safety pin diy


















so the other day I had exactly one stud in my jacket and thought; studding till my fingers bleed, no way...

see this evil twinkle in my eyes.....

safety pins

I give you a 1000 possibilities haha :) you can actually align them, you can put them on your shoulders and attach pins on pins to create volume, you can attach chains to the pins and loop them, you can pin the lapels alone, you name it...


I actually choose to mix match them to give it an embroidered feel,
but you can totally do it neatly and more clean...

All you need is a jacket or vest and safety pins,
and for even more possibilities on which clothing to use check out the selection of wholesale clothing at Apparel Showroom. With plenty of styles, colors and sizes to choose from, it's easy to create your own fashions and look great everyday and still maintain a budget.

The Clothes Horse said...

Okay, the DIY is cool, but I'm sort of DYING that you have that tee. I covet it.

Wicked Plum Vintage said...

wow that is pretty cool! damn girl your poor fingertips! well they say you have to suffer for fashion!

ya know, it sort of reminds me of these weird little necklaces we used to make back in the late 80s out of tiny brass colored safety pics and tiny little beads, and some girls used to make some preety wild patterns out of them, but I think yours is way more bad-ass!!!

Anna G said...

You totally remind me of middle school when everyone was putting safety pins on everything they wore. :)

FESI said...

Lovely shirt and great blazer!! I love your style!

elsalvador said...

Heb je btw nog een award gegeven.

Swank Heights said...

I also did a little DIY with safety pins but it doesn't look nearly as cool as your blazer! And I've been wanting that shirt as well.

You've officially become a trend setter to me! <3

Gabriela said...

well, OBVIOUSLY this was going to be freaking awesome! man i wish i could see everyday things and come up with actual cool use for them. you should see my room (my mom doesn't call me a pack rat for nothing!) endless possibilities and no brainspan for them :D
great job, ladyy!

Ashley said...

Safety pins are so versatile in fashion..I really like what you did mixing the gold, silver and bronze colored pins together with chains. Its kind of a variation on the studded blazer which is so ubiquitous right now.
