Silk Flower Hair Clip tutorial

Surprise Me!

Lately I have been seeing darling skull caps for babies with beautiful large silk flower clips. I think these make perfect baby gifts —— and it is so easy to make!

How to make a silk flower clip

Supplies: metal clips, 1 large silk flower, plastic gem (or covered button) for center embellishment, hot glue

Remove the plastic piece that holds the flower together from the center of the flower.

Then you will have a stack of petals.

Glue petals back together with a drop of hot glue between each layer.

Sandwich petals until you have a flower you are happy with.

Add a gem or covered button to the center.

Cover hair clip with a piece of grosgrain ribbon and hot glue.

Hot glue a piece of the leaf to the bottom on the flower,

leaving a space for the clip to fit in.

Crochet a little hat. I used this Granny Skull Hat Pattern  designed by Chelle Grissam

Clip onto the hat and you have a darling hat!
