Materials:

  • Barrette
  • Wire
  • Butons Galore & More, "Bridal Bouquet"
  • Scissors
  • Pliers

Instructions:

  1. Carefully take apart the barrette, so you may easily wrap the wire into place.

  2. Cut an 18" piece of the wire. Thread it through one hole. Twist the tail and the main body of the wire together using the needle nose pliers. Clip away the excess tail. Pull the wire across the barrette and through the hole opposite.

  3. Bring the wire up to the side and thread three beads onto it. Wrap the wire around the shaft of the barrette. Repeat. On the third wrap, pick up a button and wrap it in place. Brin the wire up and proceed to add three more beads and wrap. Repeat the beads twice more and then add another button. Continue with this pattern: 3 wraps of beads, each wrap with 3 beads, followed by a button wrap. End with two wraps of beads, each wrap with 3 beads at the point where you began with the twisted wire.

  4. Thread the remaining wire through the hole where you began. Wrap around the end and back through the hole. Slide the remainder under the wraps. Clip excess if necessary. Use pliers to crimp wire at any spots that seem a bit loose. Slip the spring arch back into place and then the bar. Test closure to be certain all is tight.
