Vintage Rhinestone Button Hairpins

100_7076

I bought some vintage buttons on etsy (sorry, but I can’t remember what shop) to use for centers of fancy wool felt flowers.

Seems like I bought a few dozen of them, so I had spares.  I have used flat back or non shank buttons to make hair pins for my nieces.

So I cut the shank off these buttons and used E6000 to glue the buttons to the hairpins!  Very minimal cost and they are so cute!

I might be linking to some of these parties!

I make a lot of things, but last week I forked out big stupid bucks at anthro for very similar hair pins! Yours are gorgeous, and I'm going a hunting for fancy buttons to make my own! Thanks!

The rhinestone hair pins are so pretty. How clever of you to think of making such pretty hairpins that way. I'm wondering why I don't have any E-6000, duh, keep seeing it mentioned as being used by so many bloggers. Next time I'm in a craft store going to make sure I get some. Happy Week
