Fashionable Hair pins

I love hair pins.  For both adults and children.  Here's a quick way to make inexpensive fashionable hairpins for you, your child, or just to give away as a fun, easy gift.

Brads/Cute embellishments
Decorative bobby pins
Paint brush
Needle nose pliers
Wire cutters
Hot glue gun


Select the brad for your hairpin.  Trim the metal tacks on the back of the brads and flatten the remaining pieces.

Cut a small circle of felt.  Insert between the hairpin.  Place some hot glue on the felt.

Place the flattened brad onto the hot blue and press, holding securely for a second or two.  Let dry. 

Adorable hairpins!
