Flower Clips, Boutique Style

We were invited to a Flower/Bow Making get-together to celebrate back-to-school and get our girls accessorized for the upcoming year. I had never attempted Flower Clips but they were super easy and I'm sure I'll be making more. All you need are fake flowers and hairclips (we used alligator style) and hot glue (or something equivalent), oh and wire cutters or kitchen scissors. Just cut a flower head from the bunch that they come in - then remove any of the leaf parts, including the big green plastic piece under the flower - then trim the stem completely off. If the bottom flower petals come off, glue them to the next layer up. Take the flower and glue it to the clip. Voila! Here they are shown clipped in hair on the side, but they're cute over a ponytail as well. We made several sizes, but I love the big honkin' ones. You can experiment and layer different colors (just pull the petals apart) and add bling to the centers, etc.

They turned out really nice. Too bad they aren't in school yet to show them off. They'll have to wear them to church so we can all see.
