Whether you’re seven or seventy-five, I think we can all agree that accessories make an outfit. I think we can also all agree that jazzing up your wardrobe with fun pieces can get expensive, and as the economy stands, that’s not going to work. Luckily, you can make homemade accessories that are just as stylish as those name-brand statement pieces and cost 1/100th of the price. Dress up your little girl and yourself for a day at the park, dinner with friends, or an evening function with some thrifty accents that will pull your whole look together.
The best part about these funky and fresh hair clips, bows, and accessories is that your little, crafty sidekick can make them. So the next time your five-year-old tells you that she just needs bangles, send her right on over to the Brand New Bangle tutorial, and watch her whip some up herself. AllFreeKidsCrafts has hundreds of thrifty projects that kids can make themselves, and some of the best of the best are in this list of hair clips, bows, and accessories.
Little girls have the prettiest hair; it’s untouched by dye and chemicals, and it’s still got that beautiful, natural shine. Draw attention to your little cutie’s hair with some amazingly simple and affordable homemade hair accessories. My favorite of the bunch is the Fascinator Headband, which is made from old denim. That means that this fashion-forward head piece will cost hardly anything, but it will most definitely make a huge statement.
