Beaded Bobby Pins
This is not my idea.
But it is so cute that I had to make them and share them with you all!!
I was talking with my friend’s daughter, Maya, today about bows and other adornments for your head and she put this little gem out into the universe:
“and sometimes we just put hot glue on them and dip them in beads”
I was like “that is a good idea!” and then I said, not surprisingly, “I will have to blog about that”.
So I am, but giving Maya credit for her idea. Here is how they turned out…
If you want to make your own, gather you tiny beads (I found a bunch of colors at the dollar store if you don’t have any):
And your large bobby pins, they are probably in the bottom of the resuable whole foods bag in the closet, or is that just at my house?
I started with pink, so I grabbed a handful.
And put it on a piece of paper in a long pile.
Put the hot glue on the bobby pin.
And here is the hard part, follow along, put the bobby pin, glue side down in the beads.
I know, complicated. ?
Then do all the rest of them in other colors!
I made all the ones I had, if I had 100, I would have probably done them all. It is one of those projects that is so easy it is addictive. This would be a great gift or party favor!
I know, probably enough pictures, just two more….
