So, I made a hair clip. I was really inspired by seeing people make their own hair clips on here, so I decide to make my own!

I went to JoAnn fabrics and all their fake flowers were on sale! I would have never thought I'd ever buy such a large amount of fake flowers in my entire life =D So I bought some orange/red/yellow fall bouquets, and some purple/yellow/all around springy bouquets, some black flowers, some ribbon, and a bunch of different hair clips.

And I'm having a BALL.

=D

Here's the first clip:






I'll post more when I make them. Next on the list is a spring themed one!



EDIT:

I was asked to do a quick word tutorial, so I'll do that now! It's extremely simple, and I'd LOVE to see what you guys do with it. I'm not going to give you all anything specific, like measurements and stuff. =D

You'll need:
- Fake flowers in whatever color scheme you'd like. Remember, it's going in your hair, so don't go TOO big, or else it'll be hard to manage
- Thin wire. I used silver craft wire at 26 gauge.
- Whatever kind of hair clip you want. In this case, I used one of those that you press closed... uh.. is there a name for them? Either way, they were http://www.blueberryforest.com/images/Images_haba/haba_mia_hair_clips_6728_586.jpg those, but just plain and silver.
- Ribbon (optional)
- Scissors

1. So first, find the flowers/leafs/pieces of grass or whatever you think would look good together. Cut them longer than you want it to be, just in case. It's much easier to cut excess off than to try to figure out how the hell to make things longer, as you all know.

2. Arrange the flowers in a "bouquet" in your hand. Shape it how you'd like it.

3. Take your clip, and just start wrapping. I wrapped the bouquet up first, so it would stay. Then, I wrapped that to the clip around the little middle part. Make sure it's nice and tight. Cut the end off when you think it's secure, and then tuck the end under some of the wire, or a place where it won't come up and poke you/get caught on things.

4. Wrap the stem of the bouquet around the end of the clip.. it should be the very tip, and a lot of those clips have a little hole in it. So wrap it through there. Then tie it off like you did earlier.

So yeah. This is very easy, and really.. depending on the flowers and the size, you can definitely wrap it differently. Have fun, and experiment with what you think will work. It's a very cheap project, and it's not the end of the world if you mess up.

Good luck, and let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks for looking!
