SUPPLIES:

1 x silver, round pacifier clip

1 x 60” white, regular cord (35" is all you really need but we suggest the longer length to allow for any mistakes)

3 x 15mm soft pink round beads

3 x 15mm starburst round beads

3 x 15mm tangerine orange round beads

3 x 15mm watermelon round beads

 

STEPS:

PART 1

1. Loop cord through clip. Leave one side of the cord as a longer piece, and the other end of the cord with about 2.5” of length from the end of the clip.

2. Knot the cord about ½” from the bottom of the clip.

3. Snip excess string off of the smaller piece of cord. Carefully burn the tip of the cord and press into the knot until cool and hard.

4. Slightly burn the tip of the longer length of the cord so that you can begin beading. Pull first bead up the cord and over the knot close to the top of the clip.

5. Pull second bead up the cord and over top of the knot near the clip.

6. String the rest of the beads onto the cord.

7. Once all of the beads have been strung onto the cord, burn the end of the cord approximately 1”. Once warm, press the cord to make a stiff, 1” end.

8. Take the stiff end of the cord and push it back up through the second last bead.

Let's move on to the second part!

PART 2

9. Pull the last two beads down until you have about 5 inches of doubled string length between the third last bead and the two end beads.

10. Knot under the third last bead.

11. Cut the extra end piece of cord off so that just the loop is left. Burn the small tip of leftover cord and push it into the knot.

12. Pull the second last bead up and over the knot to cover it.

13. Pull the last bead up, and then knot the loop tightly underneath it.

14. Attach either a soother or teether if preferred to the loop at the end of the soother cord.

15. It’s done! Safe and easy to use—and best of all, no more lost soothers or teethers!

    Hi Chelsea,
    Thank you so much the writing and for checking out our tutorials! :)
    In our written tutorial we suggested a 60” cording so that you have excess string to work with, in case any errors are made. To make the paci clip, you really only do need a total of 35”, which is what we did for the video tutorial. We apologize for the confusion that this caused! We’ll update the wording to explain this a little bit more :)

    I’m a bit confused. In the video it says 35" cord but the written instructions say 60" cord. I have the 60" but the beads don’t seem to want to go over the knot.

    Hey Amanda!
    Thanks for writing with that great question! It can take a bit of wiggling to get the silicone bead over the cord, but generally, if you carefully pull the cord into it, it should cover the knot (even if it is a larger knot). The silicone generally expands as the knot is manipulated into it. Hope this helps!

    I can’t pull the beads over the knot in the cord… I bought the cord you sell on the website. Maybe it’s too thick?
