A few weeks ago, my daughter asked if she could have her nails painted. After picking out the nail color she wanted, she then asked if she could do it herself.
In that moment I realized how fleeting this stage of life is. The stage when she wants to dress like me or play with makeup together. Too soon I will be replaced with girlfriends and YouTube videos.
That’s why I’m making a point to cherish this precious time now. Take time out of the chaos of mom life and braid hair, paint nails, or play dress up while we can.
- 1 Large Silver Barrette
- 1 Small Silver Barrette
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Small Pink Faux Flowers
- Scissors or Box Cutter
First, make sure you clean your barrettes. Rubbing alcohol is good for this if your barrettes aren’t real silver. This ensures the glue bond is stronger.
Next remove the flowers from your stems.
Also remove 2 of the end stems from the flowers.
Then trim the plastic ends off of the flowers so that they will sit flush with the barrette.
- Make sure you do this on a cutting mat or other protected surface if using a box cutter. You don’t want to scratch up your table.
For the larger (or mommy) barrette, glue the end stems to either side of the barrette. This gives it a subtle variation from your daughter’s barrette.
Next, glue flowers to each of the barrettes until they are fully covered.
- Make sure to place the flowers facing multiple directions. This makes the blooms visible from every angle and more thoroughly covers the barrettes.
These barrettes are so incredibly simple to make and 100% budget friendly. One floral bunch from the Dollar Tree was more than enough to cover the barrettes. Bonus tip for you, if your daughter has fine hair like mine, pull her hair up with a hair tie first. Then slide the barrette through her hair above the hair tie. This will keep it from falling out.
In the end, my daughter had difficulty painting her nails and asked me to help her. It was still an eye-opening experience for me. You better believe we will be rocking these DIY matching mommy + daughter pink floral barrettes all summer long. What other ways will you cherish this phase of life with your daughter?

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
