Have you ever wondered how to make a crystal-adorned hair comb? If you have, then today is your lucky day. I’ll be sharing how easy it is to make a crystal hair comb perfect for bridal hair, prom hair or for other special occasions! It doesn’t need a lot of material too – and what I love about this is that I have enough leftover material for other accessories such as matching DIY bridal hair combs for bridesmaids and/or flower girls.
- Silver Wire Hair Comb
- David Tutera Rhinestone Pearl Floral Picks
- David Tutera Monofilament Bezel Rhinestone Floral Picks
- David Tutera Gold Rhinestone Magnetic Brooches
- Jewelry Wire Cutters
- Jewelry Flat Nose Pliers
- Silver Stringing Wire
- Hot Glue Gun
- E-6000 Adhesive (or other strong adhesive)
Step 1. First, let’s make the pearl picks by cutting a piece of wire, threading your pearl on it, securing it on the middle and twisting the wire to create the pick itself. You will want to make a few of these to fill the gaps for your DIY bridal hair comb.
Step 3. Attach the crystal flowers by wedging it between the teeth of the hair comb. You may choose to adhere this with glue now, or wait until you have all your elements in place (in case you want to move them around). I waited until I’ve arranged mine – it was pretty secure even without adhering.
Step 7. Use extra pearls to fill in holes in your design. You can use smaller or bigger pearls to generate more interest. Use E-6000 or other strong adhesive to adhere them onto the DIY bridal hair comb, and wait for it to dry.
Step 8. Finally, squeeze a generous amount of hot glue onto the back of the hair comb to secure the elements in place as well as to cushion your hair/head from the wire and loose filaments. Wait for that to dry and your DIY bridal hair comb is done!
