I’m a Pinterest Addict – Hair Comb DIY

And proud of it. Who’s with me?!

But rather than just wandering through pinterest and feeling creative, I need to actually attempt some of the awesome things that others have made and pinned. Cue BLOG – because that was one of my reasons for starting it!

A few weeks ago, I saw this floating around and just had to pin it:

Embroidery Floss Decorated Hair Comb Tutorial

Embroidery Floss Decorated Hair Comb

I absolutely LOVE these things. My hair is a little crazy at the moment because I haven’t had it cut since July and one of these babies just spices things up and makes me happy about my hair again! Brilliant.

Katie from Lemon Jitters has provided a great tutorial but once you get started it’s kind of addictive and you can’t help but play around and come up with new patterns! Here’s a pic of my attempts:

Embroidery Thread Decorated Hair Combs

My attempt at decorating hair combs with embroidery thread.

I’m pretty happy with them. The hair combs came in a pack of 6 so I’ll definitely be whipping up a few more of these. Or maybe I should have a play and see what other pretty things I can do to them? Hmm.

Starting out is hard. If you have the time could you please give me a quick hello so that I know I’m actually writing for someone? And please introduce yourselves and point me in the direction of your blog if you have one. I’d love to have a read.

    I love your idea. I have some lovely combs that just need decorating…. I think they might be seeing some embroidery thread coming their way soon! Yours are beautiful, thanks so much for posting.

    P.S. My blog is JUST started so there isn’t much there yet. But all viewers are great viewers! Thanks!

    OMG!! I Stumbled across your post about a month ago but I hit the next button before I could like it, it wasn’t in my history and I have not been able to find it since!! But after some dedicated googling I have found you at last! I love these hair combs and have been itching to have another look at how you decorate them so I can try it out on mine! :)

      Hi Lecinda. Thanks for the lovely comment, but I think you most likely stumbled across the post by Katie from Lemon Jitters as she was the original maker of the hair combs. You can find links to her site and tutorial above. I also only started my blog 12 days ago hehe. Thanks for stopping by!
