Beaded Hair Clip
As many of you know hairclips are back.I wore these when I was in high school and now my daughter and her friends are wearing them. In anticipation of the trend we ordered the clips and and want to share this simple project with you.
1 Hairclip w/ hole for beading
27 - 4mm glass beads
1 foot Soft Flex Wire (SFW)
1 yard 28g craft wire
10" assorted beads
2 charms or feathers
3 Crimp Beads
Crimp pliers (optional)
Step 1 - Thread all of the 4mm beads onto the 28g wire leaving a 2" tail on one side, twist the two tail pieces together.
Step 2 - Place the beaded loop onto the top side of the hair clip and feed the tail into the loop.
Step 3 - Wrap the long wire around the barrette looping it between the 4mm beads until you have come full circle and twist the wire to the short tail end. Tuck end down.
Step 4 - Thread the SFW through the hole in the hairclip and slide the crimp bead up the two ends of the wire and crimp to secure.
Step 5 - Add beads to the wires ending with a crimp bead and charm.
