DIY Hair Accessories: Turn a Vintage Earring into an Unique Hair Pin


Happy Memorial Day! Hope you are having a wonderful time with family and friends! Let's not forget what this day is truly about, though. Take a moment to pray for those who have lost loved ones and for those who are still fighting for our freedom. Now, for the tutorial...
 
Do you ever buy a pair of earrings and think, "I don't know if I'll ever wear these, but they're so cute!" Well, that's what I did with these vintage earrings that I found at a garage sale. I bought them, but never wore them. So, I decided to give one of the earrings new life by turning it into a hair pin (and then I shared it on Crafting a Green World).

What You Will Need:

 1. A hair pin. I used a bobby pin but you could use another hair accessory, too.

2. An earring, brooch, or button. There are so many possibilities! Maybe even a tiny toy for a little girl?

3. Hot glue and hot glue gun

4. Pliers and/or scissors

 How To Do It:

1. If you have an earring or a brooch, you'll need to remove the back pointy piece. I used a combination of scissors and pliers.. and begging my roomie to help me get it off. I'm such a baby!

2. Carefully hot glue the earring to the top of your hair pin. I glued mine to the end of the pin, but you can always play around with the placement.

 That's all, folks! I've already worn this cutie several times and I love, love, love it! Go through your jewelry or even your craft supplies and find that awesome earring, button, or brooch that
can be transformed into an unique hair accessory!

If you have any ideas of what I should do with the other earring, leave me a comment below! A ring, perhaps!?
