Make a pacifier chain yourself: Instructions
Are the materials ready? Then you can start with the DIY pacifier chain! When making a pacifier chain yourself, there are a few things to keep in mind so that your baby does not get injured . For making pacifier chains, you can only use beads that have been tested and intended for babies. Pay attention to the age recommended by the manufacturer. Silicone beads are also suitable for making the pacifier chain yourself. Your baby can chew on these. However, these should be free of BPA, phthalates, heavy metals, and other chemicals.
The DIN EN 12586 standard specifies a maximum pacifier chain length of 22 cm. This applies so that there is no risk of injury (strangulation or the like) – the clip is not included. When you make the pacifier chain, the last ball should be a so-called safety bead in which the knot disappears. After doing the handicrafts, you weld the knots with the lighter and then do a pull test (pull hard on all sides). Under no circumstances should the knot come loose.
Tinker pacifier chains: design individually
The nice thing about this DIY project is that you can make a very individual pacifier chain yourself. For example, use letter beads to add the baby’s name to the necklace. With cute motif beads and clips, you can turn your pacifier chain DIY into a very special one-off piece. No matter whether the pacifier chain is for girls or boys – you can let off steam with all colors.
There are no limits to your imagination! The following are particularly suitable:
- Wooden beads
- Letter cubes
- Pacifier clip
- Crochet accessories (homemade or bought)
- Motif pearls (stars, hearts, bears …)
Incidentally, this is also a great idea for a present for the birth ! Here are some great ideas for making pacifier chains yourself:

Since the chain should sag a little, measure the width of the convertible top and add another 15 centimeters. Then you can start threading!
