Easy Flower Hair Clip Tutorial (No Glue and No Sew!)

Pin It

I know that there are a lot of tutorials out there in blogland showing how to make flower hair clips! But a couple weeks ago my daughter attended a birthday party, and she got the cutest flower hair clip as a party favor. The mom of the birthday girl showed me how she made them, and I was very impressed with the fact that this is SO fast and easy to make - probably one of the fastest instant result projects I ever made! 

So I am not claiming this project as my own idea, but since I really liked this super easy and speedy project, I just HAVE to share this :)


 Ready to make one?


Gather your supplies (this is the most time consuming part, I just happened to have everything laying around):

Alligator clip (Use the one with the opening in the middle as pictured above, not the 2 pronged ones or your flower will slip off)
Brad
Gerbera Daisy 

 Disassemble the daisy, usually they are somehow kept together in the center, just take the stem off the flower, and remove the center of the original flower.

Insert your brad through the hole in the center.

Stick the brad through the top opening of your alligator clip.

Open the brad to attach the flower to the clip.

And THAT'S IT!


Couldn't be easier, right?

I attached the hair clip to a crochet headband, so you could use the hair clip this way too...

I linked up to Sumo's Sweet Stuff.

These are so cute, I love the large flower on the clips. They make a lovely accessory to my little girls outfit. I had a go at making a couple of my own flower hairclips
