Good morning!  Today I have a simple last minute Valentine’s Day tutorial for you.  It seriously took me a whopping five minutes to complete.  It is a tutorial for a simple heart hair clip.  You ready for this?  Here we go!

I found this bag of puffy heart stickers last week in the Target dollar bins.  Those things are evil, I’m telling ya!  Impulse buy capital of the world!  Anyway, I bought them with no particular project in mind.  A few days later a friend and I made our girls Valentine’s Day versions of Pom Pom Twirly Skirts.  (More on that later!)  Such a fun, flirty little skirt needed a perfect accessory, and for once I opted not to go for a huge headband.  The skirt is the big star of the outfit, so the hair accessory needed to be subtle but super fun.  Enter the puffy heart stickers.

For this tutorial I used a tiny snap clip (available at places like Sally Beauty Supply), a puffy heart sticker, a thin piece of ribbon, and a hot glue gun.

I wanted red ribbon for this project but didn’t have any on hand.  I decided to look for white, but I didn’t have any of that either.  Finally I found this ribbon with a very subtle print on one side, so I grabbed it and just had the white side facing outward.

Start by dabbing a dot of glue on the ribbon and attaching it to the bottom point of your clip as shown.

Add a bit of glue on top of the clip and fold over the ribbon.  (Be sure to line it up so it looks straight.)

Next place a dot of glue on the back of the clip.  Stretch the ribbon down to that end.  You are essentially covering up most of the clip.

Place a small amount of glue on the back of the clip and fold the ribbon under.

Cut off the ribbon once it is attached under the clip.

Now you are ready for the heart.  Yes, already!

Peel the sticker part of the heart off entirely.  Then use a dot of glue to attach the heart on top of the ribbon-covered clip.
