Let's Make Hair Clips!

Let's Make Hair Clips! www.abeautifulmess.comLately we've been noticing hair clips popping up everywhere. We're loving it! In fact, back in the olden days one our very first DIY posts was how to make a hair bow. We love that clips can be edgy, cutesy or add a pop of color- depending on your outfit and your mood! Here are four ideas for simple clips you can create at home.

Let's Make Hair Clips! www.abeautifulmess.com Cut out a strip of leather that is 1 inch by 4 inches long. Place the leather on the wrong side of your fabric and cut your fabric an inch bigger than the leather on each side (so there is enough fabric to wrap around the leather). Put a line of Tacky Glue around the edge of the fabric and fold the edges towards the middle of the leather, wrapping the leather with the fabric (kind of like a present). Once the glue on your wrapped leather has set, use more Tacky Glue to attach it to your barrette base.

Put a dot of Tacky Glue on your barrette base and place the stud on top. Continue this all the way down your barrette until the barrette is covered.

Put two lines of Tacky Glue down the length of the barrette base and place the two rows of the crystal trim on top.

Happy Monday. xoxo. Elsie
