bow tie hair clip diy

2.jpgI am often on the hunt for cute hair accessories. The only problem is that they can be very expensive, and I generally only wear them a few times before I grow bored of them. I also do that with my clothes. Shoes and purses though, are another story.

Now that you have some useless insight into my personality, I’m going to show you how to make several simple, and better yet inexpensive, Bow Tie Hair Clips.

1.jpg1. Purchase small, multi-coloured bow ties (I got mine from the Dollar Store).

3.jpg2. Purchase hair clips (I prefer bobby pins).

4.jpg3. Adhere the bow ties to the clips. A glue gun will work best, but because I chose bow ties with adhesive already applied, I simply needed to peel and stick them onto the bobby pins.

5.jpgThis craft cost less than $2.50 to make, and took a total of 5 minutes. That’s approximately $0.50 per minute. While those would be horrible minimum wage earnings, that’s a more than reasonable DIY experience!

Games Night.

IMG_4.jpg IMG_2.jpgIMG_3.jpg IMG_1.jpgOctober to January are probably the busiest 4 months around our home. I am guessing that may be true for lots of people. With October comes four birthdays, Thanksgiving, and Halloween. My birthday and most of our Christmas shopping occurs in November. December brings Christmas, more shopping, two additional birthdays, and New Years Eve. Finally, January is all about making changes and celebrating my husband’s birthday. It never ends!

My mentality has always been to work hard and play very little. However, the older I get, the more I realize that work is not everything. I am starting to see how important it is to take the time to unwind, if only for an hour a day. Hanging out with friends is something that almost never happens, but is also something that I am trying to incorporate into my life more. This may only come once a month, but when it does, I make sure to set aside an entire evening to do so. Games night is a great example how I like to spend time relaxing with friends.

Now that we are in the final weeks before Christmas, please make sure you also take some time out for yourselves! This will help you unwind, regroup, and feel rejuvenated for the holiday season. With all of the planning and stress that goes into it, it’s sometimes easy to forget the real meaning of Christmas.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
