Day 5 of 5 Days in December

Written by Kristy on . Posted in Blog

Hi everyone,

Today is the last day of the 5 Days in December but there will continue to be Christmas posts and gift ideas on the blog and facebook page.  I bought a hair clip that was plain from the supermarket to create a custom hair clip using some Prima flowers, some Websters Pages trim and some gems.  The clip was gold and I didn't want it to show up underneath the trim so I applied some Evergreen Bough Distress Paint and left it to dry.  


Did you know that you can use the distress paint on metal?  It took about an hour or so to dry and then I was able to assemble my clip.  I used glossy accents to adhere everything together as it is a really strong adhesive.

Perhaps you could make some hair clips to go along with a voucher for a teenage girl or a headband for a little girl.  Finnabair (who designs for Prima has made headbands and I am sure that there would be lots of other inspiration out there too.)

Thanks for stopping by,
