  1. To finish your elegant pearl hair clip, use the hot glue gun to add pearls one at a time. Add the glue in small amounts and then use some tweezers to add the pearls as desired. (tweezers help to keep your from burning your hands) You may substitute thick tacky glue instead of the glue gun but it will need a bit longer to dry.
