We were getting ready for church this morning and I put Kayla in a cute red, white and blue sundress. I wanted to put a flower on her headband to match but I did not have any. So I went to my flower stash to go make one. I was kind of bummed to use the blooms for this since she does not have any other red, white and blue outfits. Then a thought came to me…well I will just take it apart when I get home. But then there is the hot glue to peel off hmmmmmmmmm…..

I have seen others use cute brads to hold them in place…I WONDER IF I CAN ATTACH THE BRAD TO THE ALLIGATOR CLIP!?!?!

So I attached all the blooms together on the brad and then slid the brad through the alligator clip and bent in place…

Now she looks stinkin’ adorable with a bitty bloom on her head. The best part is when I came home I took it apart and threw the blooms back in my stash. I can now coordinate her flowers with every outfit and just unbend the brad when she’s done wearing them. So I took all the flowers I had hot glued in place prior to this novel idea and ripped them all apart so I can reuse them over and over with different color combos. That idea just made my day.

  5. Another winner of an idea… you just can’t stop. LOL

    She is so adorable!


  6. Love it! I think I would invest in more clips and more flowers because that sweet flower deserves to be worn again – I’m thinking I would have to buy the girl some more red and white that she can pair with blue jeans and skirts just so she could wear that flower over and over – pin it on a sweater or a jacket, a hat – it is super cute – I seriously think you might have to open a hair barrette, flower doo-dad etsy shop! Inspiring, again…

  7. Question: Couldn’t you just eliminate the aligator clip and just poke the brad through the elastic headband or would that put a hole in the headband?

  8. thanks so much for inspiring me to be creative! Love your ideas!!!

  11. Kayla is getting so big and really filling out. What a beauty! I can’t believe that you want to make up a hairbow to match each outfit. I don’t think I have the extra 2 minutes a day for that, but I do love the brad attatched to the clip. No more hot glue blisters!

  12. No, Becky, now YOU are my new best friend!!! You didn’t mention you are a crafter!!!! I LOVE THIS! You have some awesome ideas… and I definitely need some help in that area! Especially the cabinets… we are wanting to refinish ours… and I was thinking an antiqued cream… whenever I get a moment to work on those… I’m SO calling you! Let’s get together, yeah yeah yeah πŸ™‚

  13. and oops! I mean… Beckie πŸ™‚ Sorry, I hate when people spell my name wrong, or worse, call me Ann! Soooo not my name πŸ™‚

  14. I’m sitting at work making hair bows and attatching them to the clip with the brad. Love it! I still want to have most of my clips premade, but I do like how fast your method is, and that I can re-assemble if I need to at some point. πŸ™‚

  15. When I was little my parents used elmers glue to glue flowers to my head- little crochet type ones my mother had stashed away. The glue's amazingly washable, so everything was a-ok!

  16. Just thinking you could also embellish THE BRAD ITSELF ! you know, glue a smarkly little rhinestone or something ontop of the brad. You could make it a clear rhinestone, they have a pack of 50 rhinestones all different colors in the dollar section of micheals. Thanks for the idea though, I will deff. do it!
