Glitter Clips

Confession – I do have a little bit of a crush on glitter. Sometimes I have to sprinkle a pinch into my crafting without being gaudy. I thought one glitter hair clip at a time would be fine, but Peaches demanded them all. Otherwise… no smiles, no cooperation. You can see who won and the satisfaction on her face.


  • Glitter
  • Mod podge
  • Paint brush
  • Plastic hair clips
  • Water (for cleaning brush)
  • Scrap paper

Using the same ratio as this project, pour a dime size amount of mod podge and glitter onto scrap paper. Mix the two together. Use a small paint brush to paint the mix onto the hair clip. I had to do three coats before I was happy with the finished look. You can just wash the brush in water and let it dry.  

Below is the sequence of events of me losing the glitter to gaudy.

Peaches is so satisfied.

The Real Deal: Is cost less than $2.00 to make all 5 glitter hair clips.
