I'm currently in the process of redecorating a red corduroy tote that a friend made me a couple years back. At the time she let me pick out my own decorations, but looking back I'm not really sure what I was going for! Then, I tried learning how to crochet and bought some cheap yarn in my favorite colors, however that was also a bust. So, with this yarn and bag that needs an updo, I created a yarn spiral! You could probably make smaller ones and glue them in bunches or onto bobby pins!
First, cut out a circle from sturdy fabric. I used leftover Halloween felt, but you could also use that green foral backing stuff. You could really cut out any shape...I guess...but keep in mind that you're using a hot glue gun so sharp corners might not come out best.
