DIY: SHELL BARRETTES AND HAIR PINS

DIY shell hair barettes for boho braids

Seashell everything is trending this summer and I am here for it! AS FL gal myself, I love the texture and unique colors shells bring to the table. Plus, the extra kick of earth tones brings in the beach goddess, glowy vibes ;)

For this DIY I'm going to show the EASIEST way to add some summer flair to your boho hairstyles.

SUPPLIES

  • shells of your choice
  • bobby pins or barrettes
  • super glue
  • scissors
  • tweezers (optional)

HOW TO

  1. Gather your shells. I found this vintage shell necklace at an Estate sale and dismantled it for this project.
  2. Adhere shells to you pins or barrettes using superglue. I used tweezers for this to avoid getting it on my hands. (No one wants to mess up freshly painted nails.)
  3. Let the glue dry and add in another layer of shells if you'd like!

I love the way these turned out, and next time I'm going to try our a hair comb like the one I wore in our wedding so I can layer on more color and give a faux shell crown effect. This would be cute to wear in the back for a half up half down look, or on the side with a simple beachy wave.
