For the twentieth day of A Gift a Day, I made diamond bobby pins.
Diamond Bobby Pins
Using wire cutters, I cut apart a broken cubic zirconia necklace. I used bobby pins that I already had on hand.
E6000 Glue or super glue
toothpick for applying glue
|Ahh! A paper towel! (yes, I do occasionally use them. This is one of the ways I use them–when there is glue or paint involved).
This entire project took me about 10 minutes to make. I let the bobby pins dry for several hours before moving them.
These cost me $0 out of pocket (a few cents for glue) since I already had everything on hand.
My daughter had been really wanting some bobby pins like these, and a few days before her birthday she asked me what she should do with her broken necklace. I asked her if I could use it. I gave these to her for her birthday and she was thrilled.
