Tuesday Tip: Glam Up Your Bobby Pins

Tend to throw some bobby pins in your hair to keep your hair out of your face or just for a little something different than keeping it all down?  Well I do and the other day I came up with this brilliant idea and don’t know why I hadn’t thought of it earlier, and don’t get too excited, it’s nothing that hasn’t been done before millions of times, the thought had simply never crossed my mind until a couple weeks ago.  Sorry for that run-on sentence that perhaps was incomplete also.

Anyway, glam up your plain ol’ bobby pins by using a hot glue gun to add gems to them.  Just add one for a touch of sparkle or two or three to catch someone’s eye, and if you’re really daring, you can make a statement by blinging the whole thing out.  So easy to do!  You’ll see I got a bit carried away!

Oh, and you can add buttons or pearls to them too.  Really, whatever you can get to stick on them!  Go ahead, make yourself some today!
