Stacey Solomon has shared a very simple way to make gorgeous gold hair clips.

The 31 year old mum is known for her handy hacks, and this time she took a couple of hours out of her day to create some gorgeous accessories.

Posting a photo of Gold Olive Leaf hairpins which she found online for a whopping £360, the mum-of-three decided to make her own, for a fraction of the price.

The Loose Women star, who recently opened up on her new crafting book, penned: "I raided the Fejka cupboard found these and cut off a few leaves,” followed by a laughing emoji.

Next, she takes regular black hair clips and, using glue, sticks two little leaves to the end of each.

Then, she lies them all out on a piece of cardboard outside and sprays them with gold spray.

Stacey explained: “Glued them to the top of some grips, and sprayed them gold.”

The end result sees Stacey creating some stunning gold hair clips which looks just like the £360 ones she shared on her story.

The X Factor finalist wrote: “They’re not solid gold but probably cost me about 5p so I’m ok with that,” followed by a laughing emoji.

And to create the stunning grips, Stacey only used four things; gold spray paint, hair grips, a glue gun and Fejka.

The beautiful star showed the clips off in her own hair, which boasts an amazing autumnal shade of red currently after she dyed it.

The former I’m A Celeb winner managed to snatch a few moments for herself recently, and indulged in a trip to the hair salon to get a very autumnal transformation.

The naturally brunette star, who has recently been proudly showing off her grey hairs on Instagram, opted to go for a change with a balayage vivid shade of red.

Taking to Instagram Stories to document the whole process, Stacey showed herself first in foils getting a few highlights put in. This might be because bright colours show up stronger on bleached strands.

“So close but so far!” she says once the first step of the process was complete.

She then points at her wet roots and asks fans: “Did anyone else lose loads of hair when they were pregnant? I lost loads from the top.”

After that, her colourist and stylist, Penelope Ryan, can be seen mixing up Stacey’s two shades of berry hair colour – one plum and one red shade. The star mentions she’s “nervous” as she sees the vivid shades being applied to her hair.

But clearly there was no need to be nervous at all as Stacey’s complexion perfectly suits bright hair. She showed off the results by doing a “tap to tidy” tories post, which directed followers to a gorgeous snap of her transformation.
