Day 265: Flower Hair Clips

Posted by annagrace under Days 201-300

When I was at Hobby Lobby the other day, I discovered some plain metal clips to be used to make hair accessories! They happened to be on sale, so I got them along with three flowers that could be added to them!

This ¬†might not be a super creative project, but it did take some effort to stick the flowers to the pins! I couldn’t find my extra hot glue sticks, which is what I originally intended to use, so I used Gluefast Duo dots instead! We sold these things at Bags and Bows to use to hold stuff in gift baskets (at a lower stickiness level, though), but I bought them to adhere samples to project boards for studio! They worked great for studio, so I thought I’d give them a shot for these hair clips. And they worked! There was still some stickiness around the clip and in the little slot, so I used white tissue paper to cover those spots so they didn’t get stuck in my hair!

So! Here are the completed hair clips in my newly dyed hair! (It turned out super bright red at first so I was able to dull it some with a darker color, but the pics really don’t do the brightness justice… but I love it!)

I can’t decide which one is my favorite… I love them all! You better believe I’ll be wearing one to work tomorrow! And I’ve got a ton more clips, so I think I’ll be making some more!
