While the cropped haircuts on my two little ones look adorable, they are very limiting on how I can style them. To break up the short-hair-monotony, I've been constructing more flower clips (click here and here for earlier posts) that will keep the hair out of their eyes while looking stylish.
Some of the flowers I constructed from craft felt, others are fabric (just like my flower pins), and the plastic ones came from a scrapbooking store.
The center of each flower is a brad (available in every color and style imaginable in most scrapbooking stores; I get mine at Hobby Lobby in the paper crafts section when they go half off - very inexpensive).
The great thing about using brads is that you don't need glue (in my original hair clips, I used glue, and discovered that it wasn't necessary) - just wrap it around the hair barrette (any hair clip will do!). Then, later it easy to remove the flower and switch it with another or just leave it plain.
My girls love having these in their hair and I love that I can inexpensively make cute clips that match any outfit.
