QC: Bejeweled Vintage Barrettes

Materials

  • Large flat brooches, pendants, or earrings
  • Standard barrette or child-size barrettes
  • Metal barrette clasps
  • White, cream, or black ribbon

Tools

  • Hot glue gun

Directions

STEP 1

  • Check barrette clip to make sure it opens and closes well. Cover metal part of barrette clip with white, cream, or black ribbon. (Note: Choose a ribbon color that matches your hair, if possible.)

STEP 2

  • Hot glue ribbon over metal portion of barrette, folding and adhering raw edges under to prevent fraying.

STEP 3

  • Hot glue jewelry to front of barrette.

Tip

  • 1. Look for brooches, pendants or earrings that are big and flat enough to be mounted on a standard barrette. Metal barrette clasps are available at craft stores. If you have very fine hair, use child-size barrettes.
