Ruffle Flower Hair Clip Tutorial

I have a reputation. It isn’t a bad one, thank goodness. But I have a reputation for always putting something in my daughter’s hair.

Not abnormal. But to keep up with this, she has to have a lot of options. Also, she is three and misplaces them quite often.

So, it is rather common that when I come up with a new flower clip idea, I make a bunch of them… because they won’t go to waste.

This is my latest hair clip crush, I can’t get enough of these!

I used some great ruffle trim that the nice people at Wholeport sent me, I got  various colors but all with some adorable polka dots. You can find the kind that I got HERE, HERE and HERE.

Then I just cut some inch and a half or so wide felt circles and fired up the hot glue gun. I started at the edge and added some hot glue and then a bit of the ruffle. I worked at about an inch at a time so the glue didn’t dry before I got to it.

I kept going around in a spiral from the outside in until I got to the center. Then I added these shell beads I found in a mason jar in the craft room (just trying to keep it real) and put them in the center. They were the perfect match for all of the clips.
