Five Minute Hair Pins and 11 Spring Inspired Projects from #MyFavoriteBloggers

Raise your hand if you are over winter? I don’t think my daughter has went to school a full week since Christmas (except maybe one?). Here in the south, we are just not cut out for rough winters, so when they come upon us we are shut down for a while. I got so excited when I went to a store this week and saw (gasp!) springy merchandise. It motivated me to try a little quick spring craft of my own. Got five minutes and a few craft supplies? Then you have time to make these Five Minute Hair Pins. And when you’re finished, check out the other amazing spring projects from a few of #myfavoritebloggers. Hey, if nothing else, we maybe we can craft up some spring.

  • Jewelry Glue or Krazy Glue- I used Krazy glue just because it’s what I had on hand.
  • Flower cabochons
  • Hair Pins with a flat surface

I order my hair pins and cabochons from Pick Your Plum whenever they are on sale.

Begin by dabbing a small about of the glue in the middle of the flat hair pin part. Don’t put too much so that it doesn’t ooze all out over the pin. Wearing chipped finger nail polish is totally optional.

Press the flower cabochon on the glue. Hold it for approximately 30-60 seconds until the glue holds.
