Five fun DIYs with Bobby Pins

Bobby pins, a girl’s best friend when you need that little extra oomph to hold you hair in place. However, simply slapping in a plain old bobby pin into your perfectly coiffed style sometimes just doesn’t cut it, and hiding it underneath your hair just isn’t an option. A big old pin sticking out like a sore thumb can really downgrade a fabulous look. So what do you do? Don’t sweat it, we’ve got you covered!

Here are five fun and easy DIYs to transform that boring old bobby pin into a mini statement piece.

Baubles and Buttons:

Use some vintage buttons, old jewelry, or simply dig around for some pretty little items in your craft drawer. Just a drop of hot glue and you’re all set!
