DIY Hat Clip and Headband Clip

I love wearing hats and headbands. To dress them up a little, I make a DIY hat clip or headband clip, especially for special occasions or holidays.  It’s a really simple way to add a little personalized touch to your hat or fabric headband.

My first Halloween post of the year…woo hoo! Anyway, I’m a sucker for a good deal and every time I see these adorable glittered headbands in the dollar bins at Jo-Ann’s I snag one…or two… or three! In the past I have made a party top hat for my daughter’s fourth birthday and I have […]

I love the creepy and crawliness of Halloween.  For some reason I’m drawn to all things gross and scary. I’ve always been like that.  I can recall wanting to show a scary movie at every single birthday slumber party I’ve ever had. Since this is my daughter’s real first Halloween (she was only 3 months […]

OK, I am admitting to the World Wide Web that I cheated. I committed DIY blasphemy… The pink butterfly wings pictured here, I didn’t make, I bought (sigh)… BUT they were free technically!!! That’s my excuse and I stand by it! Because of my mini extreme couponing and thriftiness, I got these wings absolutely free, […]
