Have you seen these cute flower clips and head bands at boutiques and esty pages. They are cute but rather pricey! So today I am going to show you how to make your very own for under $1.00. At my daughters 7th birthday party we let the girls make these and take them home. They had a blast, it as a stylish and “thrifty” party favor!
(If you are not able to view the video click here)
To make these you will need ( got most the supplies at my local dollar store)
- Hair clips (came 15 in a package for $1)
- Stretchy Head Bands (came 6 in a package for $1)
- Flowers on the stem, but pull them off ( each stem was $1 and gave me 10-30 flower pieces depending on the stem) Make sure you buy a few different sizes and colors.
- Brads or paper fasteners ( get them at a craft store or office supple store… a few cents each)
Start off by taking your flowers off the stem, then taking the green packing off and pulling the plastic flower middle out.
Now layer the flowers as you like… you can add as many as you want. I like to add 5-7 on each, start with the biggest and work you way down to the smallest.
Take your brad and poke it into the hole in each of the flowers.
Once you get it threw all the flowers, attach it to the flower clip by spreading the legs apart ( as seen in photo).
You can now wear it as a clip, or attach it to a stretchy head band.
You can also take these apart and mix and match them as needed to match your different outfits!
Hope you enjoy these… share this with all your thrifty friends!
They make great gifts for friends or nieces!
