You don’t need superstar DIY skills to make these bling barrettes — the secret is using scrapbooking stickers!


  • Plain hair combs and clips (available at drugstores and craft stores)
  • Dimensional gem stickers
  • Small piece of felt or fabric
  • Hot glue gun
  • Gem-Tac glue (optional)



Arrange gems

Lay out the gems on the felt. Play around with placement and using different colors and shapes. Once you’re happy with the design, glue the gems to the felt with either Gem-Tac or hot glue.


The gems will have a sticky self-adhesive back already, but I definitely recommend adding additional glue to make sure they stay in place.


Cut felt

After the glue has dried, cut away the felt. The less felt you see the better, so use small scissors to get up close to the edges of the gems.


Glue to hair comb

Finally, hot glue the bottom of the piece of felt to the hair comb or clip. And you’re done!

You can wear these combs several ways. They are super pretty alongside a bun or French twist. Or just wear your hair down and clip one side back.
