Spring Crochet Heart Hair Clips

Spring is coming!

I forgot how much I love to crochet these small hearts.  They are quick to make up and can be used for so many different things.  This day I was in the mood for hair clips. I picked up some simple metal snap hair clips and grabbed some left over yarn in pretty spring time colors.  Just like that, I added awesomeness to these boring metal clips!

These little guys are available for sale in the Etsy shop =)

If you’re feeling like trying some of these little hearts out yourself, here is the pattern with original pattern credit going to Skip to my Lou.  I have just written it out a little easier for beginners to understand, like meeee.  But feel free to head on over and pay her a visit to thank her for it!
