Easy To Make Hair Flowers


I am posting this at Beverly's Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound and Making the World C.U.T.E.R

Every two weeks about seven, sweet girls from our church meet at my house to do activities.  They range in age from eight to ten.  My daughter Talley is in this age group and we have a blast!  This week we made flower clips.  I have included the instructions below.  Super simple and cheap to make.  The little girls love to wear them...and most of them chose PINK flowers!  You will need a silk flower, brass brad, hair clip, and medical tape.  You may also need a hot glue gun and jewels or buttons if you want to adorn your flower.  You can also add glitter or ribbon.

                     First, take a silk flower and take the leaves, stem, and inner parts of the flower apart.
Then take a brad and poke it through the holes of the flower.
 
It will look like this.
Put the brad through the hole of the clip (available at beauty supply places) and spread the spikey parts of the brad horizontally.
Then open the clip and secure bottom part of clip with tape (medical tape).
Use hot glue to glue jewel on if you desire and you are DONE!

Oh, I'll be those little girls love making these. You could clip them to a bag or as curtain tie-backs in a girl's room. Very clever and simple.
