Bling! Bling! Hairclips


Do you hate plain hairclips but still need a way to keep hair in place?  Try adding a little bling.

This project is quick and easy.   You will need:

Plain (metal) clips (12 for $1.00)
E6000 Industrial Glue (use in well ventilated place)  ($4.99)
Rhinestones  (I used Darice brand in 7mm size)  ($3.99 for 150 rhinestones)
Gemstone holder or tweezers (This is optional but really helps keep your beads clean and free of glue) ($2.99)

I purchased most of the supplies at either Joanne’s or Michael’s.

Step 1:  Wipe off  top of metal clip to make sure it is free of dust or oil

Step 2:  Squeeze a strip of glue along top of clip

Step 3:  Using gemstone holder place rhinestones on clip in a row.  You have a couple minutes to move them.  Try to keep the top as free of glue as possible.  You can slide them around to make sure they fit. 
Step 4:  Allow to dry 24 hours.  The rhinestones will stay and place.  They sparkle in the sunlight and also under lights.  Great way to dress up any outfit.
