I took a tiny break from all the Thanksgiving-Black Friday craziness this week to do another fun & easy little craft project. These adorable hair clips look complicated, but I swear they’re not! I made 8 different clips in only about an hour.
For the Roses:
Step 1: Cut a small circle out of felt (the bigger the circle, the bigger your flower). Use a sharp scissors to cut a spiral into the circle as shown. You can make the line wavy or straight, depending on how you want your roses to look.
For the Dahlias:
To make them into clips:
Step 3: Arrange 2 leaves over glue. Be sure to glue overlapping flap in place too, then use a generous amount of hot glue to secure the flower to the leaf base. Let dry completely!
For the button clips:
The button clips are so easy they don’t really require a tutorial: just cut a small oval of felt to fit over the clip, and glue in place like the leaves above. Going in a small section at a time, glue buttons of coordinating colors in place on the felt.
To finish them off, I just cut coordinating pieces of card stock with a pinking shears and cut slits to slide the clip into. Easy peasy!
