Here's the 4th Clip in this series: "5 minute Circles" I first made this clip one sunday morning when we were about to head out the door to church. I happened to notice Sophie, my girl least favorable to hair accessories, with her hair all in her eyes. I knew she would tolerate these plain metal clips but it needed just a little something to dress it up. I quickly plugged my hot glue gun in, cut out a few circles of felt that matched her dress, glued them on in a hurry and ran out the door. Later i decided a little paint might make it even cuter without adding a bunch of extra time.
Materials Needed: Clips, Spray Paint, Felt, Hot glue
1. Spray paint the clip
2. Plug in hot glue gun to heat up
3. Cut out circles of felt
4. Create some color combinations
5. Glue circles together, then glue metal clip onto the circles.
i used a gloss yellow and satin dove white "fusion" spray paint. The satin "fusion" coated the best in one coat. The yellow gloss was more runny and took a couple coats to cover. If you want this done in 5 minutes, i suggest a satin finish and the "fusion" kind worked the best!)
Mix and match the circles to make some cute combinations
Glue the layers and the metal clip
here's what my Sophie looks most days without a hair clippy
And here's her clip in action; keeping her hair out of her cute little face.
