Tips and Ideas for this Project
You can do this on hair clips as well as bobby pins. This could also be fun to do with a headband! Think about how long you can get the words together.
For an average-sized bobby pin, you should limit the words to three letters, but this DIY can work with larger clips/pins as well. You will then be able to add more characters.
Skip the painting step by using colored glue sticks.
Carefully insert the DIY hair pins into your hair (be careful, the glue can potentially pull your hair!) and enjoy your unique look!

The mold is silicone, so you don’t need to do anything to prepare it.
If excess glue spills outside the letter portion of the mold, no problem – you can cut it off.
