Beaded Barrette-- Wayward Style

I am in barrette mode! I made one tonight and have another one planned. The one definitely went wayward, though.

This is what you need for the beaded barrette.

I thought I would need the clear beading string, but it turns out you don't. That Bead Fix Glue--- it really works.
So.... after I freed my wayward fingers, I realized I wouldn't need to secure the beads with string.
Just carefully spread the glue on the barrette and press the beads down firmly. I did the one by one. The glues dries quickly.

The thing I didn't do was space out the beads in advance. The barrette shows at one end so I used my trusty Rubn' Buff to make it a little prettier. I did that everywhere I could see the silver part.

It isn't perfect, but it is something I will wear.  Glad I just dyed my hair!

I'd wear it! I only have two barrettes that I have that obviously don't match with everything. I should make some of my own!

Your barrettes turned out wonderfully.
Trying not to laugh at the glued fingers...only because I have done the same thing.
Did you dye your hair because you didn't want it to look like tinsel was in it like mine, lol.
