Next, I will show you 3 simple ideas with different types of beads about how to make DIY planner clips in a very short period of time. Maybe, making these planner clips will take you less than five minutes, and you can make them with materials you possibly have at home.
1- How to make planner clips with glued beads
You will need:
- Paper clips of your choice
- Small seed beads: about 8 mm size or any other bead
First, introduce the bead or small seed beads of your choice in the clip. If it is a little difficult to pass by the most curved part of the clip, you should move gently one side of the clip to slightly open it. If you cannot do it with your hand, you could use jewelry pliers or simple pliers to help you. Then, pass the bead or beads and return the clip to the original position.
Before you place your beads to the top position or desired position, put a small amount of glue on that part of the clip. Consequently, place the beads on the right place and let it dry. So, now you have finished your first planner clip.
2- How to make planner clips with bead dangle
You will need:
- Paper clips
- Medium size beads (I recommend beads with beautiful shapes like stars or hearts) or pendant charms like these or these
- Jewelry head pins, like these, in case you have only beads, not pendant charms
- Jewelry round pliers, like these
- Cutting pliers
In case you have pendant charms that already are a bead dangle, that is to say, a bead inserted in a head pin, you can insert it in the clip right away.
On the other hand, to make a bead dangle, introduce the bead on the head pin. Then, measure the desired length for your bead dangle. After that, bend the pin to the side at the level of the bead and make a round shape in the pin. Finally, cut the rest of the pin and introduce it in your clip.
3- Make beaded planner clip
- Paper clips
- Medium size beads
- Jewelry wire
- Jewelry round pliers
Introduce a bead in the middle of a short piece of wire, in my case a medium pearl, bend the left part of the wire to the right side and vice versa, forming an X shape.
Then, pass the wire through the clip and roll the wire on each side of the clip a couple of times with the help of the pliers. Finally, cut the rest of the wire and that’s it.
