DIY: Bobby Pin Statement Necklace

You never know when DIY inspiration will hit you. The other day I was lounging in bed watching Lara Spencer on Good Morning America talk about pandas or goats or something when her super fancy necklace caught my attention. It was gold, shiny and literally made me move closer to the TV for a better look! The necklace was gorgeous. It reminded me of something tribal or ancient Egyptian. I was inspired to get crafty…

Materials: Bobby Pins and Ribbon

Be creative when you add the bobby pins to your ribbon. Use different colors and create an interesting pattern… 8 gold, 2 back, repeat…

You can wear it as a statement necklace with your collar popped

Or you can button up your shirt and wear it as an under collar embellishment. There are a million different styling options for this necklace.

Who said bobby pins are just for your hair?

  3. Awesome! And, if anybody complains about fly-aways, you’re prepared! Have you seen this artist’s necklace? It’s similar, but I like how yours takes it to the next level.

  4. Gorgeous! I’d definitely wear something like that.
    If you wanted to get really fancy, you could take some fine craft wire and some beads and embellish the hairpins….
    Also, excited about your holiday DIY series. I want to make handmade gifts this year, but not everyone on my list will want jewelry. 🙂

    This is great! It’s simple, unique and fashionable. I do all kinds of wire work and have used anything and everything to create jewelry, but I would never have thought to use bobby pins.
