This project does require a candle, and use of heavy tools, so if you're a kid, be sure to get your parents to help.
Leather or Jewelry Glue
Leather Scraps (buy them in bags at craft stores, or find a cheap leather item at a thrift shop)
Optional: Leather Punch Tool
You end up with a super cute barrette like this:
I love making these because store-bought barrettes are limited in style/color, and I like really big flowers, with small clips (because of my fine/fragile hair). Each of these barrettes has a soft leather strip I fixed over the top of the barrette, which greatly reduces snags (owie)! Plus, I can make a matching pin to wear on my jackets that matches my barrettes!
And if you don't feel like/want to/have all the tool to make your own, you can always pick one up in my Etsy shop!
