Hey DIY babes! It’s the most wonderful day of the week… and today’s extra special because I made a video of this project for you! In this post, I’m sharing how to make these gorgeous, DIY Twisted Bridal Hair Pins and believe me when I say it’s easier than you think. I was actually surprised at how easy they were to make; they just take time and you don’t want to rush the process. Each one took me about and hour and a half, but I put on some good music, poured myself some wine and got to twisting! Let me know what you think of the video, if you like it – I might just share more!

How-To Make Your Own Twisted Bridal Hair Pin:



SUPPLIES:

  • 26 Gauge Beading Wire (copper, gold, or silver)
  • Pretty Little Beads
  • Mini Plier Set
  • Hair Pins

STEPS:

  1. Gather your supplies and set yourself up on a piece of felt or fabric, so your beads don’t roll around on you.
  2. Cut a piece of wire about 9″ long and fold it in half, add a bead or two, pinch and twist for about a 1/2″.
  3. Bend one side of the wire up to form another twisted arm. Add a bead or two and twist. Then twist with the other wire about 1/8″.
  4. Keep bending and twisting until you’re happy with the look of your “vine”.
  5. Wrap an individual vine to a hair pin or gather several and wrap them together and to the pin for a fuller look.
  6. Make and wear one or as many as you’d like!

TIPS:

  • Be gentle with yourself. Don’t expect to get it perfect on your first try, it takes a few times to get used to the wrapping technique.
  • If you bend the wire back and forth too much it will break. Re-wrap and use what you can if that happens.
  • Cut more wire than you need, you can always cut excess off, but you can’t glue it back on.
  • Hair pins work better than bobby pins, but use what you have and save some money.
  • You can use any pretty beads that you find. If you love the bead – it will look gorgeous in your hair.
  • Add a blue (or turquoise) bead like I did to the copper design as your “something blue”.
  • Take this hair pin with you when you visit your hair dresser for your trial wedding hair style.
