I have dreams of rosette hairbands, flower clips, etc...I can't spend any money on that right now. But I realized that I have everything I need here to make a really basic floral bobby pin. Here are the two I came up with tonight.
- floral petals
- glue gun
- bobby pins
- tiny pieces of fabric (felt works really well, but I didn't have any)
- various beads and shiny thingies :)
First take several petals off of the stem. I took off the little plastic pieces in the middle as well.
Cut a small piece of fabric...about this size.
Dab a little hot glue on the fabric and attach the bobby pin.
While that dries, start stacking your petals together however is pleasing to you, carefully glueing the centers together.
Experiment with what you want to go into the center. I several single earrings that have lost their mate, and just detached them from the earring back.
I chose the first and second...they were cute. Then glue it to the center.
While that dries, cut another strip of fabric a little bit longer than the first one, and glue it to the backside of the flower.
Attach the two pieces of fabric together...and you are done.
Here is how it looks in my hair. No I did not fix my hair today, so it is just pulled back in a messy ponytail...but you get the idea.
Cuteness. Freeness. I am ready to make more with some other types of flowers and bead I have around the house!
