Make your own fancy cameo barette!!

Here is a special idea for you how to make your hair look more beautiful.Hope you like it!!

Things you need:
-a plastic barette
-a pretty ribbon cut to the same length as your barette or a trim
-gold-colored metal rosettes
-bright red metal rosettes
-flat-backed cameo
-a hot glue gun
-all-purpose glue

What you need to do:
1.Place glue on your barette
 Plug in and heat up the glue gun.Squeeze a thin line of glue along the length of the barette.
2.Lay the ribbon or the trim
 Lay the ribbon or the trim along the barette,and press it down until the glue cools.
3.Glue the cameo on
 Use the glue gun to deposit a small glob of glue in the center of the barette.Lay the cameo onto the glue,and hold it in place until it sets.

4.Plan your rosette design
 Work out a strategy for how you are going to place your rosettes.Place a small dot of glue where the first rosette will go,and apply the rosette.

5.Apply the red rosettes
 Repeat the same process all the way down the barette with the bright colored flowers.

6.Apply the gold rosettes
 Now,attach the metal flowers using either the hot glue gun,or the all-purpose craft glue to get in to smaller spaces.
7.Attach the rhinestones
 Apply a dab of all-purpose glue on the back of a rhinestone,and attach it near the cameo.Repeat the same thing with all the rhinestones.
So,it's done!!Enjoy!!

                                                                 Sincerely yours,
