I made these in about 10 minutes. I used Tulip brand glitter fabric paint(in Gold) for the glue to hold the beads on. I'm going to wear them to a formal dance and they match my dress very well. I was getting so frustrated trying to put the beads on the comb with fishing line, that's when I got the idea to just glue them on.

Suprisingly, yes. I was concerned about that too at first. Those puppies aren't going anywhere,lol.  It dries like hard plastic, just as hard as the comb itself. One recomendation: put a big glob of paint and smoosh the bead into it. Rather than a light dab of paint with the bead sitting on it. It makes a tighter bond that way.

hm...i'm thinking that if you managed to get some of the paint to squish up into the bead's hole...that that would secure them even more.

i'm still amazed that fabric paint's capable of holding beads on.  ooh, the possibilites are endlessly...especially since it comes in so many colours.  so even if part of the paint ends up showing through in the finished product it'll still look fancy.

I used the thick kind that comes in the tall bottle, Tulip brand. I dont think that the more acrylic-runny kind would work, I think that's Plaid brand that comes in the shorter bottles for like 47 cents. 
As a side note...I put the glue down and then put the beads on. After that I ran a couple thick lines of it above the beads to cover the extra brown on the comb that was still not covered. I think that may have helped to secure them a little more.
You're right about squishing it through the holes =)

Great idea!  I've only done the beaded hair combs where I string teeny tiny beads on teeny tiny wire and go out of my teeny tiny mind!  I love your way much better!
