I love to wear my hair up year-round, especially in the summer when it gets really hot in the OKC (Go Thunder)!
So I decided to make some cute spring/summer hair clips that were a little girly-er than I would normally wear. My daughter loves all things girly and my husband and I are blown away by it since I was such a tomboy. She wore a clip and thought she was the cats meow for a few minutes!
I also have been known on occasion to take my barrette out and put it on my shirt if I decide to wear my hair down momentarily, like for a picture or if it gets chilly. That is why I decided to use this type of clip to dress up, because it can slide onto my shirt easily for a cute accessory look.
I think they came from Sally's (a beauty store) near us. You can probably get them lots of places that sell hair clips but I think they are designed to hold hair back when you are getting a perm or straightener or color so the hair stays clear of the processed hair.
In this set I just took the clip and hot glued a Houndstooth fabric to it and then added green stripes and a pink heart and bow. They are made of felt and I think they came from Hobby Lobby. I love that place.
On this style, I glued the pretty ribbon and then wrapped it over the top clip. Thinking back I wish I had weaved it in and out for a cooler effect. I then added the hearts to it. Simple, except for the fact that I manage to get burns every single time I hot glue. I wonder if there is a separate DIY'er health insurance policy that I need to look into!
This one was just a thick metal clip with teeth that I added twine to and then a flower and cute little round sparkly things at the end.
Now I just need to get outside, pull my hair up with a clip and go run some errands! Or stay here and keep pinning on Pinterest. Have you ever made a hair clip or a clip for your shoes or purse? I think they can be interchanged pretty easily.
