Christmas Tree Hairclips

 Be Different Act Normal is currently one of my favorite craft blogs (my favorites change all the time - how bout you?) and a week or so ago they featured some Christmas Tree Hairclips from Agape Love Designs - I bookmarked it right away. It looked so cute and simple - and it was!  I used the tutorial but of course had to do a few things differently.
First off, at Michaels I couldn't find yellow stars - only plain little wood ones.  No problem.  In fact it was kind of funner this way - my 4 year old got to help paint them, which she loved!  Then we glittered them.  I also sprayed them with clear spraypaint to hold the glitter on (not sure if that's necessary, but I had some sitting around).

Then I made all the loops.  Since I was making several clips, it was assembly-line style.  I love the bright green ribbon.  Also, I found some brown ribbon that was sparkly on clearance - score!  Love that extra bling.
After I had everything hot glued together (yes, that's a mini hot glue gun - pathetic, but it works great and it's all I've ever needed!) I had the girls add some sticker jewel things (from the scrapbook clearance section) so they'd be like the lights on the tree.  Plus this is another way to have a step that they can do.  And that was it - a quick, easy, non-stressful craft (you know, some crafts are so involved that they become stressful - this was not that way!)

Cute, right??
You can do this - go make some!
