Bead and Feather Strand Hairclip

Here is my next recreation of a hip hair accessory from the Renegade Craft Fair. 

These beaded feather hair clips are the perfect bohemian accessory.  They cost $250 but you can make them yourself for only $10.

These clips are inspired by the Paradise Collection by Jeeyun Ha Designs

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
Materials - totaling $15-20 (once you buy the initial materials the cost of making a second one goes down significantly, to about the cost of the beads)
1. Beads - $3-7, as many as you need depending on how many strands you want and length of strands, a couple grams of beads should cost you about $1 depending on type and store
2. Feathers - $2 bag of feathers (only use about 5-10 feathers, barely a dent), you can buy nicer more expensive feathers
3. Beading Thread - $0.89 for a bobbin of thread (you will used about 10 cents worth of thread)
4. Super Glue - approx. $4
5. Beading Needle - $0.89 for a pack of four
6. Hair Clips - $2 pack of 10 clips
7. Enamel (not necessary) - $8 for a set of small colored enamel paints

Step 2: Paint Hairclip

I bought metal hair clips but I didn't want the metal to show through.  Even though the clip will be covered with beads, I painted the clips with enamel to make sure none of the metal showed.

I used this nude color for the first layer but decided to paint over it with black near the end.  Doing this is up to you depending on how you want your clip to look.

Very pretty, and the hairclip is nice as well. I reckon I'll make a few for my sister, who's always putting stuff in her hair.

Gorgeous! You have to have the right features and a heckuva dose of "don't care" to pull it off, though, I think.
