{Flower Hair Clips}

Thursday, May 28, 2009

Think I need to go back on my craft-spending diet again! I also want to do something to end my and Belle'shair rut. Time to get creative! This is what I came up (for Belle) with using only what we had on hand:



I started by pulling the green end off an artificial carnation from my mother-in-laws old dining table centerpiece. It leaves a nice little hole to thread anything through. Think buttons, beads, pearls (oh, how I wish I had a pearl...).



Belle had a bead set with this green bead. The color combination reminded me of watermelon. I threaded it through the carnation.



Flip it over and thread it through a bobby pin. I also took my needle through the carnation petals to add more stability, and added a dab of hot glue (not shown).





Check our Kristin, the Faithful Fashionista's post on hair accessories. And don't forget my other flower accessories-I may hot glue a pin to a carnation and where them this way.

One more plug, then I'll go. Check out Lewa's Designs. She makes very clever vinyl wall art and is GIVING some away this week!!! Stop by her blog for details or A Soft Place to Land, where I found out about the FREE caterpillar I'm ordering! Now where should I stick him?...

I'm going to use this idea to create some hair accessories for my girls! I have lots of spare silk flowers, as I use them to make Christmas garlands and table decorations - my hot glue gun is my favourite appliance! Thanks for the tip about liquid sandpaper! I hope they sell it over here in Australia!
