Mermaids and sea inspired themes are always a hit with little girls! Making hair clips, headbands, or combs is such a fun idea! Using clear nail polish or glitter is great and you could even glue a plastic pearl inside, or even sea glass bits using white craft glue, and covering with a sealant of modge podge to keep it shining and secure. Or even add some small thin satin ribbon in peach, pink or Aqua sea tones, with little knots to secure beads. Great idea, thanks for sharing!
