I love Project Runway. Season 5 with Kenley Collins was one of my favorites. Kenley was a firecracker, surely, but I loved her retro style, her bangs, and most of all, I loved her fascinators. I had never seen anything like them before except in some old black and white movies. I didn’t think I could carry off huge feathery chiffon bombs like Kenley’s, so I ordered some of the small, more conservative hair accessories that JCrew and Anthro were selling online, like these cute pom pom clips. But, it’s been a long time since I’ve worn them. My love for hats has superseded my fascination for hair accessories, so my pom pom clips have taken a back seat until recently, when I found some cool safety-pin backs at The Hobby Company. I figured that I could replace the hair clips with the pin backs, and make myself some pom pom lapel pins instead. It’s such an easy and cute project that I want to share it with everyone who has an unused fascinator or hair pom pom resting in their closet. This is really simple, guys… ;)
Step 1: Remove the clip.
Step 2: Apply a strip of Fabri-Tac. Fabri-Tac is gummy and dries really fast so attach the pin back right away! Let the glue dry for a couple of hours and you’re done. Yay!
