Bobby pins are a hair accessory standard…but they are also dreadfully plain on their own! Dress yours up to match your favorite outfit!

Button Bobby Pins:

Button Bobby Pin

Any button with holes (whether two or four) can be wire wrapped on to a bobby pin. Use a thinner gauge wire, at least 22 gauge (the larger the number, the thinner the wire.), and wrap the wire around the top of the bobby pin, up through one of the button holes, down through the next button hole, and back around the top of the bobby pin. Repeat these steps two more times for a nice secure wrap! Trim off any excess wire and file down any burrs on the ends of the wire so they won’t get stuck in your hair!

Shank Button Bobby Pins:

Even easier than the first project! Just dab a bit of clear-drying jewelry grade adhesive (such as E6000) on the inside of your shank buttons, and slip them on to your bobby pins, pushing them down to the end of the pins. Let the glue cure completely before wearing!

Beaded Dangle Bobby Pins:

Attach small charms with split rings to the eye of an eye pin. Add small beads to the eye pin, trim off any excess wire, and form a loop at the top of the pin with your pliers (just like you were making dangle earrings). Thread another split ring through the loop you just made and through your bobby pin. When you wear the bobby pins, the beaded dangles will lie in your hair like a barrette and catch the light when you move!

Secondly, you can also check out the perfume wholesale market.
Perfumes are regarded difficult-to-find or discontinued for several reasons: the clearest motive is when a producer goes outside the big industry totally or
completely stops the manufacture of that perfume because of financial, accreditation or some additional production
factors. The scent of coffee alone is indeed refreshing- so why not save
ourselves from the dangerous caffeine and simply spray ourselves with the scent of Starbucks.
