unfortunately I really do think you need something really strong. I chose the wool felt b/c it is super porous and I knew that it would hold a great bond with whatever glue.  I still think that something like E600, Superglue, two part epoxy etc is the best.

It's worth a try for the kids craft glue. The circle really helps hold it on and using wool will improve your bond with whatever glue you try. Good luck!

I have really thick hair so I put the wiggly side down. Do you have fine hair? I should keep that in mind when I make some for my mom then. She's got superfine hair:)

Yes I do have really fine hair! Well there you go I've learnt something new (well another new thing!) my mum had fine hair too, so maybe thats why I thought it always went that way

Hey I was wondering if you have tried gluing buttons to other hair clips? I have a picture I can post of what I mean.. I bought some E6000 glue today.. and tried out some clips.. now i'm not using wool in between, just button to clip but ya they snapped off..they have been drying for about 2 hours.. Do you know if they need longer to dry, or if this is just a job for super glue?
Any help would be great Smiley And lemme know if its okay to post the picture in your thread.  thaanks Cheesy

I really think that using a felt piece helps add gluing surface. There just isn't enough room to use enough glue. It doesn't matter how strong the glue you use is when you've only got 1/16 inch gluing surface.

This technique works on lots of other clips too. Metal is just hard to glue to and hair clips are so tiny and we move around a lot....all of these factors just need to be supported with an appropriate sized gluing surface. That's all. If  you have to use a sheer fabric so it's not super visible then do that. It's a simple rule of engineering; the glues we use are designed to shear away (break off) at certain temperature or under certain conditions. This way we are making the conditions more favorable in our direction Smiley Yay for manipulation!
