First of all, you have to choose your craft items. You can look for the items in your house or you can go to a craft store to buy ribbons and other materials which will be needed to create barrettes. You should buy red or pink gemstones and fabric ribbon which matches with the gemstones. In addition, you need to buy small fuzzy pom poms and fabric stiffener. You can also buy valentine-themed Cupids.
After gathering all the materials, you have to start making your valentine barrettes. Go to an open and clean place. It is better to make it in daylight, but if it is night you can move to room in which there are plenty of lights so that you can see easily. Take a table and cover it with a newspaper or any apparel. Then, place everything on a table. Start winding the ribbon with the help of chopsticks and wooden skewers. After winding, place it on the table to dry (the glue will take a little time to stick it together).
Take your hot glue gun and affix the pom poms and other shapes to the plain barrettes in a prudent way so that they may look nice. Now, place the metal clip on the barrettes which will be used by your girl to hold her hair in the barrettes.
Your valentine barrettes are ready to be given as a gift to your girl.
