I truly love how they turned out and I use them often! Haha, I’ve made o few of these in different colors so I could match the earrings.

There’s no cheaper, easier, and more unique way to have accessories than making them ourselves.

A few people in some stores asked where I got them and I was so proud to say I made them myself LOL.

That’s the awesome part. Yes, we can definitely buy hairclips, there are cheap options but they are not unique. Also, we can have a lot of fun making hair accessories such as these fabric flower hair clips. 

How to Make Fabric Flower Hair Clips

These pretty fabric flower hair clips are so easy to make and are a perfect DIY Spring craft or night craft with kids or teens. They look great on their own or paired with other flowers as a part of an updo.

Supplies:

  • Plain hair clips – I love french barrettes but alligator clips can work too.
  • Scrapbooking fabric flowers, silk flowers, or your favorite fake flowers – usually found in craft stores.

Tools:

  • Hot glue Gun and glue sticks.
  • If you decide to make the flowers yourself you will also need scissors, needles and thread, buttons, etc. You’ll find a link to a tutorial later in the post.

Instructions:

1. First, clean well with a wet towel the hair clips in the top area where you are going to glue the flowers.

2. Apply hot glue generously all over the top of the hair clip.

3. Place the flowers in your favorite way and order.

4. You can even mix different colors and/or sizes. Alternating large flower with small flowers making the large one the center of the clip looks so cute too.

5. I used the same size and colors to match my cute fabric flower earrings.

That’s it, TADAAAAA!!!!

There you have your fabric flower hair clip ready to be used.

Easy right?

Then I made another one with the green fabric flowers so I can match my cute pair of green earrings.

Crafting Tips

* Mix and match! Use large flowers mixed with smaller flowers, different sizes and even different textures. Your creativity is the limit.

* I always work with what I have because what I make is mostly for my own use, my family’s, or small gifts. I don’t look for perfection, only that it looks good, that is low-budget and long-lasting solution. BUT if you plan on selling the items you make I recommend investing in the right tools and aiming for high-quality items.

* Although you can find the cutest fabric flowers in the scrapbooking section of your local craft store, you can alternatively make them yourself using scrap fabric or ribbons. Here’s a great tutorial to make flowers.

* You could alternatively create a felt strip layer on the fair clip first and glue the flowers to the felt instead of directly to the metal hair clip.

Frequently Asked Questions

What to buy to make homemade hair clips?

If you are completely new to accessory making you can start with only a few basic supplies and go from there. You will need hair clips (french barrettes or alligators) Glue, or a hot glue-gun, jewelry wire, small pliers (round, flat, bent nose pliers), and your mini decorative element (beads, pendants, etc) among other things.

What can I turn into hair clips?

Pretty much ANYTHING! small toys, wooden shapes, whatever strikes your fancy, and is small enough to wear in your hair clips! Places like party stores or the dollar store are great for small, fun things on the cheap.

What is a french barrette clip?

Also called French barrette (American English), hair clip, hair-slide or clasp (British English), is a clasp for holding the hair in place. It’s my personal favorite type of hair clip because it holds better. They are often made from metal or plastic and sometimes feature decorative fabric. In one type of barrette, a clasp is used to secure the barrette in place; the clasp opens when the two metal pieces at either side are pressed together.French barrete

How can you wear a hair clip?

There are so many ways to wear them But on my girl I usually use it:
– I make a half-up ponytail and attach the girl’s hair bows close to the elastic tie.
– Sometimes the same but to one side (I love this one)
– Sometimes I tie the half-up ponytail directly with the girl’s hair bows.
For myself, I love a half-up ponytail with only french barrettes or grabbing my whole hair in a bun and secure with the French barrette.

What glue is best to make bow hair clips?

In my experience, hot glue is the best. It hardens fast and in most cases, it won’t come off. But you are free to try and test other options.
