Flower clips

Macy and I made a bunch of these Monday morning. Seriously easy! She likes them clipped to her newsboy type hat. I have to admit it’s pretty darn cute. You could easily clip them on a headband or just in your hair, too.

Here’s what we did:

Cover an alligator clip with ribbon. Directions with pictures can be found here. You can buy boxes of alligator clips cheap at Sally’s.

All the flowers pictured above came from Dollar Tree. We popped off the individual flowers and took them apart. Most of them we layered 2 flowers together. You can sew them or glue them. Cut the plastic stem thing on the back as flush as you can and glue them to the clips.

Want better instructions? (And who can blame you, really?) Try these!

  5. Well, three girls of my own and none love to have hair clips (ok,ok the youngest is still pretty bold for hairclips)! Sigh!
    Thanks for all those tutorials!

  6. I feel like I was apart of making these since I was on the phone with you whilst you were gluing them. Yet, I don't really see my name mentioned anywhere in the credits. Heh.

    Thanks for this! I am sick of paying $10.00 for a pair of cute hair bows.

  8. Dollar tree? Seriously? I have never thought to look there. And I am very picky about my silk flowers. Lol.
