black and silver hairpin/bobby pin necklaceHere is a way to reuse your hairpins to make a pretty and unique necklace.


Total Time: 15 min



  1. Get your hairpins (bobby pins). Next get a necklace. Any type is OK. This one was made with a ball chain just to match.

  3. You can make it all with one color of hairpins, or create a pattern. I did silver then black and repeated. Thread alternating colors onto your chain or other necklace choice. I used 120 pins in total.

I love it, Kim! I always thought my bobby pins were cute when they were fresh off the pack. Nice way to use them!

We used to do a version of this back in the 50-60s when you had grandma's pins to play with. Boredom creates pretty things.

Use nice colors of nail polish to paint the pins. Paint them while they are still on the cardboard, let them dry and spray with acrylic spray.


I did a necklace in a turquoise nail polish. Really turned out pretty.
