Whether you're trying to grow out stubborn bangs, or want something with a flash of original style; I think I'd have to say this is one of the
easiest and quickest projects, and it's perfect for Beginners.

Recently, I've began to notice that I have an over abundance of miscellaneous beads in my craft stash. There is not enough for a larger scale
project, but too many to just let go to waste. I decided to get
practical and put my supplies to good use, and this is what I came up
with.
♦♦♦♦♦
What you'll need:
A Hair Pin
20 gauge wire (best to use the same color wire as the hairpin)
Wire Cutters
Any Beads of Choice
(get creative, use gemstones, glass beads, pearls. even charms or buttons will work)
♦♦♦♦

♦♦♦♦
Using wire cutters, cut about a 6" (15.24 cm) of wire. wrap one end around the inside of the hairpin about 2 times. This will secure the starting
point of your project.
Once you have the wire secured to the hairpin, insert the first bead and tightly wrap the wire around the straight side of the hairpin.
Insert next bead, tightly wrap again around the straight side of the hairpin.
Repeat this until you are near the end.
When you are close to the end, wrap your wire around the base about 2 or 3 times.
♦♦♦♦♦
Once you have completed this step, your project should look a little like the photo below. Using your wire cutters, clip the extra wire as close
as possible to the hairpin at each end.
** Notice how the wire looks kind of like a coil on the inside of the hairpin? This was not intentional, but it actually turned out to be a
good thing. Those coils actually act as a comb and grasp the hair so
the pin stays in place.

♦♦♦♦♦
You're now done and have a beautiful hair pin to wear or give as a gift. When I made mine, I was very surprised to see that this fit snug and
securely on my very fine hair. Just goes to show that it's perfect for
all hair types. ENJOY!
