Flower Bobby Pins

Happy Thursday All! I hope your week is going well! This week my project is super quick and simple, which is a huge bonus because we are crazy busy!

So, I'm growing out my bangs. Since my hair is curly I used to have to straighten them every day or they looked weird. Well, that's way too high maintenance for me, so I'm growing them out to avoid  dealing with them. Here's the problem with that, they aren't long enough yet and they're in my face all the time, which it super annoying. I've been pinning them back, but I wanted to add a little something so that my go-to hair style [not sure it classifies as an actual style] is not so boring.

Enter, the fabric flower. Seriously, I feel like you can class up just about anything with a fabric flower.

So, here's what I gathered:

1. Glue gun
2. Fabric scraps
3. Scissors
4. Bobby pins with round bezels from Hobby Lobby (I think I got a pack of them for $2)

Follow this or any of the other gazillion fabric flower tutorials on the web to end up with this:

Then put a generous glob of hot glue on the back center of the flower and press into the bezel, and you get this:

See, told you it was quick and simple...and cheap! Two dollars and ten minutes later, I had two new hair accessories. My kind of project.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this short-and-sweet post.

Have a lovely week!

P.S. Linking up here.
