Make Your Own Hair Accessories

Oversized hair clips are quite trendy lately. They are easy to use, they look great in all lengths and types of hair, and they give a little pop of interest to your outfit. Pearl, raffia-wrapped, and statement clips are having their heyday, so why don’t you have a bit of crafting fun and make your own? Just buy craft supplies online, including a pack of plain hair clips, to create some unique hair accessories. Here are a few ideas.

Pearl Clip

If you include a bag of faux pearls when you buy craft supplies online, you can make an easy pearl clip. You can use all one size of pearl or different sizes. Use hot glue to attach the pearls, or you can also use super glue gel. If the pearls have holes for stringing, place the holes facing each other so you can’t see them. You may want to use tweezers or needle-nose pliers to place really small beads. Make sure to let the glue fully set until your clip is ready to wear.

Raffia Clip

If you get a bag of colored raffia when you buy craft supplies online, you can make a raffia clip. You will need to use either a rectangular clip or one that has the cutout in the middle so that you can wrap raffia all the way around the frame. Hot glue works well for this clip, as you can glue it to the frame and then wrap it around itself a few times for stability. Just keep wrapping until the whole thing is covered and glue the end in place underneath the clip.
