New hair accessories!

Hello there and happy Monday morning to you all!  Do you like Mondays or are you not a fan?  I enjoy my weekends so much that I would love to have Monday be an extension of the weekend, but I like to look at Monday as a fresh start for the week.  Monday is a choice.  A choice to start your week out on a good foot!

Today's project started a couple of weeks ago when the girls an I were at Michaels.  You know how they have those pre-made Recollections flowers?  Well, I let each of the girls pick out a two pack and I turned them into hair clips.

Excuse the window screens in the background :)

I picked up some hair clips at Sally Beauty Supply (a package of 80 cost $5.49) and covered them in white 1/4" grosgrain ribbon using hot glue.  Then I peeled the protective covering off the sticky back on the flower and hot glued the flower to the hair clip.  The sticky back seemed like it was secured really well to the flower so I didn't worry about taking it off.  We'll see how well they hold up.  My girls are pretty rough on their hair accessories!  The best thing about these was how fast they came together!  All four only took me a total of about five minutes!

I hope you had a great weekend!  We ran around all day Saturday, running errands.  Sunday we spent at home, cleaning closets and doing laundry.  I'm looking forward to a nice normal week this week after such a crazy one last week!  Have a fabulous Monday and I'll see you back here tomorrow!  Thanks for coming by today.
