Easy DIY Pacifier Clip

on June 13, 2014

I’ve always wanted a pacifier clip for my Leo but each time I walk through the shops, they would cost between 20-40RM (a fairly good brand). I would not say that I am a mom who does not spend on her kids, but RM20 for a clip to keep his pacifier from dropping? NO WAY!

So I tried to make my own clip with some tools I can easily get and what I already have at home, and it was a success! Here I would like to show you how you can make a pacifier clip for your little one (don’t worry; you do not need a sewing machine! *sigh of relief* and it is so easy!

What you need:

  1. KAM snap pliers
  2. 12-13 inch thick/good quality ribbon
  3. Lighter/Glue gun
  4. Snap dies (3 caps, 2 female, 1 male)
  5. Suspender clip
  6. A sharp tool to poke holesImage

Step 1 – Use a lighter/glue gun to burn off the little bits if ribbon at each end, to keep them from fraying.

Step 2 – Fold one end of the ribbon down once (about ½ an inch), and then fold down again (leaving about 1 inch gap). Then, poke a hole with a sharp tool right in the middle of the first fold (I used the other end of a blackhead remover).

Step 3 – At the first fold, place a cap at the back of the fold into the made hole. Then, use the KAM snap plier to fasten the male die onto the cap.

Step 4 – Do the same with the 2nd fold hole, but use the female die this time.

Step 5 – On the other end of the ribbon, fold down again once (about ½ an inch) and slide the suspender clip through; facing upwards.

Step 6 – Fold down again (to secure the clip) and poke a hole through. Place the cap at the print side up and fasten it with the female die using the pliers.

Step 7 – Place the pacifier ring into the open end and snap it shut. YOU ARE DONE!

You have just made an easy pacifier clip for your little one! You can also adjust the length of the ribbon for a newborn baby. To make it shorter, unsnap the open end, and snap it up all the way to the suspender end. This way, the ribbon is much shorter and will not tangle on baby’s arms.

I hope this helps you troubleshoot pacifier issues and save money. The cost of making this clip is only about 5RM (or less).

Have you ever made anything DIY for your baby? Please share it with me 🙂

    Creative:) Where to purchase those tools (KAM snap pliers; Snap dies (3 caps, 2 female, 1 male) and Suspender clip)?

      Hi Mavis,
      sentuhanbayu.biz sells the KAM pliers and snap dies in all different colors. As for suspender clips, this is quite a challenge. I happen to run across another mama who got hers from Etsy and she sold me some. Alternatively you can use those clips from actual suspenders. Those metal ones are easier to find.
