I’ve got a great project for you today – – a tutorial for how to make Heart Felt Flower Hairclips. They are perfect for Valentine’s Hairclips (you can see other non-felt types I made a couple of years ago) but really could be used for everyday wear because they’re not too holiday-ish, especially if you did them in other colors. Anyways, check out their cuteness above….
(FYI, it’s still Take-A-Look Tuesday – just scroll down a post for that)
felt – you can grab the cheapo sheets of craft felt at Walmart or Michaels (try this Michaels coupons for current savings!), or buy the felt by the yard at a fabric store – both will work.
hot glue – yep, these are no-sew!
Hairclips for the back (I buy them in a bulk box at Sally Beauty Supply)
First up, cut out a bunch of hearts. Lifestyle Crafts sent me some heart die cuts for use with my Epic 6 machine and I knew it’d be perfect for this project. When I cut the same shape over and over and over, I like when I have a diecut to roll it through my cutter. When I cut one thing, I like using my Silhouette Cameo because you don’t need a specific cartridge or die cut for just one shape. So anyways, I loved using my Epic from Lifestyle Crafts and cranking out a pile of hearts.
It was the first time I had used it to cut felt (normally I cut paper with it) but it worked great!
For one flower clip you’ll need 5 larger hearts, 5 medium hearts, and one small heart.
I first saw this type of flower on this Etsy Shop, Dogwood Corner via pinterest, but obviously there was no tutorial so I had to figure it out on my own. Here’s their picture (hmm, can’t get it bigger or to center). These ones are smaller (2 inch-ish) and mine are bigger (4 inch-ish) but you could make them however you want. Or just buy them from them (although remember they aren’t hairclips yet) – seems like a great price.
