I believe I started a new craft addiction. Um yeah… that would be hair accessories. They are so easy to make and take minutes. I think I decided that I liked them once I started getting compliments when I wore them out. So, today I decided to share another DIY fabric flower barrette.
It all started off on the fourth of July when I made that last minute flower in red, white, and blue to wear with my headband. THEN, I decided to disclose to the world that my head was shaved and these headpieces were absolutely necessary to cover my awkward hair do. Anyway, here’s a fun and easy piece to either keep or give away as a handmade gift.
- Fabric flowers
- Hot glue and hot glue gun
- Hair clip or barrette
First play around with your arrangement. Keep the size of the barrette in mind to make sure you don’t make your flower cluster too big or too small. Hot glue the pieces into place.
The glue will dry in seconds. Next, cut and trim the felt as shown.
Finally, hot glue the barrette onto the center of the hair clip in the desired position.
Here are the two that I made. I like to clip them onto different head bands, or you can also wear them by themselves.
Here is another AFTER photo.
You can package them up in a cute box with ribbon to make a sweet personalized gift. Consider adding pearls or rhinestones for some added BLING!
