Last night I came across the amazing ‘Julie’s Blog‘ where she had a post on how to actually make a flower hair clip and heart hair clip all be yourself [tutorial]. I became so nostalgic after going through them. My mom used to make rubber bands and hair clips for me and my sister when we were kids, and for the same I couldn’t stop myself from sharing it with you guys. Maybe someday somebody might try it out for their beautiful daughters.
All you need is:
- Paper and 5 quarters (to make the template)
- Lots of colours of felt (make sure you get yellow for the flower centre)
- Needle and thread
- Hot glue gun
- Hair clips, or pins for the backing
A) Heart Hair Clip Tutorial
Step 1: Cut out 3 Felt hearts. Two larger ones for the main color, and 1 smaller one for the center color.
Step 2: Sew the pink heart onto the middle of 1 green heart
Step 3: Sew the 2 green hearts together
Step 4: Glue a hair clip on the back.
Your heart hair clip is ready
B) Flower Hair Clip Tutorial
Step 1: Make the template. You need a five petal flower.
Step 2: Cut 4 flowers (per hair clip) and 2 yellow circles for the center.
Step 3: Fold it like a cardboard box, but with felt, and fake petals..
Step 5: Sew both yellow circles together
Step 6: Sew flower center onto flower. Make sure to only sew through the first layer of the center.
Step 7: Glue a hair clip or a pin to the back of the flower.
And your flower hair clip is ready.
