Hair accessories are having a moment in 2019 and there is no slowing down, we absolutely love it.I first noticed this on the runway during fashion week in 2018 but now there seems to be a full explosion of hair accessories . Instagram is loaded with different variations from hairclips, headbands, scrunchies to scarves. we love the childhood memories they bring back to us.

If you are yet to cop any of these accessories , don’t sweat it as we have a tutorial that would show you how to make your own velvet Barrette

THE VELVET BARRETTE

What you Need:

velvet trim (2 yards)

flat faux pearl

adhesive

needle and thread

plain hair clip

METHOD

Cut two different lengths of your velvelt ribbon, mine was 8inches and 10 inches respectively. join both ends together using your adhesive and you would have two loops.

Stack the two pieces on too of each other with the smaller one on top and you would have something like this.

Cut out a new strip of the velvet ribbon and attach a faux pearl in the middle using thread and needle.

next step is to wrap the first two ribbons with the pearl embellished one and you would have something like this.

Cut out two equal strips of the velvet ribbon  and attach to the back using your adhesive. trim off the edges slantly and burn off to avoid fraying.

Attach your faux pearl  round the entire ribbon.it is advisable to mark with chalk before attaching the pearl.

Attach the velvet barrette to a hair clip using the E-600 adhesive.

 

Voila! Your DIY barrette is ready.
