Quick and easy and under $1 to make! Items used:
  • Stone or jewel
  • 24 inches of rope
  • Barrette blank
  • Hot Glue Gun and glue.

Tie a knot in the center of the rope.

Make two more knots then place jewel in the center, then make three more knots on the other side.

If it looks how you want it to you are ready to glue it to the barrette, if not, you can undo the knots and redo it and/or make more or fewer knots.

Put hot glue around the circumference of the jewel.

Push it in on the underside of the knots and glue around the edges to secure.

Put a line of glue across the length of the knots and jewels and then place the barrette on top of the glue and allow it to dry.

Tie knots in the ends of each piece of the rope.
