DIY Flower Clips {Picture Tutorial}

May 17, 2012 7 Comments | Disclosure

I have 2 girls and they both love to wear bows in their hair. I LOVE to put fun accessories in their hair and am always looking for something fun, new and inexpensive to make! I am not a good bow maker (so I usually buy those), but I figured out how to make flower hair clips a few years ago. It is a quick, inexpensive gift to make for a baby shower; or if you are missing the perfect accessory for your little girl’s outfit. Here is what you need to make these cute flower clips.

Silk Flowers-I always buy them when they are on sale. I got mine from Michael’s when they were buy one get one free so they were $1 each {see if there are any you like on Amazon}

Hair Clips-They are cheapest at Sally’s I got a box of 100 for about $4 {it was a few years ago that I got the box so I can’t remember exactly how much they were, there are also some on Amazon}

Flat rhinestones-Michael’s {30 for $3 – or find some on Rhinsstones on Amazon)

Brads {one for each flower} {find some Brads on Amazon}

Glue gun {find a glue gun on Amazon}

Wire cutters {find wire cutters on Amazon}

First you pull of the stem then place the wire cutters between the green part and the flower and cut the stem. Be careful not to cut the flower!

flower-3

Pull off the yellow part on the front of the flower

flower-4

Place a brad in the front of the flower through the hole

flower-5

Fasten the brad down in the back

flower-6

Put some hot glue on the brad in the center of the flower

flower-7

Place the flat rhinestone in the middle of the flower. Hold it firmly until the glue cools.

flower-9

Put hot glue on the back of the flower

flower-8

place the hair clip on the glue

I used a glue stick so I wouldn’t burn my fingers to get the flower firmly pressed on the glue. Let it dry and you are ready to wear it

Here are the 4 flower clips I made in just about 10 minutes for under $5 for all of them. I think one flower clip that you buy premade costs $5!

My 4 year old was so excited for her new flower clips. She had to put on in right away!

  1. THE FLOWERS WERE 1/2 OFF AT HOBBY LOBY LAST TIME I WAS THERE AND I MADE THESE FOR MY DAUGHTERS DANCE CLASS RECITAL I WAS ABLE TO MAKE THEM FOR UNDER $1/ CLIP CHEAP AND REALLY CUTE!!!

  2. Another way to make them instead of using a brad is just to glue each layer of the flower to the last. Then you don’t have to buy the brads and they can be even cheaper:) That’s how I make mine.

  3. Also, if you have a Sally Beauty Supply store in your area you can buy the clips there for cheaper than on Amazon. They’re $5.99 for 100, plus you can use coupons and they have sales too.

  4. Another great place to buy the flowers at a good price is at garage sales sales and thrift shops.
