What do you need: Hair clip, 0.33mm jewelry wire, beads and clip (optional).
Step 1: Take a larger bead and place it in the middle of the hair clip. Using the ends of the wire around the clip, tie it there.
2nd step: Follow the same step using beads of different sizes. Use another thread every other row and continue to wrap it around the base to hold the beads in place.
Step 3: Once you’re at the end of the clip, add a final bead before securing it by wrapping the wire around the base and neighboring beads.
Step 4: Repeat the process for the second side of the bobby pin.
Step 5: Once you are done attaching the beads, wrap the remaining threads around the beads and the base until they meet in the middle.
Step 6: Once they are all in the middle, make sure the beads are in place before twisting the wires to tighten them on the clip.
Step 7: Trim the remaining threads and you’re ready to rock the clips in style!
