For this DIY I took the white plastic bow hair clip seen in this Photo An Hour, and this outfit post. I got the barrett as a gift with a purchase from ModCloth.
This is the paint and brush I used. I used that tin lid as a paint tray.
I painted the middle band, and the inside of the bow for a pop of color. I needed to paint two coats to cover the white plastic. I'm not much of an all white kind of girl. I'm loving this green color recently. I have tons of things in this color or similar shades, so I thought it would be this DIY. Any color would look great! You could even play with making polka dots or stripes.
Then I varnished the painted areas. I probably should have used a high gloss since the plastic is so shiny, but I rarely like to use anything but satin. Just my personal taste though.
This is what it looks like on now. Yay, totally me. Hope ya'll enjoyed, happy DIYing, chris!
