What you’ll need in Making DIY Hair accessory:
- Various Crystals (raw or polished)
- A Hair Comb or Pick
- Wire Cutter
- Jump Rings
- E6000 Craft Adhesive
1. Lay out the crystals
Place the crystals how you want them to look on the hair comb. You can alternate raw crystals with polished crystals for texture.
2. Attach the crystals
Using wire, wrap each crystal around the hair comb. Make sure to leave extra wire on both ends. Create an x shape on top of the crystal when you wrap. Do this for all crystals.
3. Attach a jump ring
Before you wrap the last crystal, attach the jump ring and chain in between one of the hair comb teeth. Then you can finish attaching the last crystal.
4. Secure the crystals
Once you’ve attached all the crystals, wrap everything with wire one or two more times. Bend the ends downwards so it doesn’t poke your head. Apply E6000 glue on the bottom portion where the crystal and the wire meet.
5. Create the Chain
Attach jump springs to both sides of a small crystal. Then cut the jump chain on the hair comb so you can place the crystal.
6. Finish the chain
Wrap 2 more crystals with wire, and leave a little eye on top. Then, attach them to the bottom of the jump chain.
And you’re done!
