5 Minute Hair Clips
Alligator hair clips
Glue gun and glue stick
Glue an embroidered patch onto a clip… VOILA!
When it’s a house full of girls, we often find we’re having a hair clip shortage. We’ve made plenty, but when you need them, they’re nowhere to be found. In a pinch, and wanting a little funk, we took some embroidered patches we’d been hoarding and turned them in to clips. It probably takes less than 5 minutes to make, but you do have to wait to warm up the glue gun. Thus, 5 minute hair clips!

Hey SoCal Friends! If you’re free next Friday and Saturday head over to Pinners Conference in San Diego. I will be there Friday teaching a Beginning Macrame class and we’ll each be making a wall hanging! Get your tickets here and use the code CAKIES to get 10% off! Hope to see some of you there and be sure to say hi!
I went to Pinners Conference in Dallas last September and had so much fun as a student. It’s like Disneyland for makers. This time around, I’m excited to get to be a teacher!
If you’re in Minneapolis, I’ll be there in June to teach more macrame classes at Pinners Conference. I’ll be doing two different macrame workshops. Get tickets for MN here and use code CAKIES to get 10% off tickets there too.

Paper Plate Crown
9″ – 12″Paper plates (we used these plates)
Starting at the center at the back of the paper plate, cut into 8 equal triangles. Fold each triangle up. Print out the gem template and cut out gems to be colored, or print onto colored card stock, and glue onto each triangle.
My little queen would gladly declare ice cream every day, and I don’t mind that one bit! My girls are always playing dress up, so we wanted to come up some
crowns that are easy enough to make with things probably already lying around your house.

I have a few macrame workshops coming up and I’ve been busily prepping samples and supplies for them. I love working with rope and I love being able to teach this skill to others. I’ll be at the San Diego Pinners Conference on April 13th teaching a beginning macrame wall hanging class, so if you’re available that day, sign up to get tickets to the conference here. Use the code CAKIES and get 10% off your tickets! If you’d like to host your own pop-up workshop for a birthday party, bridal shower, or just get together with friends, send me an email and let’s plan it!

Bunch of fresh flowers
Cut out small bunches of flowers about 5′ long. Wrap wire around the bottom of the stem and continue to wrap downward to add more small bunches of flowers. Continue wrapping flowers together until desired size to fit around the head. Wrap wire to connect both ends together. Tip: Wrap wire in a downward as you continue adding flower bunches to your crown.
These could easily be made with lavender stems, herbs, vines, or other plants you have growing in your backyard, which is how we made the other crowns for our Galentine’s post.
