DIY Barrette holder

Ryan thinks I have been "nesting" this past weekend.  I just wanted to get things done around the house.  I organized my closet, the kitchen cabinets (putting glasses away to make room for bottles) and worked on getting the nursery together.

I found a little tutorial online on how to make a barrette holder.  I have 4 frames that were used at my shower to display ultrasound photos and photos of Ryan and I.  I used these frames to  make the barrette holders.

 A few pictures from the process...

Here is what I started with.. 

I used acrylic paint and painted the frames white.

While they were drying Ryan cut out the foam for me. 

 The fabric was already cut and in the frames.  I put the piece of foam behind the fabric and then cut out ribbon.  The ribbon was then glued stapled to the back (The glue just wasn't working out and I was being inpatient).

Here is the final project... with one little barrette waiting to go in Kinley's hair.
