20 DIY Hair Bling

20 DIY Hair Bling

Sources for all the photos shared can be found HERE.

Putting together these composites has become a new passion of mine. Why share just 1 thing when I can share several… or in this case 20! I didn’t plan on sharing 20 hair accessories. For some reason I usually like to share 11. What can I say, 11 is a prime number. I’m a fan of prime numbers, but I digress. Anyway… I started collecting a few barrettes and headbands and the next thing I knew, I was up to 20. Actually, I didn’t want to stop but I showed at least a modicum of self-restraint and walked away from the computer.

Buying hair bling is quite expensive so why spend the money when you can make them for a fraction of the cost and have all the fun of crafting your little heart out? Even if you don’t wear doodads in your hair, bet you know someone that does. All of these hair accessories have tutorials and most of them are insanely easy to make. So easy that you might want to invite a few friends, even quite young friends, to join you in the merry making… or I suppose I should say bling making.

So scroll down the list, visit the links to the tutorials, then gather some supplies together and have a blast!
