Hair jewelry - yep, that's what this is. I'm not really one for extravagant hair pieces like this, but when I thought about making this, I got excited. I don't know when I'm going to wear this but for sure I'll find an excuse to rock this sometime soon. Read more to learn how you can make your own!
Wood stars (got mine at Michaels)
Drill with 3/32 drill bit
Hot glue gun/E6000
Drill your stars as shown - two holes on the biggest (drill one hole each on two arms), one hole each for the medium and the small sizes. Sand holes and edges if needed.
Paint with nail polish. I so love crafting with nail polish, lol - you can use other methods of coloring this - I just really prefer nail polish on most of my crafts because it dries faster than most paint stuff and has more colors/finishes to choose from. Anyway, let that dry, paint the other side and let that dry as well.
Sandwich your tiny squares of felt between your bobby pins, then glue down (right side down) the back of the stars. Make sure you pay attention where the bobby pins are pointing to.
Now it's time to assemble it - just follow the image above and the detailed image below.
Make sure to cut the lower chain longer than the upper one (mine has excess of about 3 inches) so you get that nice drape. The star drop is optional - I just thought it would be really cute to add one.
Yay my head is dancing! Lol. Anyway, there you have it! Cute, right? Boho but cute, I would say. You can wear it with a bun or with your hair down - now to just find an occasion to wear this thing to...
What are your thoughts about this project? Cute or not for you - tell me in the comments! And as always, I hope you guys are having a great week!
