Make Easy Badge Holders

Easy way to make a Badge Holder a piece of jewelry.  I work at our local hospital and I must wear a badge at all times.  This morning I was was organizing my outfits and  I thought gosh I am so sick of wearing a  plain badge holder.  Since I am such a recycle nut I thought I would take some old pins and give them a new life.  
Here they are!
Super easy to do.  I bought badge holders from Dollar Tree.  I then took old pins - removed the pin part on the back - then glued the pin to the holder using E6000 glue. 
E6000 glue takes a while to dry - make sure the pin is centered and you have something to hold the pin in place while it is drying.  The pic with the finished pins - I am using the base of my bedroom TV to hold the pins in a straight position while they are drying so I could take a pic for this post. 
Not bad - 6 new Badge Holders for $2.00 plus glue! :)  If you wear a badge everyday at work - the next time you are at Rummage Sales and see a neat pin. Pick it up and make yourself a fun badge holder.

  15. These are so cute. I used a badge everyday for the last three years for University. I graduated last month so I no longer need one, but I would definitely keep this in mind should I ever find myself once again requiring a badge.
