As you know, I’ve been on a bit of a hair accessory kick lately. I love the sparkly baubles to put in my hair, but I really hate paying much for them. A few weeks ago, I showed you this Vintage Button Hair Bauble I made from some of Nana’s button collection. Today, I thought I’d show you how I made this sequined heart.
For this, I just layered sequins onto a piece of wool felt one night while watching Pitch Perfect. (Seriously, how much do you adore that movie?)
Tip: Use real wool felt. It’s heftier than the cheaper synthetic stuff and will keep its shape.
As you can see, this time I used a piece of paper to try to prop the clip open against the hot glue. While it did the trick or helping me not glue the clip shut, it left behind some paper. So not only does it look terrible; it also makes the piece harder to take in and out.
After experimenting a bit more, I’d just recommend holding the clip open. The glue doesn’t take very long to dry.
After the last hair post, I got several questions (on the post and via social media) about how I do my hair. I’ll post a video of that soon!
