logged onto this site and the first thing I saw was this. If this isn't a sign, I don't know what is,
