Easy Handmade Hair Clips

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:

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!
