10 Pretty DIY Hair Accessories

After several years of wearing my hair cut in a short bob, I’ve been growing my hair out over the last few years. While I loved the fun look of a bob, I got a little bored after a while. Now that my hair is longer, I love being able to play with different styles! Which may explain why I’m in love all kinds of pretty hair clips, bows and headbands these days. Ever the DIYer, though, you know I’d rather make my own pretty little hair baubles than purchase them. (Duh. That’s how I do.) With a couple of special occasions coming up, I’ve been hunting around for a couple of great hair accessories to make and actually came up with 10 that I love! Want to take a peek?
