How To: Create an Epic Barrette

Hi friends!

Today I have a fun DIY for your hair! Barrettes are making a SERIOUS comeback and I’m definitely pumped about it!

I got this idea from Pinterest, here, and decided to have a go at it. Sometimes you see DIY projects and you’re like… yeah that’s cool but I don’t think I would actually wear that in public. But when I saw this- I was like, um YES PLEASE!

What you’ll need:

-Glue gun

Stone beads

-Hair barrette (I got mine at Pat Catan’s)

Ok, brace yourselves. Because this is super complex and hard to understand.

Step 1: Heat the glue gun up.

Step 2: Line up your gems in the order you want to glue them on the barrette :)

Step 3: Put a little glue on the gem and place on the barrette. Hold in place until secure.

Step 4: Repeat Step 3 until complete.

Step 5: Add a row of hot glue to the back of the barrette across the gems to secure further.

Wah-lah!!!! You’veĀ  got an epic barrette for about $6.50 a pop!


So what do you think? Is this DIY something you would wear?

keep on keeping on…
