I actually made this barrette a few years ago and it has just occurred to me to make a post about it.  So here it is!

There are small holes drilled through both sides of all of the keys and then I used fishing line to tie the keys to the barrette.




And the action shot - in my hair

i love everything about this!  besides the very succinct, catchy slogan (with a great message) it's the best use for old keyboard keys i think i've ever seen!

Thanks

I got a message asking me how to make it so here is a little description of what I did to make it.


well first you'll need a keyboard to take apart.

I had my dad use a drill press to drill small holes through the sides of the keys.  Then I just strung them all with fishing line and tied them all onto a barrette.  Once the edges are one then you have to wrap fishing line in between all of the keys and around the barrette tightly to keep everything securely onto the barrette.  Then tie the other end off and WALA!
