Here’s the deal. I always forget St. Patrick’s Day. Leading up to it, I’m totally on the ball — and then on the day of, I always find myself greenless and getting pinched. So I’m taking a stand. And obviously, making an accessory. Duh.

If you always get stuck without a stitch of green, you should definitely make one of these little guys. Consider it your protection. I have your back, you guys. All you need is a barrette, a glue gun, and whatever little green goodies you have around your house. Think glitter, sequins, beads, ribbon, embroidery thread — you get the picture.

Start by wrapping your barrette with something to cover the metal portion. Embroidery thread or ribbon work well. Glue down the ends and make sure they are secure.

Cover any bald spots with glitter or sequins. Just put a big ol’ pile of hot glue on there and dip it in some glitter. Boom. Use a few little pieces to jazz up one end of the barrette.

  1. Cute! I need to make one of these. I always forget about wearing green on St Patrick’s Day. P.S. I have those crane scissors too. The best.

  2. I love those types of clips because they are so strong but never wear them out because they look too industrial or something. Love this way of transforming them.

  3. Not quite every legacy and new-look IT vendor has its own consume on making the whole data center more programmable via software and less dependent on specialized, proprietary and costly hardware.
