DIY Sparkle Barrettes


It’s time to bust out the sparkle (or upgrade to some serious bling, if you’re already the glittery type), because the holidays are here! I thought these ban.do barrettes were perfect for making hair “party ready” in seconds, with minimal effort. Here’s how to DIY your own, with simple supplies from the drug store and craft store.

Tools and materials:
Glitter
Mod Podge or other adhesive/sealant
Paint brush
Barrettes
Sandpaper (optional) 
width=Sand the the barrettes to roughen the surface. This way, the Mod Podge will better adhere to the plastic barrette.


Using the paint brush, apply a layer of Mod Podge.

Shake on the glitter, covering the whole surface. Let dry, and apply more Mod Podge and glitter, if necessary. Let dry.




Add a final coat of Mod Podge or another sealant, and let dry (last time, I promise!).

Have fun sparkling!
