amazon has colorful slime charms that could could hot glue onto normal hair barrettes and make cute little hair clips!

omg i used to be obsessed w/ decora :0 thrift stores are always my go-to for accessories!!! mcdonalds toys are great for necklaces !! also if you still have old toys or plastic kids jewelry from when you were younger somewhere i suggest going thru them for things you can use! as for rings/clips I usually buy plastic cabochons on etsy and hot glue em onto ring bases and hair clips

oooh i luv decora kei!!! honestly you could probably DIY and/or customize a ton of stuff to make it more decora kei! buying secondhand is always my go-to. i havent been to claire's in awhile, but they have a lot of stuff that can be used for decora kei! dollar stores can help too if you're looking for accessories ^_^ despite depop's reputation for ppl trying to sell stuff that is overpriced, if you look hard enough you'll find some great deals!! i found almost my entire fairy kei wardrobe on depop LOL;;; also! some small fashion companies may sell mis-printed or flawed items on ebay, which is where i got a holly tea time skater skirt for a huge discount!! hope this helps!!

edit: TOTALLY FORGOT ABT THIS ONE TIP!! look up cabochon (with keywords like kawaii, cute, pastel, etc.) on amazon!! i used to get them in bulk to customize old phone cases with, and you could glue them onto hair clips!

For clips, get charms and plain hair clips in bulk and then stick them on through hot glue or other means!!
