How To: Turn a Vintage Earring into an Unique Hair Pin
Give your earrings, brooches, or buttons new life by transforming them into a unique hair pin!
What You Will Need:
1. A hair pin of some sort. I used a bobby pin.
2. An earring, brooch, or botton. I used a vintage earring that I bought at a garage sale.
3. Hot glue/hot glue gun
4. Pliers and/or scissors
How To Do It:
1. If you have an earring or brooch, you’ll need to remove the back piece. I used a combination of pliers and scissors to remove the back part of my earring.
2. With your hot glue gun, carefully glue the earring to the top of your hair pin. I glued mine to the end part of the pin, but the placement is up to you.
Can you believe that’s it? Now I have a one-of-a-kind hair pin that matches my style. I can’t wait to make more DIY hair accessories like these from Feedgood Style, these that are made with recycled materials, and this awesome 5 minute headband!
