DIY Flower barrette.

What you need:
-a barrette
-a silk flower
-hot glue gun
-wire cutters

How to: If your silk flower is attached to a stem you need to cut it off the stem. You may need the wire cutter for that. I didn't have to use the wire cutter on mine, it just popped off the stem. Use your hot glue gun and apply glue to the barrette, trying not to use too much. If you use too much it will make a huge mess when you press the flower down. So after you apply the glue, press the flower there, making sure it's even, until the glue has set for about 20 sec. Then let it sit and dry. And there you have your own homemade flower barrette. Note: You can buy really cute cheap flowers at the dollar tree, you may even find some barrettes there that you can use. If not you could probably get them at Michael's, wal-mart or really any craft store. I had mine lying around the house. You could even use an old barrette that you don't like any more.
