I love hair accessories especially during the holidays when I am out and about attending holiday parties and events. I love how easily they can dress up a simple hairstyle, or enhance any look. What I do not love is the high prices stores expect me to pay for them.
If you're looking to save some cash without compromising your holiday looks, you can duplicate these high fashion hair accessories at home for a fraction of the cost.
Big, bright and beautiful earrings
An easy and quick way to dress up your curls is to throw on some big colorful earrings and earrings could not be easier to make.
What you need:
You can find decorative jewelry components in the jewelry section of your local craft store.
Cost: Gold and Blue = $1.50 each. Red = $.75 each
The bigger the better with curly hair. We need those earrings to stand out among all our curls. The craft store I went to had a wide variety of styles and shapes! Don’t be afraid to try something new this holiday. Go big, go bold, go beautiful!
Cost: $.74 for a pack of 8
Needle-nose pliers: (I borrowed my husband's but you can pick these up at the craft store as well. )
Cost: $7.00 to $8.00
How to create your big, beautiful and bright earrings
Take your pliers and pry open the small hook/loop on the earning wire. Pry it open just enough to slip your decorative earring component through. Once your decorative earning component is on the wire, take the pliers and gently close the loop to ensure the decorative part doesn’t slip off. Viola! You have some big beautiful and bold earrings to wear to you next holiday event. These are sure to attract some attention.
