Refab Flower Hairclip

When I was at CHA in January, I stopped by to say ho-lahh to Leah Kramer (Craftser.org) during her demo in the indie craft area. As expected, she offered an adorable idea: Customized floral hair clips! Before her say a buffet of bins filled with silk flowers, accompanied by a tray of hair clips. We were to choose different flower pieces (after they had all been separated) and put them back together in our own style. I made one, wore it for the rest of the show and recieved scores of compliments! Even better, when I brought it home, Maya snatched it up. She even used it in one of her videos. That definately upped the cool factor for my clip! This project is so fast with a great pay-off, I thought I’d share it with you.

Here is how to make one:

Buy several silk flowers in different colors, styles and sizes (dollar store). Also buy plastic hair clips and little doodads for the center of your flower – gems, crystals, vintage earrings, buttons, etc…

Separate the silk flower pedals from the stem by removing the plastic backing. Keep the center stem!

Build your own flower creation by mixing and matching the pedals and replacing them on the center stem piece.

Hot glue the center accent.

Hot glue to the hair clip!

Here is my Crafty Chica touch – spritz some Tulip Fabric Glitter Spray over the whole thing!

Here is Maya’s video 🙂

Peace, love, and glitter!

Love & light,
