I’m loving the outsized stylish hair clips recently—they’re simple to make use of in all lengths and forms of hair and there are completely different types you can select from so as to add somewhat pop of curiosity to your hair and general outfit. Proper now, the pearl, raffia-wrapped, and assertion clips are having their heyday, so I believed it will be enjoyable to purchase a pack of hair clips and make one in all every for my hair accent assortment. They’re tremendous quick and straightforward to make, so you may make a number of in a single sitting. Right here’s what I did:
-large hair clips (I used these)
-hot glue gun
-super glue (that is fingers down my favourite one to make use of)
-faux pearls (I used completely different sizes, so one thing like this can be good to get)
-large novelty patch (I used this thick leather-like sticker for mine, however this may be good too)

Relying on what hair clip you get, you might be able to use scorching glue to connect your pearls, however they popped off fairly simply once I tried that with mine, so I used the tremendous glue gel as an alternative for a stronger maintain. If you happen to get pearl beads which have holes in them for stringing, simply be sure to put the bead with the holes dealing with the perimeters and never the highest so that you received’t discover them when the clip is completed. For bigger beads, you need to use your fingers to put them on dots of glue, however you might have considered trying tweezers or needle-nose pliers if attempting to put actually small beads. Let the glue absolutely set and your clip is able to put on!
Raffia clip: You’ll need to use both an oblong clip for this one or one which has the cutout within the center like mine does so you may wrap it across the body all the way in which round. Sizzling glue labored nicely for this clip as I might glue it to the body after which wrap it round itself a number of occasions for stability after which simply maintain wrapping till the entire thing was coated. Glue the tip in place beneath the clip and I might additionally counsel glueing it in place occasionally as you wrap so it received’t all unravel in the event you let go.
Assertion clip: This one is the simplest and but so enjoyable! Simply discover a patch that you simply like that works along with your form and dimension of clip and glue it on to your clip! Tremendous cute concept for teenagers too.
