Here is a hair barrette I whipped up in literally five minutes for Lily before church, and half that time was waiting for the hot glue gun to heat. You take a flower head from any artificial flowers you like (mine was from a flower arrangement my aunt was going to take to the DI), remove the center-it pops apart into two pieces, insert a brad (I used a sparkly one to match her dress), glue a piece of ribbon to a french clip (you can buy these at most craft stores), and then glue the flower on top. That's it! It is so easy and cheap, and you can make them to match any outfit.
This is what the underside looks like.
