DIY Jeweled Bobby Pins

What better way to find glitzy hair accessories then to learn how to make your own on style blog! Amp up your typical (and oh so necessary) bobby pins with gems – yes our eyes lit up too when we realized we could take jewels from jewelry we either never wear or inexpensive store bought pieces and create a head turning hair accessory! Not only fun, but super easy, you’ll want to dig the bobbies out of your makeup bag and the glue from your craft closet and DIY these jeweled bobby pins right now! Sara from Tell Love & Chocolate masterminded these beauties and our hair is extremely grateful!

Whether it’s unwashed, messy or just plain bad… my hair is constantly saved by these precious, precious accessories.  So adding some flair to your bobbies makes those bad hair days a little more fun.  These bobby pins are so easy and make great gifts… especially if they’re gifts to yourself!

What You Need:

E6000 glue
Old earrings or necklace (they need to have loose jewels so it’s easy to remove them)

3.  Glue a main gem on the bobby pin first.  All The other jewels will be glued to this main jewel because the base of the bobby pin is very small.

4.  After the main jewel has dried, start to glue on other jewels.

5.  The glue is slow drying, so you may need to prop up the bobby pin so everything can dry evenly.
