Red, White, & Pretty Barrettes, Free Crochet Pattern + Video



The other day when I was making the Star Spangled Wreath, I had some leftover stars, and me being one not to waste (more like a yarny pack rat), I decided to make a cute and super fast little accessory for Independence Day festivities.

In case you missed it, here are the instructions and star pattern for the wreath too:


Anyway, I had an extra barrette lying around (a bobby pin would be just as cute)...


...ran a stripe of hot glue over it and stuck the little stars on.  You could easily use some Fabri-tac as well.


Adorable!
