I made this barrette with using all back to school themed repurposed buttons. You have a notebook and pencil and your ABC's in this fun and whimsical hair clip This hair clip has a youthful appeal but can be appropriate for a child up to an adult (teacher perhaps). The barrette measures 3.5 inches wide and is considered large sized so more or thick hair is better suited here. This is a one of a kind item. These buttons do give some dimension and texture to this barrette. I painted the silver tone clip with black paint. I then apply the repurposed beads with permanent glue and covered the entire piece in a clear coated acrylic to protect it for years to come as well as give it a finished shine. This size barrette costs $10.00 or if you purchase another style of the same size it will cost you only $18.00.
