Here’s another fun summertime project! Buttons can be such a great embellishment, especially if you have a collection of single buttons with no home. For this project, you can give simple hair clips get an extra pop of pizzazz using stylish coordinating buttons. These little Button Hair Clips are so easy to create for your little girl. She can get in on the fun by mixing and matching button shapes and colors with different hair clips.
To make these Button Hair Clips, you will need the following materials:
Hair Clips (solid colors or fun prints)
Glue Gun or Permanent Glue
An Assortment of Buttons
To make these clips, I used the following buttons:
La Petite Red & Black 182502119
Small Black Houndstooth 470002204
Pink Faceted 400042009A
Favorite Findings Black Dots and Stripes 550001471
Favorite Findings Fun Mini Stars 550001396
Traditional Hearts Blister 470001302
Once you have gathered all your supplies, determine which buttons you are going to pair with each hair clip. Get creative! You can use buttons and clips in the same color family for a monochromatic look or pair coordinating colors. Try layering different sizes and shapes of buttons to create different looks.
Place glue on hair clip and glue button to end. Allow the glue to dry completely before using in hair.
You can create little sets of these Button Hair Clips to give as gifts or make them to match a birthday party theme and give them as favors! This is also an easy way to create accessories for every holiday. Just layer different colors: orange and black for Halloween, red and green for Christmas, and pink and red for Valentine’s Day!
