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.
Step 2: Starting with the outer end, begin rolling felt, tightly first, then a little looser as the rose gets bigger.
Step 3: When you get to the end, hold in place with hot glue and use the center of felt circle as the base of the flower.
For the Dahlias:
Step 1: Cut a strip of felt about 1-1 1/2″ wide and 6-8″ long. Fold in half lengthwise and glue together at edges to make a loop.
Step 2: Cut 1/4″ or so slits all the way along the folded edge. These will be the petals.
Step 3: Roll flower tightly and glue in place with glue gun.
To make them into clips:
Step 1: Cut leaf shapes out of green felt.
Step 2: Carefully apply glue to top of clip.
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!
