DIY Hair Emergency Kit From Gum Packet

If you like to chew gum, this is definitely a tutorial for you. This DIY Hair Emergency kit is made from a gum packet and your creativity. It's a recycling project that is handy for everyday life, and you can easily make it with stuff that you have at home. All you'll need to do in prep is save an empty gum packet. 

When you finish this project, fill the packet with some bobby pins, small elastics, hair ties, and etc. Plop it into your purse and get going. When you find yourself in a situation where you need a hair tie or a couple of bobby pins, you'll be happy you made this hair kit. 

What you'll need: 
  • an empty gum packet (any and every size would work)
  • acrylic paint
  • sharpie
  • pencil
  • paintbrush
  • toothpick, dotting tool, or hair pin
Paint the entire gum packet with a thin coat of your choice of paint. I used a sky blue paint for the front and a light pink for the back. Wait for it to dry, and then paint on a second coat. If you need another coat after the second one, just make sure the second coat is dry before painting again. 

After this point, you can personalized the kit however you like. I'm going to be showing you how I did mine. 

Once the paint is completely dry, sketch the words or picture you would like on the front of the packet with a pencil. My packet says: In Case Of Hair EMERGENCY. When you are satisfied with the words or sketch, copy over it with your sharpie. I used plain black. 

Next, dot your toothpick, dotter, or hair pin in some paint and create small hearts all over the front of the packet. You can easily create hearts by dotting two small dots, and the dragging them down towards each other. 

That's all! Place in your backpack, purse, of wallet for future hair emergencies. If you chew a lot of gum, you could make a ton of these and put them in all of your purses so that you never have a hair emergency again!
