These pins are an easy and elegant touch to a messy bun or updo!
Some (most) days I haven't got the time to fuss with my hair so as much as I'd wanna rock the freshly-rolled-out-of-bedhead look, I don't think I could pull it off without looking like a frazzled zombie. I have yet to perfect the "messy bun" look since I have naturally thin hair, so I just throw it up in a normal bun dressed up with few pearl-topped bobby pins. These are fantastically simple (and cheap!) to make but makes a bun look so elegant. If these look familiar to you, I had made my friend Debbie a set of these for Day 1 of my DIY Advent Calendar!

1. Slip a bead onto your head pin. If you don't have a headpin, cut a 3" long piece of wire and make a loop at the end with your jewelry pliers. Bend down the whole loop at a right angle so it is perpendicular to the rest of the wire.
2. Bend the wire under your bead at a right angle as shown.
3. Loop it onto your bobby pin and begin wrapping your wire in and out of the pin.
