Get the kids looking spiffy with these fun and easy red, white, and blue DIY barrettes for 4th of July. You can also wear these as pins or add them to a headband for a different look. This DIY barrette project is one of almost 100 ideas that are featured on a blog hop today, organized by Abbey DeHart of The Cards We Drew. You can see the whole hop list in a collage at the bottom of this blog post. But before that, check out my post on how to make easy felt 4th of July Barrettes with your Sizzix Big Shot!
Here's how to make these easy 4th of July barrettes for kids:
These barrettes are about 2.5″ inches wide. You can leave off the largest flower from the set of 3 that is cut by the die in order to make a smaller hair clip. This is what the full size flower barrette looks like in the hair:
You can also clip these onto straws or napkins to dress up the table for a barbecue. Since they are red, white, and blue, you can use them over and over again for other patriotic holidays like Labor Day, Memorial Day, and Veteran's Day. I feel like these look a little like the patriotic bunting we see around patriotic holidays.
The felt I chose is washable and made from recycled plastic bottles, making it eco-friendly and kid-friendly. I mean, who doesn't love a washable kids item, right?!
Aren't those fun? Here are the supplies you'll need to make them:
