DIY PROJECT, Fashion DIY, Hair DIY, Holiday DIY, Jewelry DIY





If you are looking to just dip your toe in the halloween spirit pool, may I suggest some embellished cat and/or bear ears? They are an instant mood lifter, and are a simple way to ease into costume season.  Put your hair in the highest ponytail, à la Ariana Grande, and simply slide the combs towards the crown of your head for an instant animal makeover, bonus points if you pair with leopard print!

Hair Combs
Pliers and Wire Cutters
Loose Pearls

What You Do for Cat Ears:
Step 1: With the gems, create the motif you want to add to the cat ears.
Step 2: Lay the gems flat with the colorful side facing down in a straight line that is in the motif that you decided on.
Step 3: Cover the backs of the gems in E6000 and let dry.
Step 4: Next, cut a piece of wire and string it through the holes in the gems, then bend the wire to make a point in the center.
Step 5: Wrap the ends of the wire around the hair comb and cut off the excess wire.
What You Do for Bear Ears: 
Step 1: Cut an 8” piece of wire and wrap one end around the last tooth of the hair comb.
Step 2: Next, string pearls on the wire. The more pearls to add, the larger the bear ears you will create.
Step 3: Wrap the end of the wire around the last tooth of the hair comb, opposite from the side you started on.
Step 4: Use the wire cutters to cut the excess wire.
