How to Make Flower Clips

After having some friends over, I decided that I need to work on my accessories.
So, I made some flower clips for my hair.
They are so easy to make.
These are great because they work for long or short hair
and for headband for babies!
First: Gather your supplies. You will need:
  • Fake Flowers of Any Kind. (I find that the flatter flowers work better)
  • Wire Cutters
  • Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Clips
  • 3/8" ribbon
Second: Snip off the stem of all the flowers.
They usually have a green piece around the bottom of the flower
take that off too.
Third: Get your Clips.
Fourth: Cut a piece of ribbon long enough to wrap around the top of your clip. Clip one end of the fabric inside. Put a line of glue on top of the clip and fold your ribbon back over itself. This will glue the piece clipped inside to the outside ribbon.
Fifth: Put a dot of glue on the top and bottom of the clip where you press to open it and continue to wrap the ribbon.



Sixth: Snip off any extra.
Your clip should look like this.
You can also get some cute ribbon and make little clips for your little ones.
Seventh: Glue your flower to the middle of your clip.
And your done!




Wear them yourself and share them with your girls!!


Enjoy!
