Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather Supplies
Remember to plug in your hot glue gun!
Step 2: Remove Wire and Cap
Do this carefully, because the wire might go flying out of your hands.
Step 3: Replace Wire With Bobby Pin
Point the prong ends of the bobby pin away from the ornament, and wiggle the bent end into the ornament cap.
Step 4: Put Hotglue in Ornament Neck
Dab hotglue into the opening of the ornament, making sure to also dab some on the lip of the ornament neck.
Step 5: Put Cap Back on Ornament
Replace the cap back onto the ornament while the glue is still melted.
Push the bobby pin 1/4 to 1/2 inch into the ornament.
Hold the bobby pin upright until the glue is cooled.
Step 6: Hotglue Top of Cap
Adding hotglue to the top of the cap will help stabilize the bobby pin.
It's important to do this AFTER the hotglue inside the ornament cap has completely cooled.
Otherwise, the cap won't be adhered to the ornament and will be harder to stabilize the bobby pin.
Step 7: Pin Hair Ornaments Into Hair
I like being extra tacky.
I also bobby pinned a gift wrap bow into my hair to add even more gaudiness to my hair style.
