Here’s a very simple craft idea to make yourself or someone special some very pretty vintage inspired hair accessories. Any girl both big and small would look great in one of these black and white slides. You can never have enough hair accessories after all. So, here’s a way to personalise your own and add that little bit off vintage glam to your hair- drob.

What you will need…

A set of two plastic hair slides (Comb type)
Some small white faux peals
A white bow embellishment
Two pieces of different black decorative sequinned embellishments (type used for fabric)
4 tiny black flat glass gems
Mod Podge
Glue dots
Glue brush

These take minutes to make and have a real 1920s feel about them, making them perfect for any upcoming vintage festivals.

For your first slide, paint some mod podge along the top above the comb. Place the lace embellishment at an angle so that there is more of the right side covered than the left. Clue the tip of the embellishment to the left side of the comb leaving a small area beneath.

Now add 4 of the flat crystals in the space beneath leaving a small space in between.

Now with glue dots add two white faux pearls in that space.

Give the slide an entire coat of mod podge and then leave to dry.

Slide number 2.

Cover half of your slide in your remaining lace and sequin embellishment. Use glue dots for this step.

On the remaining side of your slide use a glue dot to stick down your white bow embellishment. Use half a glue dot to stick a flat black crystal in the centre of that bow.

Now use glue dots to apply a group of 3 faux pearls next to your bow.

Next step is to stick 3 faux pearls along your lace and sequin embellishment.

Lastly cover the entire slide in mod podge (excluding the brushes of course).
