A long time ago, I wrote a post about some hair clips I made. Today, since I'm not selling them anymore, I would do a tutorial on how to make them. They are super easy and super cute. I recently just gave a set to my friend's three year old daughter, and she loved them!
I've made several different kinds, but the directions are pretty much the same for any of them.
- Embroidery floss, various colors
- Hair accessories and clips (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby)
- Headbands (I bought a 6 pack of cloth covered ones at the Dollar Tree)
- Various buttons and plastic jewels
- Sewing needle
- Crochet hook (I used size a size B hook)
- Hot glue gun

They're pretty easy to make and offer so much variety.
This can be done by changing the size of the circle you begin with. I then sewed the flowers, or flowers and leaves together.
I used hot glue to glue on the jewel centers.
For a more grown up look, I made a couple with an off white lace weight yarn. I did a dainty layered flower and attached it to a comb. It looked super cute in a country chic way. I liked tucking it into a twisted updo. Unfortunately, I lent it to someone and never got it back, so I can't show you pictures of that. The point is, it's really easy to make this idea work for grown up girls too!
