Homemade hair-clips

My friend Gracie and I were feeling crafty one day and decided to make our own hair pieces. It was very cheap & simple. We get compliments whenever we wear them. We got the supplies at Joanns.
- plain metal hair barrettes
- hot glue gun
-buttons
-lace ribbon
-feathers
-bow
-bird charm
 Most of these are self explanatory. Glue whatever you want to the clip. With the feathered ones, I added the largest feathers first to the back of a button, layering the smaller feathers on top. Then I glued the button to the clip. Voila, they were ready in about 20 minutes!

    I also make hair-clips, but I use felt and make rosebuds, flowers, bows and stuff like that. They turn out really cute.
