$1 Felt Hair Clip Tutorial — makes a great Christmas Gift!

Here’s a great little craft that would make a great Holiday Gift.
  Felt Flower Clips! 
These make great birthday gifts and would be a wonderful Christmas present for a girlfriend, daughter, sister, teacher or neighbor this year.
And they are so affordable to make too — they cost less than $1 to make!!
If you want to make some, here’s what you do: 

1. You will need some felt {I found mine at Hobby Lobby for .25/sheet} and some hair clips.

2. I made a template of a leaf shape in two different sizes.

3. Cut out the shapes. I cut out 6 leaves of each of the two sizes.

4. Then I folded each leaf in half and then sewed a straight stitch half way up each of the leaves down to the stem part of the template.

5. Do this with all of the leaves — the larger and smaller leaves. Then cut out a 5 inch circle out of the same felt.

6. Glue the leaves onto the circle, overlapping each leaf over the edge of the following one.

7. Do the same thing with the second layer of leaves. Then hot glue a fabric-covered button or brad to the center of the flower.

8. Cut a rectangle of felt that is the same length as the clip. Put the felt through the middle of the clip. Then hot glue the clip with the felt attached on to the circle on the bottom of the flower.

Now all you need to do is package the clip up and give it as a wonderful, handmade gift!!
Your friends will love them!
And you can use them as a hair clip AND a pin!!
Have a great day!!!

    The addition of the seam is genius! It really gives the flower a more realistic look. Thanks for linking up to Homemade Christmas, Jen!

  2. This is great! My kindergartener wanted a flower piece, and I couldn't bear to part with $10 for one.

  3. This takes care of the lack of dimension I didn't like about the felt flowers. The seam that I can easily put on these with a straight stitch on my machine gives it some dimension and makes it really cute.
