Springtime hair clips

These cute little hair clips are made of paper flower brads (I think they're for scrapbooking, something about which I have zero knowledge beyond what I learned from Dead Like Me), a little glue and metal sparkly barrettes.

I picked up the flowers on clearance at Target; you could use fabric flowers, knitted flowers or cut your own paper ones. Just remember paper ones should be sealed with glue so they last longer.

Separate the flower pieces and coat both sides with Mod Podge or some other clear-drying glue.

When the pieces are dry, put 'em back together

Spread glue on the brad and the clip, then attach the clip to the flower, pressing down hard to flatten the brad prongs as much as possible. This will make sure the flower is tightly attached to the clip. Fold the prongs down tightly, and add more glue.

Make sure you use tons of glue! You don't want the flower slipping around, although the brad will keep it from falling off.
