Simple Hair Clip Keeper
Designed by Julie A Bolduc
This hair clip keep can of course be also used for barrettes. It starts out at the top with a bone ring and ends with the large jingle bell at the bottom. This can also be made with holiday colors with decorations on the top part. Make it look like a wreath at the top by adding a bow and beads.
