So along with this DIY, I'm also trying out a new photo editing site called PicMonkey. So that's why all my pictures have such lovely effects. Let me know what you think!
These are my bobby pin earrings that I talked about doing in this post. Mine are slightly different than the tutorial I followed. I used bigger pins and different colors, but the concept is still the same.
- Craft wire
- Earring hooks
- Bobby pins
- Nail polish
Start by painting your pins.
If you bought your pins new, keep them on the little cardboard piece that they came on. This helps them keep them straight when you are painting them. If they aren't new, pin then on something that will keep them straight.
Simply tape off the areas you want to paint, and paint whatever pattern you like. I just stuck with easy stripes. You could do chevron, diamonds, etc. Whatever you want.
Let your paint dry and carefully feel back the tape.
Next, prepare your wire. I cut two strips of metal wire and twisted them around each other. Take your pins off your cardboard piece, and slip on to the wire. Shape your wire and attach your hook. Wrap once again around for security and cut the excess off.
Repeat these steps for the second earring.
Totally cool, right? And if you ever need a pin to hold your hair back, just slip one off your earring and you're good to go!
I hope you enjoyed this DIY! Please give me feedback on what you'd like to see here! I'm taking requests! :)
