My sister-in-law and I decided that for presents to each other's children, we would just trade toys (since they are all 3 and under and enjoy any kind of toy if it is "new"). So, I decided last night that I should make something extra for my niece (who is 2 and the oldest in her family) and realized that I have almost a million hair clips that I could decorate for her. So, I made these:

after they were baked, I painted them with nail polish to make them sparkly and shiny

And, since she is just about the most girly girl you could ever meet, I made her a unicorn hair clip too:


I don't know if I am sure about the unicorn... I don't know what it is, but something just doesn't sit right with me. My son, when he saw them this morning, said, "Mom, I love this unicorn, it is beautiful!"
So, maybe I just have looked at it too much. I don't know.

Very nice barrette work!!  Love that you used sparkly fingernail polish for parts too (hopefully it was acrylic polish) --quicker if you have it too than mixing Pearl Ex or microfine glitter etc into Varathane or another clear finish.

I like the unicorn too (..I might have put the unicorn on a "regular" shaped base though, like an oval or something, rather than trying to do the very fiddly shadow-cutting thing around it... ack  Shocked)

they are adorable!  i think you did spend too much time looking at the unicorn.  i hate all of my projects when i just finish with them...quit looking at them for a few days and then start to like them again!  you are your own worst critic!  i love the glitter!

I was going to put it on a background, but it was already so large, I didn't want to make it too huge since it is for a two year old girl
