Introduction: How to Make a Barbie Head Ring
Are you looking for a unique piece of jewelry to wear to a special event? You will be the envy of your crowd when sporting your very own Barbie Head Ring.
It's easy to make and is far less expensive than it looks.
What you need:
1 Barbie doll with long hair
Perhaps that is redundant. Do they even make Barbies with short hair?
Step 1: Step 1: Pick Out Your Barbie
I found a $5.00 Barbie at Walmart. She was dressed in a bathing suit and must have just gotten off the cruise ship visible over her left shoulder.
Step 2: Step 2: Remove Barbie's Head
This is far more difficult than it was when I was a child. I clearly recall having a bunch of headless Barbies in my bedroom.
Wiggle her head back and forth. Pull it. Wiggle some more. Pull harder. Twist. Grunt. Stand on her head and pull on her feet. Whatever works. You will get it off.
Barbie wasn't too happy about this.
Step 3: Step 3: Make the Ring Out of Her Hair
Pull a piece of hair from both sides of Barbie's head and tie the ends to make a ring. Ideally, you would use someone's finger to create the ring.
My husband refused to cooperate, so I decided to use Barbie's thigh as my proxy. My "body double", so to speak.
You will have to tie a triple knot since Barbie's hair is so sleek. You can also put glue on the knot to keep it in place.
Step 4: Step 4: Put It On!
You are ready for the red carpet!
