Making your own handmade accessories? It’s a fun, easy thing to do for your wedding day! And if you want to know how to make hair accessories with beads, this is one very simple, quick way to do it. It’s also a very forgiving project, which works in everyone’s favor.

The third supply is where it really starts to get fun! You don’t have to make neutral, sparkly ones like I did. You can literally put whatever you would like on the DIY hair clips.

I almost can’t believe how easy it is to construct these homemade hair accessories. To make them, just follow the steps below.
- Plug in and heat up your hot glue gun.

Delia AteneaOK honestly I’m just completely in love with that leaf detail. It’s so romantic! Love that! And a glue gun is totally a girl’s best friend when wedding planning!
KileenThis is such a gorgeous DIY!! They turned out so pretty!!
Ashley RollinsThis is such a good idea. I’ve been looking at pieces for my wedding and I have to say, they are so super pricey! But these are such an adorable way to add a bit of bling to your hair.
Jerrieal LumarI haven’t tried any hair clips this summer but these are gorgeous! love the way your DIY project turned out!
StephanieI wish I’d known about this ahead of time! The clips are such a great idea – though they weren’t quite as popular last year during my wedding season. I was originally going to do flowers in my hair – but I had a braid crown instead, which I loved!
NaililThose clips are the perfect detail. I love how simple yet elegant they look.
