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
needle and thread
plain hair clip
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.
