Valentine’s Day is definitely our favorite time of the year. It’s a time filled with love and special sweet surprises for all of the important people in your life! Our beloved longtime classic candy, Sweethearts, is a staple for this season. Fans love to eat and share these little sweets with the cute sayings on them; they also love using them in holiday recipes, crafts and decorations.
In celebration of this, we will be having a Sweethearts Series up until Valentine’s Day filled with our favorite recipes, crafts, decorations and more. Many ideas are inspired by our amazing Sweethearts and NECCO fans! Stay tuned here on our World of NECCO Blog for all of the fun!
Today, we have a quick Valentine’s Day hair clip DIY. It’s the perfect accessory for your little Sweethearts fan to wear to school or to play with friends! [And who says you can’t wear one yourself! ;-) ] With very few supplies and a couple of minutes, you’ll be on your way to starting your Valentine’s Day celebration with Sweethearts! Enjoy & be sure to check in again tomorrow!
- Metal Hair Clip
- Squeeze Glue Bottle or Crazy Glue
- Glitter Glue
1. Clean your hair clip to make sure there’s no dust or dirt. This will help the glue and Sweethearts adhere better to the clip.
2. Take your squeeze glue bottle or crazy glue and spread a thin line along each edge of the hair clip. Then, line up four Sweethearts (or more if you have a bigger clip) and press each one firmly yet delicately onto the clip.
3. Pressing firmly helps to set the glue properly. Allow it to dry completely. Once dry and Sweethearts are secure to the clip, take the glitter glue and squirt a small dollop onto each of the Sweethearts. Using either your finger or a small paintbrush, evenly spread the glitter glue all over the exposed portions of the Sweetheart.
Allow the clip to dry completely so that it is not tacky in any way; this will help avoid any hair getting stuck accidentally! Once dried, clip it in your little one’s hair and get ready for a very sweet day! Enjoy! =)
