Hi, this is Kat with for under $15 now the greatest thing about this is that it only takes three ingredients we have our headband frame we have our cup chain and some e6000 glue and the only special tool that you're going to need is a very fancy toothpick so let's go ahead and get started so you can see what we're going to be making here it's just a beautiful bridal headband and it'll just add a nice little sparkle and just it's nice and thin as well so it'll be a really nice touch to any a bridal updo so we take our headband here and I have one foot of the Swarovski crystal cup chain and just to kind of get a nice little placement we're going to lay it down and place it around now you'll notice I'm not going all the way to the tip here and this is because you don't really want these to rub up against the back of your ear however if you do want it to go all the way around and wear it more tiara style you can do that but you'll need to purchase a little bit extra of your cup chain and then cut it to fit but let's go ahead and kind of get it centered on there so we can eyeball where we're going to start now as well alright so we have a nice even cup chain all the way around so now you might want to use a post-it note or a little piece of paper to put your e6000 on go ahead and open that up and if you have a freshie 6-thousand just go ahead and puncture that and we're going to squeeze some e6000 and you're going to want a good sized dollop on your pad there alright now I'm going to carefully pick this up and kind of put my nail right where I remember that Cup chain is so I can set that down take your toothpick and now just add some glue make sure not to flip it too far over the side and you can work in sections so you'll just keep going up and up there we go that's a good-sized section so now I'm just going to take my cup chain and start to lay it down and this is where you just want to kind of smooth it out so those cups sit nice and taut and flat and then you just kind of hold it and repeat now this is so quick and easy to do this is not just for Bridal you can also do this for proms or any special occasion where you want to kind of jazz up a hairstyle or an updo and we do have other styles of cutting as well that will work very easily in this similar fashion alright and just kind of press it down gently make sure that it is nice and flush with the sides there and we're just going to keep moving around now when we are all finished I definitely recommend letting this dry for at least 24 hours before trying to wear it you definitely don't want some of the glue in your hair and also you'll be able to see after 24 hours if there were some cups that just didn't get enough glue and didn't get pressed down enough so you can actually go in and sort of fix that as you are nearing the end in case you start to notice that some seem a little bit looser than others but if you're doing it correctly you shouldn't have too much of a problem with that and you can just see that I'm just taking that toothpick right along the top there and just kind of dabbing that glue and I'm not using very much at all mmm I can see that I'm going to have a loose one there I didn't put enough glue right there we go alright as you get towards the end you don't want it over glue so I have just a little bit more to go I think gosh do it one more yeah you don't want to over glue as you get towards the end there so just a mess and like I said you can kind of see that my cups are sliding around a little bit so just go back through and just kind of Center them on your headband you'll get a little bit of working time with this so you can kind of smoosh them around a little bit and make sure that they are all going to sit nice and flush on that headband go I'm just kind of adjusting and you can see even over here I won't even working for a couple of minutes but this is starting to set but it's still moveable so you have a little bit of time alright and there we have it all done so like I said be sure to let this dry for at least 24 hours and we do have some more videos showing you some different versions of some bridle head wear if you are interested we have some lovely little hair pins here so be sure to check out those videos at you
