Throwing Star Barrettes

Project Level-Easy
Project List
Chainette Tassels
Throwing Stars-Rubber ones with hole in the middle
Glue(I used Aleene's Jewel it)
Wooden beads
Dice Beads
Plastic Beads
Metal Beads
String(I used some hard paper kind used in crafts-sorry forgot the name)
Metal French Barrettes
 I figured I make these into something for my hair. I first glued the metal barrette backings allowing a little of the hole in the star to remain open. I let the glue to sit for 24 hrs before proceeding. I then double strung my string and tied off the chainette tassel on the bottom. I added different beads-wooden,metal,plastic,etc. After I had strung up all my beads, I threaded threw the hole,in the star, the beaded string and tied it off in knots on the back of the star. That was it. I plan on making more -hmmm maybe a whole costume theme. I already have my throwing star belt.
