What you Need.
|Duck Billed Clips|
- Shop around for some great silk flowers from your local hobby/craft store (there's some great deals out there, Joanne has most of theirs on sale for 50% off)
- Wire cutter (you don't want to cut the steams off with scissors since it will dull them pretty quickly)
- Duck billed clips (not sure what exactly these are called so I included a picture, plus I like the way the shot turned out)
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks (I used all-purpose glue sticks)
- Felt (works well as it doesn't absorb glue like a lot of other fabrics do)
Let's get Crafting!
Step 1: Clip the steam off, as close to the flower as you can
Step 2: If there is a plastic cap on the back of the flower you'll want to remove that by gently peeling it off, it will glue on better without the plastic and snip off any steam nub that remains.
Step 3: Cut out a piece of felt approximately the same size as the top of your duck billed clip
Step 4: Place glue along the lengthwise edges of the felt and place on top of clip, hold in place while glue cools - careful this can be hot (also open up the clip so that you don't accidentally glue it together)
|Step 4 - Completed|
|Step 5 - Removing the plastic|
Step 7: Ta-da!!! Your first custom made flower hair accessory. Now go plan the perfect hairstyle to best show off your new creation.
This blog is now going to be updated 4 times per week instead of daily, it's so much fun but some other projects are falling behind...if only that full-time job wasn't so, well, full-time! Next post will probably be Saturday or Sunday, but until then feel free to leave a comment! We love comments!
What craft projects are you most proud of? If you make your own let me know how it went!
