Are you headed to the beach? Here, I’m going to show you some gorgeous DIY hair clips that you can make using the shells you find on your trip.

If you weren’t planning on going to the beach, this fun accessory will make you want to now.

For this DIY, you will need three things: alligator clips, super glue, and the beautiful sea shells that you’ve collected on the beach.

You can, of course, buy sea shells or fake shells in your local craft store, if going to the beach isn’t practical for you.

Tools and materials:

  • Alligator clips and contour clips
  • Superglue
  • Sea shells
Gluing clip

1. Glue clips

First, place glue all along the clips.


2. Add shells

Then add the shells to the glue.
