How To: Turn a Vintage Earring into a 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.
