HAIR ACCESSORIES - Faux Vintage Broach Hair Jewelry on Hair Clips, Headbands, and Hair Pins

Updated on November 5, 2010

Vintage Broaches and Pins

Anything vintage is hot right now in fashion.  Magazines, stores, and websites are promoting faux vintage pins, hair clips, and hair jewelry.  So, I decided to try to create my own beaded hair accessories with that same vintage broach look.  

The above photo shows my 3rd (and favorite so far) faux broach pin.  I started with 3 layers of felt, each one smaller than the first.  I didn't have any kind of pattern to go from--just my own creative imagination.  The first beads I added were some of the purple tinted ones in the center, then the white pearls.  The 6 brownish pearls actually came from an old necklace I took apart.

I'm not sure which beads I threaded next.  But, hours later (while watching the voting counts on TV the other night) I finally completed adding the copper beads around the outside and in the center to complete my broach.

Broach + Feathers = Headband

Last night I added some feathers to the back and placed it on a silver metal headband and my hair accessory is complete!

Also hot right now in fashion accessories is pearls--any color, any size. You'll notice in this faux broach that I've used the same pearls I did in the previous one and also added a larger pink pearl in the very center. This broach was actually the first one I completed. None of the beads were glued on; they were sewn one one-at-a-time with a needle and thread.

Beaded Flower Hair Clip

With this faux broach, I added black and gray feathers, and a hair clip to the back.

Black and White Poinsettia Broach Hair Clip

Looking forward to Christmas and the holidays coming up, I made this broach to mimic a poinsettia flower.  I added 2 small pieces of white chiffon material (that I burned the edges of to prevent fraying), added black feathers, just a few red-dyed peacock feather strands, and a small hair clip on the back.  

Make Your Own!

I hope I've given you some inspiration to try your hand at making your own to wear yourself, or to sell in craft venues or specialty shops in your area.

These, I have made to use as hair accessories but I could have easily made them as actual pins to wear on a jacket, shirt, or even a cloth purse or bag.
