Rhinestone headband or clips:
1. Purchase elastic trim or headbands from the supply section on etsy.

Bobby Pins:

2. You can also hot glue mini rhinestone appliques. Layer in a twist or updo for instant holiday hair!

Rhinestone Sash:
1. Using some wide ribbon, pinch together at the center and hot glue two folds.
