Butterfly Barrettes – A Simple Clip for Her Hair

Simple Butterfly Barrettes - (1 of 1)
If you’ve got a kidlet like mine, you’ll know the futility of putting barrettes into your child’s hair each morning. 

“These aren’t going to be in her hair when I pick her up….”

And chances are, they’re not. They’ve fallen out, or are dangling awkwardly from a tuft of hair. It’s amazing how children can be completely unaware of an object dangling inches from their face… that would drive me NUTS!

When I discovered that these alligator clips – with their little metal teeth – will grip onto super-slippery hair and hold it, I was thrilled. So thrilled that I gussied them up and wrote up a tutorial on “prettifying” these handy little barrettes.

Head to Crafts Unleashed to see how I quickly – and inexpensively – jazzed up these alligator clips, and no longer sigh when I’m fixing hair in the morning.

I know I’m not the only one with a kid who has barrette-issues!

    I so hear you Madeleine goes through so many clips I buy them in bulk. Very pretty!

    Beautiful! Bella and I made hair clips over the weekend as well. I crocheted hearts, flowers and shamrocks then we pulled out the glue gun and glued them to hair clips. It’s so much fun having girly girls. 🙂

    Best Wishes,

      I love your crocheted embellishment idea! I’m definitely going to try that!
