I have two problems lately with my princess… the first one, she wants every single day to wear different accessories in her hair….and the second one, she wants almost every week to give small gifts to her best girlfriends! I do not know about you, but for me this is a small pain in the head! So as you may understand, I have to discover new accessories and of course to create small gifts with the less cost! And these hair clips, are just the solution in my both “problems”.


– Plastic Alligator Hair Clips ( I got them from here)
– glitter dust in many colors
– no colored nail polish
– wash tape
– tiny flower paper patcher (or any schema you like)


How are we going to create them? Really easy! Imagine that half of them are decorated from my princess herself. We are going to create two different types of glitter clips and the first one is really easy.  Just add nail polish on the alligator clip and throw glitter dust on it.



Let is dry for a few minutes and then pass it again with the same nail polish to make the dust more stable. Let it dry well. Your clips are ready!



The second method is in case you wish to have small patterns in your clips, like my tiny flowers.  First cut a piece of your tape and use your paper pancher to make a couple of tiny flowers on it. Glow it on the hair clip.



Add the nail polish on the empty from tape spaces and then throw the glitter dust. Allow to dry for a while and remove the tape carefully. Add again nail polish to make it more stable and let it dry well.



Your alligator hair clips are ready! Full of colors, with glitter and so unique! Your princess are going to love them!


What do you think? isn’t it really easy? And you can create unique creations! For example my princess added two different colors of stardust in the same hair clip or we used tape to make the horizontal pattern of the orange clip of the photo. Fantasy and crafting!
Happy Crafting!!!!
