I was inspired by Mrs. Smith (love her stuff!!!) to give hair bows another try as a birthday present for Joshua's little friend.

I got these "accessories" from Target for a dollar each in the sticker aisle.

I layered the different flower shapes, then stuck a brad through the middle to hold them all together. This part was pretty fun.

I pulled out the 75 hair clips that I have left over from last summer's hair bow endeavor and covered a bunch with ribbon and hot glue. This part: not as fun.

Glued the flower thing onto the barrettes, then pulled out some card stock to make a barrette holder. Isn't that a great idea? Mrs. Smith, again. I probably would have just thrown them into the bottom of the gift bag or something.

I'm not convinced that I saved much time or money by making these instead of buying them, but it was fun to play around with.

Maybe you didn't save time but you certainly made cuter hair bows that I've ever seen in the store! It's a one of a kind personal, home-made gift, and that's the best kind.
