How to Make Button Bobby Pins

Apr 02, 2012

Bobby pins may be one of the most useful hair accessories you can find, but they're not always the most stylish of hair accessories. Sewing a bright or fun button on your bobby pin brings a whole new dimension to your hairstyle and the best part is, it’s so incredibly easy!

Find buttons that work well with the hair color they’ll be pinning back. For example a dark button won’t be able to be seen in dark hair. Try for colors that accent the hair, but won’t get lost in the color. You can also find buttons that match the buttons you wear on your favorite clothes or even use the spare buttons that come with certain shirts or pants. Of course the possibilities are endless, so get creative!

Materials:

  • buttons
  • bobby pins
  • needle
  • thread
  • glue

Directions:

  1. Thread the needle and tie a big enough knot into the end of the thread so that it doesn’t slip through the buttonhole.
  2. Sew the button onto the end curve of the bobby pin. Make sure that the button is secured so that it faces upwards when you put the bobby pin in hair.
  3. Tie off the thread by sewing into the ending knot from step 1 and cut the thread. (Basically, you’re sewing on a button).
  4. Add a dollop of glue to the knot so that it holds and so that it secures the thread to the bobby pin. Without gluing the thread onto the bobby pin there’s the potential that the button could slip off the other end of the bobby pin.
  5. Let the glue dry completely. This is important, you don’t want to glue your button bobby pin to your hair! Unless you're looking for a permanent hairstyle.
  6. Enjoy your fun new hairstyle!

Making a few of these and pinning them to a card makes a great present for any friend. There's lots that can be done with boring old bobby pins!
