Star Wars Scrabble Barrettes

The other day my daughter was complaining about the lack of cute nerdy girl hair accessories, so we decided to make them ourselves. These hair barrettes are incredibly easy to make and customize to just about anything. They would be fun to make with school initials or other fandoms. 

You will need:

  • Scrabble Tiles 
  • Barrettes
  • Hot Glue
  • Shelf Lining 
Old Scrabble games you to be easy to find at thrift stores and yard sales but as Scrabble crafting has become more and more popular, it has become a lot harder! Your best bet it to order them from Amazon. You can usually get 200 tiles for less than $10.

These barrettes worked best with letters that were four letters long. If you want to look for barrettes that are longer or shorter, you can or you can add blank tiles onto shorter words to make them fill the entire barrette. To fulfill my daughter's desire to have nerdy hair things, we went with Star Wars.

Cut a small strip of shelf lining and hot glue it on the inside of your barrette or clip to make the clip no slip. This will help it stay even in extremely fine hair.

What would you put on a clip?
