I only had one of these flower clips...and my darling daughter got to wear it in this family photo shoot.  Doesn't she looks so cute with her little missing teeth!?  

I have such happy memories of my kids at this age.

However, some how in the middle of the photo shoot, this is how my daughter ended up!  Flower clip gone--gone forever!  Ugh, we searched the park and checked the bathroom, but to no avail.  

Such a shame.  I said goodbye to my flower wearing days that day.

Um, until now!  I found a gorgeous bunch of the same flowers at the dollar store this year.   

I love wearing a bright pink flower in my hair!  I always did when my kids were younger when we went to a public swimming pool...I figured it would make me easier to spot while they played.  

Since I am allergic to real flowers, silks are a great choice.  These ones are my favorite ever.  What kind of flower do you think this is?


Supplies Needed for Flower Hair Clip:

  • Silk Flowers
  • Brad for paper fastening
  • Hot Glue/gun
  • Alligator hair clip
  • 15 minutes

Step 1: Pull Flower Apart


Begin by removing the plastic backing of the silk flower.

Disassemble the layers, but lay them out in the order they are removed so it can be easily reassembled.

Pull the silk flower apart in layers and keep track of the order to put it together again.


Step 2: Fastener


Place the paper fastener brad in the center of the flower.

Then layer on the different layers of the flower, right onto the brad.

Step 3: Hot Glue Clip


Then put hot glue on the top of the alligator clip and press it on the backside of the flower, covering the brad. 

Then let the hot glue cool completely.
