Easy and Inexpensive Hair Clips

Ok, it simply doesn't get any easier than this.  Wal-Mart is now carrying all sorts of hair clip possibilities:  bows, feathers, etc.  I saw this one the other day, and my 8-year-old begged me to make a hair clip out of it.  She pointed out that it would be perfect for the Halloween season.  What can I say?  I'm a sucker for her begging, I'm a sucker for cute hair clips, and I'm a sucker for Halloween.  So it came home with us.

This one's big enough that I didn't even have to line the clip with a ribbon.  A bit of hot glue (or you can use two-sided tape), and you're good to go!

I know that WAHM's who make clippies hate the big stores getting into the clippie game.  I completely understand.  And if you have a specific outfit with certain colors that you want matched, or if you have a particular idea of what you want in mind, or you want something 100% unique to your daughter, a WAHM is definitely the way to go.

But for those of us who like making our own and don't make them for profit, I love being able to pick up cute things like this that are virtually ready-to-go.  I've even picked up a couple of corkers at Target, already on lined clips and ready to wear!

Headbands, too!  I bought this Halloween headband last year--I think it was at Wal-Mart.

Yes, I could have made all of these things myself, but for a couple of dollars, it was more worthwhile to buy them ready-to-go, or with minimal time needed.  

So if you like having really cute hair accessories on your girls--but don't want to spend a lot of time or money--and you don't mind that there may be a few thousand other girls out there with the same exact thing, start looking around the craft section of your local store.  You may be surprised by what you find there!
