Safety pin DIYs of the fashion variety often have a retro punk rock feel to them. (Think: Just about any old photo of the Sex Pistols.) I’m all for being edgy with fashion, but when it comes to DIYs for the home, I think pretty is the way to go. My Pinterest sleuthing leads me to believe that you can do lots of pretty things with safety pins. Okay, at least 5 pretty things. Take a peek at my finds…
If safety pins don’t make you think of punks, perhaps it’s because they’re also associated with babies. (Hello, old-school cloth diaper realness!) This oh-so-apropos safety pin nursery art from ChemistryMama on What to Expect would make a darling baby shower present.
My grandma used to mark my height on the back of her basement door when I was a kid, but these days, portable growth charts seem much more practical. This rustic jute example from Heather of Whipperberry uses tags on safety pins to note how tall each of your little — or not-so-little — ones have grown.
Which safety pin craft do you think looks the sharpest? (Figuratively, that is.) And if you’ve got some great Designer MacGyver material requests/suggestions, leave them in the comments below!
