Badge Holder DIY

Does anybody else have to wear a badge for work?
When I go into work on Fridays (I home school my boys the other four days of the week),
I have to wear a badge at the medical clinic where I'm a nurse.

Recently, my work issued badge holder bit the dust, so I decided to come up with my own.

Here's my new badge holder.
I wanted something that would match any color.

It was super easy to make.

If you'd like to make one, all you need is:
a badge reel (I got mine at Hobby Lobby)
a pendant that is big enough to cover the front of the reel
wire cutter
E-6000 glue

First, you'll want to cut the loop off of the pendant.
I used my Tim Holtz scissors, but wire cutters will do the trick as well.

Then just place some E-6000 glue on the back of the pendant and center it onto the reel.

Give it 24 hours to dry, and you're ready to go!
I chose a solid silver pendant, but you could go as wild and colorful as you like.

Thanks so much for stopping by and God bless.

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; 
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Psalm 119:16-18
