Make your own glitter barrettes for Valentines Day!I don't know if you're a gal like me, but I have QUITE the collection of hair accessories. The right barrette or headband can be the perfect finishing touch to an outfit. I've been looking to add some more flair to my tresses (seriously, give me all the flair), so I grabbed some crafty supplies and went for it! 

-Sculpey oven bake clay
-Mod Podge or craft glue
-fine glitter
-barrette blanks
-letter cookie cutters
-small rolling pin

Step 1Step One: To begin, roll out your clay onto a covered surface (I covered mine with wax paper). Begin cutting out your designs and baking the clay as the package suggests.

Step 2Step 2aStep Two: Once your clay has been fully baked and cooled, cover the surface in Mod Podge or craft glue. Sprinkle on your glitter and let dry.

Step 3 Step 4Step Three: When the glue has dried under the glitter, attach your clay letters and shapes to the barrette blanks with E6000. Once those are dry— VOILA! Pretty new barrettes to make your hair super fancy.
