Day 17: Pearl Combs - a diy hair accessory
Cut your desired trim to match the comb length.
Wrap the floss three times in between the comb teeth and between the beads on the trim such that you catch the tail of your floss underneath the wraps.
Catch that tail as you wrap in between the next few comb teeth, as well. This photo doesn’t quite show it, but as I move to the next tooth and bead I will catch that tail underneath my wraps as I go.
Continue to wrap three times in between each comb tooth, going between each bead on the piece of trim. Cross over to the next tooth in the back of the comb so the front wraps are all straight. Do your wraps consistently (e.g. pick a way you’re going to do it and stick with it).
When you get to the end of the comb, turn it around and come back wrapping two times in between each comb tooth and bead.
When you get back to the beginning, finish off the end by pulling it underneath a few of the wraps. You can use a needle for this if desired. Or, you can glue it if you want it super-secure.
Still lots of jewelry goodness to come. I actually designed a couple of new pieces (wild roar of the crowd!), because I wanted to make sure there were still some new and interesting pieces coming up. Yes, I have found this posting a tutorial every day and thinking about girls’ jewelry all the time has made me slightly certifiable – but in a good way!
We’re now on vacation in Utah, so its pretty much gonna be what its gonna be. I took all the photos before I left so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I got everything well. See ya tomorrow.
