Stylish Bobby Pins - DIY Hair Jewels -

I’ve been working on little gifts for my daughters for Valentine’s Day.

I’ve already made them Charm Necklaces ($3 each) that I’m quite proud of.

I also wanted to make something for them to put in their hair. That’s when I decided I would make them Stylish Bobby Pins.

These cute little hair pins are VERY EASY and inexpensive to make! Oh and very quick to put together.

I already had bobby pins on hand (they had cost me $1 for a pack) and I bought the pack of jewels for $1 at the dollar store.

Of course you also need glue to attach them, which I also had on hand.

So the entire project cost me next to nothing and I was able to make a bunch of cute bobby pins.

Stylish Bobby Pins

Jewels (or anything you might want to use to decorate)

– Wax Paper

How to make custom hair pins


Step 1: I placed the bobby pins onto a piece of cardboard (this is to make sure they stay straight).

Step 2: I applied glue onto the flat pad bobby pins and placed the jewels on them.

Step 3: Allow to dry.

I also made some with regular bobby pins, I assume most of you have regular bobby pins to work with.
