Make Your Own Button Barrettes

This tutorial is an easy way to make hair accessories.
It takes no more than 5-8 minutes to make one!
If you are a crafter, I'm sure you have all the supplies you'll need already!



What You Will Need:
-Buttons
-Thread
-Needle
-Bobby-Pins
-Super Glue or a Hot Glue Gun
-Scissors 






Lets Begin!!



Start by threading your needle.
Knot a loop at the end where you would usually double knot it.

-Pick out a button, put it on top of your bobby-pin.

-Sew the thread through the bobby-pin and the button holes once, then take your needle through the loop you knotted and pull it tight.


-Once you have secured the thread, continue to sew the button to the bobby-pin.

-When you are through sewing the button on, knot the thread.


Lay your new accessory on its head and glue the string to the button and bobby-pin.
NOTE:
SUPER GLUE: will keep your button attached permanently.
HOT GLUE: will allow you to take your button off if you ever need it again.


 Let it Dry.




YOU'RE FINISHED!!!






ENJOY!!!
