DIY Jewelled Bobby Pins

Today’s craft tutorial is making jewelled bobby pins. I originally made these for my little girls because they loved anything bejewelled but they would make an elegant accessory for a bride, bridal party or a night on the town. I am demonstrating the technique with rhinestones and small pearls, but I think anything can be used, whether you want to use larger pearls or stones. I was going to use larger pearls myself but I had some difficulty finding ones that didn’t have the holes for jewelry making. I am sure there are some out there but I couldn’t get my hands on some at the moment.

You will need

Pearls and/or rhinestones
Bobby pins
Hot glue gun

hairpins supplies

1)     Place the stone on a work surface, with the back facing up.

2)     Line up the bobby pin and hold down

3)     Place a small dollop of glue to fuse the stone and bobby pin together

4)     Set aside to allow the glue to dry and harden
