Tutorial: Easy Sticker Pins and Hair Clip

Oh, I just had to slide one more super fast and easy project for St. Patty’s Day.  Green is not a very common color in my wardrobe, so I like to have something really easy on hand to wear to avoid being pinched and still be festive in a very low commitment kinda way.

So when I saw these cute foam stickers in the $1 bin at Joann’s (love/hate those dollar bins right by the register that you’re forced to rummage through when you’re waiting in line!), I decided to just glue them onto some pin backs and be done with it!  Then I happened to see this post on A Couple of Craft Addicts and decided I should make a hair clip for Yuki too!  This is definitely a nap time craft.  It’ll take you 5 minutes or less!

For the pins, I wanted a stiffer straight back, so I put the stickers on a sheet of cardstock.  I used two stickers for each pin and pressed them on really hard to make sure they wouldn’t fall off.

For the hair clip, I thought it might be better if it was a bit more flexible, so I stuck it on a piece of scrap fabric.

Carefully cut the paper/fabric around the stickers.

Then just heat up the glue gun and apply a generous amount of glue to the pin back and/or hair clip and attach the sticker.

Let it cool and you’re done!  Now we’re ready to rock some green for St. Patrick’s Day!

(I’m quite certain this will look much cuter in my daughter’s hair, but she was taking a nap)

There’s my green for tomorrow.  Hope I don’t get pinched! 🙂
