PLA DIY: Patterned Hair Clips


I am torn about whether this post should be a Pinned/Tried/Loved It, or just a DIY, because it was completely inspired by this pin I saw on Pinterest. I was fully prepared to buy those darling hair clips, until I clicked on through to the store selling them and saw that they were 2 for $20. I mean, they are adorbs, but $10 each? I don't have that kind of cash to spend on hair accessories. So naturally, as it goes with most of these DIY projects, I decided to make some of my own. Here's how it went down.


What you need:
Mod Podge // already had (but costs about $5 with coupon at Hobby Lobby)
Sponge brush // already had (But costs about $1 for a pack of brushes)
Hair clips // $2 or less
Pieces of patterned paper (free if you print them yourself)
----------
Total: $2 (give or take, but the point is... it didn't cost much)


What you do:
You can probably guess what the steps are here, but I will still tell you. But before I do, you should know it takes about 1 minute to make each barrette, so make sure you have that kind of time. Oh wait... who doesn't have one spare minute to make a seriously cute hair clip?! And these clips are a total dream for keeping bangs out of your face during the hot summer. Need I say more?

Steps:
1. Measure you patterned paper to the size of your clip
2. Put some Mod Podge on the top of the clip
3. Put the paper on, let dry
4. Put Mod Podge over the paper, let dry
5. Put the clip in your hair and look cute



So fun! Make these, and don't forget to share if you do!
