Tiny Blooms Hairclips

Since I made my pink rosettes clip, I've been using it a lot since it goes so well with my wavy hair. I decided I needed more colors so I made some more.

I prepared a short tutorial on how to make them.

You will need:

Materials to make the clip with the white flowers.

  • A hair clip
  • A small felt circle (around 1 inch in diameter)
  • Your flowers (you can use rolled rosettes or cut flowers from a piece of lace/trim like the one in my photo)
  • Green satin ribbon (0.25 inches wide)
  • Glue gun
Step 1: Cut 3 1.5 inch strips of satin ribbon. Fold in the middle, overlapping the 2 right sides (see photo below). Secure both ends with glue gun. Repeat for all 3 strips.

Step 2: Glue the 3 strips of green ribbon on the felt circle.

Step 3. Glue your flowers on to the felt circle. You can use rosettes or flowers cut from lace trim (like the white one, and then I added small pearls to the center of each flower).

Step 4. Glue the felt circle to the clip.

I think I need these clips in more colors. I love them!
