DIY Hair ClipsWhy spend a fortune on hair clips when you can make your own custom ones?! This is definitely a project that once you know how to do it, you won’t be able to stop. Plus how great would these be packaged on cute paper or in a box as a gift?! Here’s how to make these DIY Hair Clips in just a few simple steps:

DIY Hair ClipsMaterials

Clip mold + clips
– Glitter ( I used this and this)
E-6000 glue
– Gloves, paper cup, wooden stir stick

If you plan on making a bunch of hair clips, I suggest that you buy a few sets of molds. This will help you be able to make larger batches at once. You don’t have to use glitter for your designs for this to work– you can customize your clips with whatever additives or colors that you want!

DIY Hair ClipsMix your resin together according to the manufacturer instructions and then add your glitter.  Be careful not to add too much glitter (or other additive) otherwise your resin may not harden. Each clip really only needs a small amount of resin.

If you’re new to working with resin, I have a few other projects in the DIY archives or you can grab my top resin tips in my book Hello Color.

DIY Hair ClipsOnce your resin has hardened (Leave it for a least 24 hours), remove from the mold. Attach your clips to a piece of cardboard and apply a small coat of E-6000 glue to the top. Attach your resin piece and then allow to dry flat for another 24 hours.

When completely dry, remove from the cardboard and it’s ready to wear!

DIY Hair ClipsThey really are super easy to make and the customization possibilities are endless (would be great two-toned, or with dried flowers)! Let me know if you give this one a try– I can’t wait to hear how they turn out!
