Who doesn't like a little something sparkly and pretty for your hair?
I do I DO!
Here is my go at a FREE VERSION. I threw open my craft closet door and used only what was in stock: Glitter, glitter glue, hair pins and thick card-stock.... here we go!
Pretty simple to make. Here are some key tips & tricks.
*Make sure you use a very thick card-stock. Thicker the better. That way it will last longer and won't fall apart after one use! *Use glitter glue, not regular craft glue. It is the variation of glitter sizes that makes this hair pin look fab. If you can, use a variety of loose glitter sizes as well. This gives the hair pin a more expensive feel, and little less 'crafty'... nothing wrong with crafty, but sometimes you just don't want to look it. *Once you sprinkle the loose glitter on to the stars, let them sit for 10-20 minutes then coat with the clear coat to secure the glitter. Two coats is best. *Hot glue the flat side of the hair pin to the star. Be careful not to glue the pin shut!
Layer away! I like to create a variety of sizes of the pins and use more than one at a time. And don't just limit yourself to stars. Hearts, flowers, smiley faces... what ever floats your boat. The stars feel very new year's eve-y right? Hummm... wonder what we will be doing for NYE... ok, I am getting way ahead of myself ;)
