|Before: button and bobby pin|
Adding buttons to bobby pins is a great way to turn an ordinary object into an amazing fashion accessory. Buttons harvested from old clothes, found buttons and buttons leftover from sewing projects are all good choices for this project.
JB Weld or glue of your choice
Select a button with a shank.
Slide the button on the bobby pin.
|After: hair pin by GeltDesigns.com|
Glue the button on to the bobby pin. We used JB Weld because we glued a plastic button to a metal bobby pin but we may have used a different glue if we used a button or a bobby pin made of a different material. Allow the glue to cure overnight or according to the glue manufacturer's instructions.
