For next to nothing, you can make a gorgeous hair pin! These work best when placed in an up-do or bun. They only take a few minutes and look so pretty in your hair. Give them as gifts, wear them yourself, sell them. Bet you can't make just one! :)

Total Time: 10 minutes

Source: Saw these for sale online and decided to make my own. :)


  • long nosed pliers
  • wire cutters
  • bobby pin
  • large bead


  1. Cut a 13" length of wire and place your bead in the center.
  2. Twist the wire a couple of times right below the bead.
  3. Straighten the ends again and thread both ends through the loop of the bobby pin.

  5. Spread the ends apart.
  6. Start wrapping one end of the wire in a circular motion around the base of the bead.
