6 Ways with… Hair Clips: Felt Flowers

The first of our 6 decorated hair clips… Felt Flowers. Aren’t they sweet? And really simple to start the project off. I made this felt flower using a jumbo hair clip and more muted colors giving it a bit more of a mature feel, but to adjust it for kids just use a normal sized hair clip and lots of lovely bright colors. Easy.

All the upcoming projects are perfect for both little and big girls 🙂 So there is no reason not to give them a try. Each of the project only take minutes, especially if you’ve pre covered your hair clips.

For your jumbo Felt Flower Hair Clip you’ll need:

To make it up:

  1. Cut 3 circles – One 5cm in diameter, one 6cm in diameter and one 7cm in diameter. This can all be approximate. I just loosely cut around a large spool of thread and continued enlarging my circle
  2. Place your circles on top of each other (small to big) and sew in place towards the fat end of your hair clip
  3. Take your chosen seed beads and sew liberally and at random in the centre of your flower. Make sure your beads are big enough to fit over your sewing needle.

And that’s it! Only a ten minute project with a cute winter flower accessory to show for it. If using normal sized hair clips, follow the steps as normal just adjust you circle size (One circle 2.5cm, one circle 3cm, and one circle 3.5cm). Hope you’re going to give it a go!
