How to Make Button Hair Pins

I was browsing around the Apartment Guide blog and found an article about how to get creative with buttons. It mentioned an easy way to turn bobby pins into pretty hair pins by adding a button to the end. I'm always on the look out for frugal, green creative things to do, so, I gave it a try.

I think they turned out well. Very simple and pretty.

How many of us have extra buttons laying around? Lots, I'm sure!

To make some all you need to do is add a dot of strong glue (hot glue or gorilla glue) to the back of a button. Then lay the end of the bobby pin on top and leave it to dry.

Here are mine drying:

If you use Gorilla glue, allow to dry overnight.

I was surprised to find quite  a few helpful and fun posts on the Apartment Guide blog.
