DIY Stocking Stuffer: Make Glitter + Pom-Pom Hair Clips for Your #GirlSquad

I dare you to make just one of these mini pom-poms.

I'm going to be honest with you all. I don't love glitter. After years of spraying (or rolling) on layers of body glitter in the 90s, I came into the 21st century with a glitter-free craft arsenal. But it's the holidays after all, so why not go a little crazy with the glitter flakes in the name of fashion?

Basic metal barrettes are just begging to be dressed up. That's where the glitter comes into play. Mod Podge and extra-fine glitter create the glitzy base of your hair clip. Then, use colorful yarn to form a mini pom-pom as an adorable embellishment.

I made one pom-pom, then two, then six. Like knitting, crocheting and coloring, it's a fun way to keep your hands occupied while creating something beautiful, or in this case, insanely cute.

Get creative with your creations, too. I got out my nail polish collection, painted on a variety of colors and glued on beads, jewels, antique pieces and other items to create a slew of different hair accessories for pet-loving, vintage-loving, food-loving and tech-loving friends. These dressed-up hair clips take only minutes to make and can be worn every. single. day by your #girlsquad.
