These beaded clips are trending right now, and can go for around $15 each. I came up with this tutorial, and it only cost $3-4 per clip! I made several of these for my friends who have little ones on the way.

To watch the video tutorial, check out my Instagram profile. It is saved in my story highlights. Look for ‘DIY PacifierClip.’


  1. Organic string – I use cotton twine from Walmart
  2. Small wooden beads – I found that it’s cheaper to buy this 2 pack from the jewelry section at Michael’s instead of a bag from the craft section.
  3. Suspender clips – these are the same type of clips used for the pacifiers. I found this two pack in the sewing section at Hobby Lobby
  4. Scissors
  5. Pacifiers

* Make sure you are purchasing non-toxic materials, since these are likely to make it into the baby’s mouth

Start by cutting a long piece of string and folding it in half. It’s better to cut more than you think you’ll need. You can just cut off the excess later!

Holding the folded halfway point of your string, wrap it around your fingers and tie a knot, creating a 1-2 inch loop. This is where the pacifier will be attached.

Next, you’ll add the beads onto the string until they touch the knot. If your string is thinner and both ends can fit through each bead hole together, then string your beads using both strings. My twine was too thick, so I left one string out and cut it off later.

Once all of your beads are strung, use the remaining string to tie a tight knot onto the loop of the clip. Cut off the excess string as close to the knot as possible. If you have excess string that could not fit into the bead holes, cut the down as much as possible too. Then you are done!
