While I was sitting around and making some fabric flowers for a tote bag, Addy decided she wanted to sit at the table and help. Well of course, I had to stop what I was doing to see what all she was getting into. I have my table full of supplies and she LOVES to dig in and see what she can find. While I had the burlap sitting out, she came across a piece of a flower and some of these little purple stick-on gems. She was having such a good time playing, I decided we just needed to make HER something fun to wear. Why not another little flower barrette? So here is my quick and simple ‘Addy-pleasing-burlap-fabric-flower-with-bling’!
- burlap (check out BurlapFabric.com)
- plastic cup
- sticky gems
- piece of a fabric flower
- alligator clip
When you are finished, grab your sticky gems and circles and start sticking away.
When I was done with the sticky gems, I basically stacked all of the circles and placed a dab of hot glue in the middle to hold them all together. After that, I added the flower on top, added a few more gems to the middle, and glued an alligator clip to the back.
And that is all! You know you can’t keep that 2 year old attention span for long, so this was a perfect 10 minute craft to keep her attention going. She loves her new little hair clip!
