DIY Brass Circle Barrette

After growing out my hair for 6 years I was bored with the long hair and was completely over the headaches from wearing my hair up at work. So I went back to short hair and it’s been fun to play with it and try out some new styles! I’ve been adding a few more go-to pieces to my jewelry collection lately like this necklace, this ring, this watch and I’ve been looking for some nice simple hair accessories to go with my short hair. I’ve seen a lot of minimal hair clips out there these days and it brings me back to my childhood. I still have a little collection of barrettes that I wore when I was little – mini trolls, rainbows, pompoms, big bows… I loved them all! But these new, simple ones have a much more useable twist to go with my pretty simple wardrobe these day. I decided to make one of my own simple barrettes the other day because I had all of the supplies on hand already from other projects. Takes a minute to put together and I love it!DIY Brass Circle Barrette @themerrythoughtDIY Brass Circle Barrette @themerrythoughtWhat you need:
