Flower Hair Clips
Saturday, July 10, 2010

Lauryn and I spent a fun, girly afternoon together.  After a haircut (for her) and lunch, we went on a shopping expedition to find what we needed to make flower hair clips. A much requested item of late, as it's been reported that "all" her friends are wearing them. 

After rejecting the price Hobby Lobby was charging for an artificial flower ($4 bucks for ONE individual flower?  Ya gotta be kidding me), Lauryn and I ended up at Dollar Tree. Dollar Tree never lets me down!



3 bunches of artificial flowers = $3.00
8 metal hair clips at Michael's (FYI: find them in the ribbon aisle) = $2.00

First I popped a flower off its stem, then pulled out the green plastic thingie in the center holding it together.  Like such:



Then I cut some fabric the length of the hair clip and hot glued it on:


The fabric isn't seen; it gets covered up by the flower, and gives the flower more to stick to:


Then I just hot glued the petals onto the fabric, layer by layer. Easy and quick.  

Here we are, modeling our lovely creations!





So cute!

I should have purchased some small fake jewels for the center of the flowers. But I forgot, so we used a button on one, and a clear stone on another.  Still cute.

I have a lot of flowers left -- if your little girl receives a gift from me anytime soon, it will be decorated with a flower hair clip!  Wouldn't these be cute clipped on a gift bag, or used as a bow on a package?

Nice Job!
You can also use ribbon instead of fabric. Just make sure you burn the cut ends of the ribbon.
