The title is in relevance to the list I wrote outlining my objectives over summer. That makes it sound like a corporate event, but basically one of the things I want to do is learn a new word and use it each day. Those are my first three, and I did use each of them. Also on the list is wanting to do something productive each day, which I have also adhered to so far, and plan to keep doing so.
I've wanted baby barrettes for ages, but England isn't America and I refuse to pay £6 per barrette from Etsy that I will lose at school anyway so I'll have to wait until I have dispensable enough income to do that. Instead I thought I'd buy some buttons that I would glue gun to clips to sort of, improvise.
Above is like a ~montage~ of them, first all of the bling I attached, then the clips before, and the FINISHED PRODUCT. There wasn't really any external inspiration for them, and in the end the only baby/goody barrette looking on is the tri-flower one, the others look like a toddler got given access to some glue and mish mashed together different entities of plastic.
|I wore three of them and I had daisies in my plaits (still do) I didn't make those oops.|
Then I had a lot of left over glittery things and I bought some Primark sunglasses for £1 which were hella ugly in colour, so I planned to buy some glitter, mix it with PVA and paint the mixture on to them, but I forgot to buy the last two substances and had to improvise and use nail varnish. I'm utterly astonished I don't have acetone poisoning (I might I suppose) because I used two layers of Barry M candy pink as a base, then applied some glitter polish that came free in a magazine and is therefore unbranded but it was really really good, and the consistency of it meant the pink layer didn't have to be perfect. As a perfectionist, I like things to be perfect, so knowing they'd look perfect even if the pink wasn't was assuring.
|I didn't realise but there's daisies here too, subconsciously they keep appearing in my life I swear.|
|I saw this after making mine but they're snazzy and deserve to be here.|
Hopefully I've inspired you to do either of these DIY's that don't actually tell you how to do them but It's quite self explanatory, all you need is a glue gun. Have a good summer guys!
