Make These Adorable Glitter + Pom-Pom Hair Clips
- flat barrettes
- Mod Podge Matte
- natural fine-bristle paintbrush (size 2)
- extra-fine glitter, in desired color
- 100 percent acrylic yarn, in desired color
- pre-cut 1/2-inch diameter felt circle (optional)
- industrial-strength adhesive
Paint on Glue
Use a fine-bristle paintbrush to apply an even coat of Mod Podge to the barrette.
Sprinkle on Glitter
While the Mod Podge is still wet, sprinkle on extra-fine glitter. Shake off the excess. Set aside to dry. Tip: Crease your paper plate or paper and pour the excess glitter back into the container.
Once dry, seal the glitter with one more coat of Mod Podge. Set aside to dry.
Cut a 6-inch piece of yarn. Set aside. Begin creating your pom-pom by tucking yarn under your pointer finger, then wrapping around 3 fingers. Wrap about 40 times to get a mini pom-pom.
Pull yarn off fingers and use the 6-inch piece of string to tie up the center and bundle together. Cut the loops on each end, then give it a "haircut." Continue to trim until it's round and even.
Glue Pom-Pom on Felt Circle (Optional)
Using a scrap piece of felt, create a 1/2-inch circle to serve as the base for your pom-pom. Glue the pom-pom on the felt circle using industrial adhesive glue. Note: This step is optional, but the felt will help keep your pom-pom in place on the hair clip.
Glue to Hair Clip
Using industrial adhesive glue, attach the pom-pom to the glittered hair clip.
Gift or Keep!
Once you make one pom-pom, you'll want to make dozens! You might as well keep the glitter out and make a batch of festive hair clips for all your gals (and yourself, too!). They're perfect for the holidays or a random Tuesday.
