So, maybe I have a little thing lately for some European salutations. Or, maybe after the ‘Bonjour’ doormat, I felt compelled to redeem myself! Regardless, I’m not usually one for sweet, girly things, but something about the warmer weather and the impending summer makes me yearn for more bright, cheery, feminine details in my life. I have had these hairpins on my editorial calendar forever and kept pushing them back because I didn’t want to take that next step into wearable DIYs (read: fashion), but after such an amazing response to my little Hong Kong fashion challenge, I am so excited to share with you a sweet accessory DIY today. This project takes just a few common items and can be done for less than just a couple cents each. That’s right… a couple of cents.
These lacquered message hair pins are made from just a few really simple things… alphabet pasta and nail lacquer. That’s right. This is mature pasta art at it’s best.
A lot different than the noodle art you made back in school, right? I’m thinking that the possibilities could be endless here! Monograms, names, funny words… unfortunately, pasta art doesn’t come with hashtags, or else I would have definitely done something with those. A nice, classic LOL would be darling however (can you hear my sarcasm?)
