This is NOT a craft blog and I am NOT that crafty but, reader left a comment on my Hobby Lobby Post, asking me how I made the flower hair clips/ broaches in my picture. I meant to post this last weekend, but things got a little crazy :). So here you go! It’s super easy, if anyone has any helpful tips or tricks, please leave a comment!
Step #1 – Pull all the center pieces out of the flower, and all the plastic and green leaves that go with it. This should be fairly easy. They usually just snap out, but occasionally you’ll run into some glue. If this happens, just pull the petals apart as carefully as you can. The petals will be layered, so perfection is not needed!
Step #2 – Layer the petals as desired. I usually zig zag the petals so they overlap in different ways. Feel free to add in petals of different colors from different flowers – very cute! Once you have a general idea of design, hot glue each petal in each layer individually. Then ad a center piece, such as a button, glass round, or pearl ( I got the pearls from Walmart – but check out thrift stores for jewelry!).
Step #3 – Hot glue a hair clip (found at Hobby Lobby -was $2 for big bag- or Hair Supply Store). You can also glue a safety pin in conjunction with the hair clip so you can use the flower as a broach on a cute cardigan as well!
