DIY hair pin

_MG_9996


a cheap bride's gotta do what a what a cheap bride's gotta do.

so, i absolutely love bhldn's dewed vines hairpin, but there's no way i'm gonna pay $140, even if it might be for my wedding. so here is my ghetto version (still a work in progress). i had some beads lying around and bought some gold wire for a few bucks at joann's. this isn't a tutorial by any means, i barely knew what i was doing. just a lot of guessing and twisting until kind-of resembled the original.

those actually look super pretty. I love that they're imperfect and it'll mean a lot more to you that you made them yourself.

They look great :)
How do you make the beads stick at the end of the wire? I'm asking cause I have absolutely no manual skills ;)

@lampart

actually the beads aren't stuck there! i strung the wire through the bead and just twisted it tightly, does that make sense? hope it helps!
