Wildflower Hairpins

About this design:

With just some wire and your favorite Czech glass or gemstone beads, you can easily create your own unique hairpins.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Hairpins
  • 10" piece of 24 or 26 Gauge Wire
  • Czech Glass Hibiscus Flowers
  • Czech Glass 3x5mm Faceted Rondelles

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Wrap the end of the wire about 6 times around the top of the hairpin.
Step 2:
With the flat side of the hairpin facing up, slide a flower coin onto the wire. Wrap the wire around the hairpin a few times- until the coin feels secure.
Step 3:
Slide 6 rondelles onto the wire.
Step 4:
Wrap the wire around each rondelle (attaching them to the hairpin)- working your way back up toward the flower coin. Wrap the remaining wire a few times around the hairpin- in between the flower coin & the first rondelle. Snip off the excess wire & press the end down with pliers to secure.

    I admire this very much – but no way will it stay in baby-fine hair unless the hair is already strictly bound!

    When I first saw these lovelies I could see a little girl about 7 years old wearing them and proudly showing them to everyone. Truly a sweet idea and little girls would love them. Hey, I like them too but grily-girl is not my style.

    uh-oh…grily-girl? That is no ones style… How about girly-girl? I can’t believe I made that goof. The fingers are willing but the mind drifts………
