Hey guys, welcome back today on the Untidy Artist were making glitter bobby pins. This is a fast and very easy tutorial on how to make a fun and really glittery and sparkly hair accessory that’s very inexpensive.Let’s grab some supplies and get started.

The first thing you’ll need is some bobby pins. These are just some basic bobby pins that I had at my house. If you want to make it fancy then go right ahead. These are sorta me, then I found these bigger bobby pins. So it’s really just up to you. Then you’ll need some Mod Podge glue. Then you’ll need some glitter that are your favorite colors. I found this super fine glitter, it seems to work the best it’s also a lot more sparkly. I will be using turquoise. Then you’ll need something sturdy to attach the bobby pins to while your putting the glue on. You can either use a piece of card stock, I have an old envelope here. Then you’ll also need a piece of paper, this is just regular sized paper folded in half. Then a small paintbrush to apply your glue with.

The first step is to grab your bobby pins. There are two sides to a bobby pin the curvy side and the smooth flat side. You can decide which side you want to apply the glitter on. Some people like to put the smooth side on the top which means that the bumpy side of the bobby pin will just hold your hair better underneath. I really like to use the smooth side underneath. Go ahead and attach your bobby pin to a piece of card stock or your envelope. Take your glue and with your little paint brush start to apply an even layer of the glue on top of the bobby pin. Once you have a nice layer of glue on the bobby pin, This next part is important. Make sure that there is no glue underneath the bottom of the bobby pin holding it next to the paper. I like to lift my bobby pin up and slide it over to a spot where there’s no glue underneath. if there’s any little spots you’ve missed you can always go back and add a little dab of glue. now open up your folded piece of paper. You’re going to dump a lot of glitter over the bobby pin. Cover it nicely, then I tap my card stock or my envelope so all the excess glitter comes off. Then you can fold the piece of paper in half, then carefully pour the glitter back in to your container so that you can use the glitter later. Then let your bobby pin dry, if you like to once it’s dry you can go back and add another layer of glue and another layer of glitter which will give you a deep more thicker glitter so it will look more sparkly.

I am "The" untidy artist.

I was born in Highland Utah. I'm married with 4 crazy kids. My husband is always on my case about cleaning my craft room (blah blah blah). Both of my parents were artists and I think I got some of their artistry bug in me. A few years ago I started messing around with hair accessroies and had so many people ask to purchase them that I decided to start teaching others how to make them. That turned into my Youtube channel and this website. Hope you enjoy the tutorials!!!
