Wedding Hair Combs
Wedding hair combs can be used to accentuate any type of hair style. Long hair worn down or in an updo can be taken to a different level with the help of the right accessories.
You can save money by making the hair pieces for yourself and wedding party just following the simple tutorial provided here.
Hair Combs Materials
* 1x unadorned hair comb (wire or plastic work just fine)
* 24 or 26 gauge wire (how much you need will depend on your design)
* Wire cutters
1 * Cut a really long length of wire and wrap the end a few times around one end of your comb to secure it.
2 * Thread a bead onto the wire and wrap twice more around the comb.
3 * Repeat with more beads, gradually moving along the comb.
4 * If you want to be more adventurous you can position beads away from the comb. Thread a bead onto your wire and hold it in position the required distance from your comb.
Fold the wire back on itself after it emerges from the far side of the bead and line the 2 sections of wire up with one another.
5 * Hold the 2 sections of wire together where they reach the comb and then twist your bead until the whole length of the wire is twisted together.
Wrap the loose end of the wire once around the comb so it’s in position to add another bead. These twisted wire stalks can be bent and repositioned later.
6 * When you have attached enough beads and have reached the far side of the comb, just wrap your wire a few times around the comb again and clip off any excess.
If you run out of wire before you finish you can finish off and start a new piece in the same way.

Claire Smith has always enjoyed crafts of all kinds, taking after her parents who both have several creative outlets themselves. As a child she would try out anything even remotely creative, she did a lot of painting and sketching but also made candles, friendship bracelets and made and painted plaster-of-Paris models.
Whilst at university she took ceramics classes for a while, something she would love to come back to, and even during a brief period as science teacher she was always creating posters and teaching resources. She was born and lived in the UK until 2 years ago, when she moved to San Francisco with her husband.
Whilst planning her own wedding her creativity really came to the fore as she decided really early on to personalise and cut costs by making a lot of things herself, including the invitations, decorations, jewelry and bouquets.
She enjoyed making the jewelry so much, that now she has an online shop, Embergrass Jewelry selling her handcrafted copper jewelry.
