- 1 x Length of 60” regular cording
- 40 x Saucer beads
- 1 Metal clip
- 1 Soother (we used the OLI in White)
- Crafting needle
1. Take your cording and fold it in half. At the middle point, feed your cord through the loop on your metal clip and create a loop knot.
2. On one side of your strings thread on 2 saucer beads. On the opposite string, thread on 3 saucer beads.
3. Take your string that has two saucer beads, and feed the working end through the last saucer bead on the end of the other string. This will create a crossing point.
4. Pull on the ends of your string to tighten the beads together into a flower shape. Repeat steps 2&3.
5. Continue to repeat the pattern until you are happy with the length of your lanyard. We liked the length of 30 saucer beads. Note that for US standards, the total length of your pacifier clip should be no longer than 8" (including the clip), so adjust length as needed.
6. Make a loop with both strings about 3.5” long. Loop a knot as tight as you can against your last saucer bead.
7. Pull on your knot to secure it well. Either with well melted ends, or with a crafting needle, take your two ends hanging down and feed them back through the top saucer bead.
8. Continue to feed your strings back down the pattern until you reach your next middle saucer bead.
9. Feed one side through the middle of the saucer bead, but leave a loop out. Feed your other string the opposite way through the middle saucer bead. Wrap the string once around the loop left out and pull tight on your working ends. By wrapping your string around the loop left out, you will create a single knot. By pulling on each side equally, your knot will end up under the saucer bead. Repeat this step if you want a second knot.
10. Trim your ends and melt them with your lighter. Make sure that you also run your lighter well over the large double knot to fuse it.
11. When your knots are cool, simply loop your soother of choice on the end.

*At Cara & Co, we take safety seriously. We have had our custom tutorial design above third-party tested by a CPSC accredited testing lab. However, this does not remove the responsibility of each customer to ensure that the products they create from this tutorial are tested and meet all relevant compliance standards. Note that various geographical regions have different standards for pacifier clip / teething toy compliance. This pacifier clip meets the safety compliance standards for Canada (SOR/2011-17); however, the design is not recommended for US customers, as CPSIA/ASTM F963 standards require that no pacifier clip be able to pass through the standard choke test when in a non-compressed, folded state.
