Grab a safety pin for no more tangled necklaces! I just had to share this untangling trick with you guys, because it is sad when a great necklace gets all knotted.

You feel like there’s no way to get it out, but you don’t want to throw it away because you just pray there’s a way to salvage it!

Tools and materials:

  • Knotted necklace
  • Safety pin

1. Grab the necklace and a safety pin

The only tool you’re going to need for this is the safety pin.

You know that frustrating feeling when you can see exactly how to pull a knot out but it seems impossible because no matter how hard you try your fingers can’t pinch that small?

This is where the safety pin comes in handy!

2. Use the pin to break up and pull out the knots

Use the pin by sticking it into one of the pieces of the chain in the knot.

Then use the pin to grip it and pull at it until it comes loose. This will start the rest of the knot getting looser.

Once that happens you can pull at each thread until you see the source of the tangle and resolve the issue.
