My girls asked if we could make some flower clips over the weekend so I thought it would be a good time for a refresher. I have shown how to make these on a headband but these flowers are backed with a clip. My girls love wearing them and I like to borrow them every once in a while too. We made them together and it would make a great Summer craft. They also make great gifts!
I started with some cheap flowers I found at Hobby Lobby.
I pulled off one of the flowers from the stem.
Then I pulled off the remainder of the flower to get to the petals.
I cut a felt circle just smaller than the size of my flower.
Then, I hot glued the petals down to the felt one layer at a time.
Here it is all layered up…
Finally, it’s bling time. I like to use rhinestones on the smaller flowers. I put a little
spit water on a small dowel to pick up and place my rhinestone in the center of the flower.
Finally, I added my clip. I like to purchase my snap clips at RibbonRetreat.com but you can also find them at Hobby Lobby and Sally’s. I just open it up and run some glue along the top. Watch you fingers 🙂
That’s it. Simple, cheap and so cute. These are just a couple that I have made using this method.
And of course Ash likes to make them too! Her collection trumps mine for real. And here is her little one modeling a flower at Easter…
Love. The flower and the picture of course 😉
Thanks so much for stopping by! Don’t forget about our Shanty Suppers party on the 19th! We are so excited about it!
