Today, instead of my latest refashioned (will post it soon, don't worry) I am introducing you to MaryBeth from 
She's got amazing ideas on her blog, blogging tips, fashion style, etc. So be sure to visit her and leave some nice words. 
This is the first time I am having a guest posting at House of Estrela, but there are more to come pretty soon. I hope you'll all enjoy it! 
Love, Magda E. 

Hello!

My name is MaryBeth, and I blog at SecondHand Couture. I am so happy to have the chance to guest post for Magda. She is a creative and talented blogger, and I love getting ideas and inspiration from her. 

I recently have wanted to make some embellished bobby pins. I originally wanted to put pearls on the end, but I didn't have the right supplies. Not to be discouraged, I raided my button stash and came up with these. 

Here are the original, ordinary, non-stellar bobby pins. 
Using hot glue, a needle, and thread, I got to work! I hot glued each bobby pin to the button with a small amount of hot glue, just to keep it stable. Afterward, I doubled up my thread through a needle and  wound it around the pin through the button. When I had sewn enough that it wasn't moving much, I tied off the thread and hot glued the button some more. These buttons aren't going anywhere!



Work in progress...

So many options!
 I found that the buttons with one hole on the bottom of the button worked best for this project. I tried some of the standard buttons, but failed at it. Haha.




I ended up making six button-bobbypins, and I'm excited to wear them! I think they will look great with my hair down, but they will also add a fun touch when my hair is in a bun.
