I have loads of bobby pins sitting around my house, and in almost every room of the house. I use them in hair a lot. They are great for pinning down stray hairs, or helping to complete your hairstyle.
But sometimes, they are just too plain for me. I couldn't help but think that there has to be way to doll them up and then it hit me: I could paint them! It's perfect! I could paint them in several different colors.
And this is such an easy and fast project.
Cardstock paper (or any paper could work)
1. I wanted something that allowed me to keep the bobby pins still and not have me touch them, so I chose to slip the bobby pins over some cardstock paper. It was thick and sturdy enough so the bobby pins wouldn't slide off.
2. Next, I got out some of my nail polish colors and painted the top of my bobby pins. Nail polish? I'm sure you could use paint but I chose nail polish because I already had it on hand and it had a small brush making it easier to apply.
