Step-by-Step Instructions:

*Please note that the recommended length for a pacifier clip in the US is 6-8" for compliance standards. Adjust tutorial below as needed to ensure the length of your final item is no longer than 8", including the clip and cord.

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.

    Thanks for your feedback! We’re so glad that this tutorial could be helpful for you – we take safety very seriously here at Cara & Co. Happy crafting! Xo

    Hi girls. Thanks for the refresher course. I have been making them by notting 3 beads at the top and 3 at the bottom. I also attach the toy with breakaway clips so can be interchangeable with the pacifier. Picked up a couple of good hints so thanks for that. I am always trying to find ways to make them more safe

    Hi Alda,
    Thanks for your question! Our Regular cord is the one that you can run a flame over to fuse and secure the end of pacifier clips. It can be found under “Cording” in the shop. Hope that was helpful! Xo


  • Alda Butland

    What is the name of the cord you sell so I can order some that can be burned to make secure end? Thank you
