Some days, you want something more glamorous for your hair than a plain old bobby pin. For those times, you can make these easy rhinestone-studded DIY hair accessories. This was really simple to make, and is also something that would make a great gift!
I think these hair clips would be a great option for Christmas presents for all the girls on your list. Gather up a bunch of supplies and you’ll have a nice portion checked off your list and ready in one day! So what do you say – let’s get started!
Supplies needed to make your own rhinestone-studded DIY hair accessories:
- Emerald Rhinestone Beads or Any Other Rhinestone Beads
- Ready-to-Decorate Bobby Pins
- E-6000 Adhesive or Other Jewelry Adhesive
- Mini Craft Sticks
- Chain Nose Pliers
Optional (for gift-giving):
The bobby pins come packaged on a plastic card. Take two of the bobby pins and push them together on the card. Remove all the others.
Use your craft stick to apply a layer of glue all along the length of both bobby pins. You will be gluing them together so they act as one. Using your pliers, pick up a rhinestone and carefully place it on the bobby pins.
Firmly hold it down for a few seconds before placing the next one.
It’s easy to package up your DIY hair accessories for gift giving, too!
Simply take a piece of cardstock and cut a small slit on one side of it. You can dress the cardstock up by lining an edge with a piece of washi tape. Slip the clip onto the cardstock, and pack it into one of these adorable polka dot envelopes.
