DIY: Safety pins are awesome.

I love safety pins. I really do. They're just so easy to use! To make ANY outfit seem more unique, I find just attaching a load of safety pins is great. (Don't worry, I do have some pattern behind my random attaching). Warning: This post contains a lot, because I'm going away to Cornwall for a while (not that long) so I'm just doing a load of posts in one




Safety-Pinned Fingerless Gloves 

Difficulty Rating: Easy 

You Will Need:


Something to use for the gloves. Socks, legwarmers, armwarmers, old top sleeves, whatever. I've used legwarmers



Obviously, safety pins. As many as you want



Scissors

Step 1) Cut a thumb hole in each of the potential gloves 


 Step 2) Attach safety pins however you wish to. Here is some of what I did. 


Safety pins around the thumb hole. This also stops fraying. 


I attached pins messily around the edge of it 




Threaded Eyebrows! 






 I got my eyebrows threaded today :). I love them but god it hurts...




More Safety Pins!

This time on my belt



Not going to do a tutorial for this because it's super easy. You literally just attach safety pins in a line

Safety pins are just plain awesome, I actually had done the safety pin corset thing with a plain black shirt. I also cut a line right down the entire sleeve of a black longsleeve shirt and "sewed" it back together with safety pins. Strangely, I randomly put a safety pin on the bottom of a sleeve on my hoodie, and just seeing it makes me happy. One single pin.

I can never use safety pins I could easily take out. I'm too much of an airhead and usually end up poking myself with them to see if it hurts. No idea why...
