Flower Hair Clip

I know everyone is starting to get restless and excited in anticipation for spring. What better way to get your little girls ready than these adorable flower hair clips? They are so incredibly easy I literally made them in like 5 minutes!


Most artificial flowers can just be pulled apart from the stem and any remaining stem pieces {like in the picture} can be cut off with scissors. However, there are some with wired stems. In those instances I would use wire cutters to remove the stem as close to the base of the flower as possible. Run a strip of hot glue across the center of the felt circle, squeeze the clip open and attached the felt circle to the bottom of the top part of the clip {I hope that makes sense}

Put hot glue all over the top of the felt circle and attach it to the bottom of the flower. Be sure to press the felt to the flower all the way around so it holds really good. To take care of the ugly green spot, hot glue a gem to the center of the flower. This is where you can also add glitter to the petals if you choose. I just put a little bit of glue on the tips of the petals and sprinkled glitter onto the glue.

McKenzie is dying to get more flowers in other colors to make more. I also want to get shorter clips to use with the smaller flowers in the bunch for pigtail clips.
