Easy Decorated Bobby Pins, Great Gifts

I made this video three times and apparently, this video wasn’t willing to play with me. I made these bobby pins for our niece who is a hygenist who specializes in applying individual eyelashes on her clients. I thought she’d get a kick out of having a variety of bobby pins to wear over the holidays. Unfortunately, because of Covid, I am slow in getting this video uploaded.

I started with bobby pins you can get from Joanns..here’s a link to them. https://www.joann.com/hildie-jo-10-pk-metal-bobby-pins-silver/15988074.html

Snowflake buttons: https://www.joann.com/flair-originals-14-pk-snowflake-buttons/15243850.html When you use these buttons, they look better when you layer a smaller snowflake on top of a larger one so you can’t see the metal through the snowflake.

My mother’s old clip on earrings were easy to take apart. I simply bent the clip with jewelry pliers until it came off…and then I hot glued the earring to the bobby pin base. Make sure the flat part of the earring is glued to the base.

Hot glue works well to adhere most of the things I used, but if your hot glue doesn’t hold them, I recommend you trying E6000 glue along with hot glue for a better hold.
