Making a hair flower
Posted 29 November 2008 - 12:06 AM
I did do a search and saw that Morgan had posted a great DIY hair flower thread, but I made mine in a different way. Rather than wiring, I used felt, a glue gun and alligator clips.
Here are the steps and pics of the finished product.
Hope this saves some of you lots of time and frustration!
I bought a very cheap bunch of fabric flowers at Michaels (2.99 for the whole thing). I would have liked better quality, but I'm on a tight budget at this point and I don't think it's going to matter in the end!
OH - here's the hair inspiration that my girls chose. The flowers I made are smaller and their hair is very dark.
So I bought the flower stem, cut the flowers off and then pulled the stem all the way out as well as the centre bit, so that the petals came apart as well as all the plastic bits:
Using the little crystal brad that I had in the pic above, I put together the pieces as they were before and used the brad as the centre, to hold them all together. I fastened it at the bottom.

I wrapped the felt around and then glued it a few more times so that it was securely around the clip and the clip opened and closed fine.
Then I glued the flower ontop of the clip.
It's not beautiful underneath, but on top you can't tell at all.
Here it is quickly on my head, for perspective. I feel like a rock star
