I really like the idea of natural elements being incorporated into everyday outfits. I use natural elements in many of the crafts I do so I thought it was only fitting. Plus I have a thing for acorns and such  Cheesy I plan on making more with small birds, nests, and flowers. Since spring is coming, I can't wait to wear these little critters and bits of nature on my head.

The idea is simple, all it takes is some bobby pins and some good old E-6000. I use E-6000 because it sticks to not only the acorns and other seed pods but the metal of the bobby pin as well. Okay, on to pictures.

From left to right- Star anise, little birch pine cones, acorns, and a bobbin (not really natural but the shot was for mah blog  Wink )


The required action shot. I have looong hair versatile hair so it's fun to do wavy curly updo's and have some acorns just nesting in there  Cheesy


Thanks for looking! Comments/crits welcome!

Very cool!!  So you  just used regulare bobby pins and not the super expensive ones with the little metal tab attached to glue things onto?  Thanks for letting us know which glue you used as well!  Does the E6000 hold up well in action?

Yes I used the regular old bajillion for a dollar bobby pins for this. E6000 works incredibly well since it dries slightly flexible it can put up with the jostling around that a bobby pin endures. I use it for everything. It only costs about $3 or $4 a tube at Wal-Mart and it lasts a while. Just allow the E6000 to sit for about 5 minutes before you attach the bobby pin with it. This allows the glue to get slightly tacky and hold on to the bobby pin while drying. Hope this helps.  Smiley

Acorns... in... hair.  Why has this never been done before?  Genius, I say.
