Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I just can't pass up on an idea this good. Wearable crafts are the best because they are useful and they save you some coin. I could use different types of beads in this project if I don't find the beads or even make some out of polymer clay. Little girls would love these hair accessories so make some for them.

These are just way too cute. My grand daughter has long hair, these will certainly be used. I have over 1,000 buttons in a big metal can so you know what I will be using. She will have a hair pin for every day of the year.thank you for sharing this great idea.

Where can I purchase the brads? I have a granddaughter that would love these.

Yes big girls can also use these pins. I too use cute pins and I am 25 years old.
