I am drawing inspiration from the sea for my latest mega simple and adorable craft. Specifically, Finding Dory is what triggered this DIY because as we prepare for the Blu-Ray/DVD to be available in stores everywhere, we started talking about sea animals and creatures. As the family of beach bums you know us for, we are always collecting shells and pretty things from the beach. On a Monday with school and everything else going, we think of the beach and ocean while we make the starfish, well, the star of our fun and easy Easy Starfish Hairpin DIY.
Easy Starfish Hairpin DIY
This hairpin will be a great accessory to add to every collection. I know both me and my princess are enjoying it very much. Perfect for many beach fun-filled days and themed parties. Disneybounding Moana? this would be a great accessory for that too! I think it will be perfect for a boat outing, or even to play the starlet at a New Year’s Eve party :-).
Here are the simple steps and few materials you need to make the Starfish hairpin DIY:
- 1 dried up starfish skeleton
- 1 bobby pin
- glue gun
- Clean the starfish with a rag
- Turn the starfish upside down and choose one of its legs to layer silicon with your glue gun
- Place the bobby pin over the silicon quickly and let it dry in place
Voila! You are done!
For a bit of flare, we wrapped some golden thread around each of the starfish’s legs. You can get as creative as you want with this. For the next batch, I am covering the starfish first with golden glitter all around!
