This a very simple DIY that required items that every crafter should have on hand.
-Glue gun and glue
I applied a small amount of glue to the barrette and quickly pressed the barrette onto the back of the fabric of choice. I then cut around the barrette, leaving enough fabric to fold over and glue to the back of the barrette to avoid fraying. For the lace covered barrette, just repeat with a piece of lace after applying the fabric.
I even toyed with the idea of adding a button or some other embellishment but I got lazy. Perhaps next time!
