Introduction: Hair Sparkles
If you Google “crystal hair coils” you’ll find items that look something like this. These are made from paper clips and hot set fabric crystals. You can find the crystals at any craft store.
To make them begin by extending a paper clip. Make a small tight bend at one end. Roll the wire continuously around the bend to create a coil. Make sure you wrap the wire so the existing paperclip bends are hyper extended.
Use cone nose pliers to separate the coils. Keep separating until you have a platform just big enough to set the crystal. Trim the coil down to size and file off any sharp edges.
Place the crystal on top of the coil and use a heat gun to activate the adhesive.
