Button Bobby Pins


Button PinsI hope everyone had a great Christmas, and I can personally tell you that I’m super sad to see it go.  I don’t like it when the holiday season is over, and I will miss telling everyone I see “Merry Christmas!”  But, if I’m looking on the bright side – one good thing that I can now do, is share with everyone this really cute, easy bobby pin that I made for a friend and my sister.

I’ve got a good friend who is super crafty, and the things she can do with simple pieces of nothing amazes me!  I was struggling with what to get her for Christmas, and I had a genius idea.  I’ve always told a few men in passing, that if he really wanted to open a women’s heart, he should look at her Pinterest and recreate something there.  It is thoughtful, and shows that you really care about her!  Well, I’m not a man, but I did look at her Pinterest to find something I could give her.  I went to her DIY board, and found these really cute Button Bobby Pins and I just happened to have a nice box of buttons that I could use.

What you will need

Buttons
Bobby pins
Black small ribbon
Hot glue gun

material1. This first step can be different everytime, depending on what look you want to go for.  I made some pins with just one button, and then some of them I double or tripled up the buttons.  But, your first step will be to thread your ribbon through your button(s).  When you thread the ribbon through, make sure that your ribbon comes out almost equal on both sides.

2. Attach the button to the bobby pin.  When doing this, make sure the button is sitting properly on the bobby pin.  The button design should be sitting on top of the bobby pin (the same side as the curves in the bobby pin).  When you are attaching, bring one end of the ribbon through the bobby pin from one direction, and the other piece of ribbon from the opposite direction.

3. Tie the two pieces of ribbon together, really tightly.
