How to Make Flower Hairpins for the Holidays!comments (5) November 27th, 2008
If you pay any attention to the trends, hair accessories are still hot, hot, hot. And they make great holiday gifts.
This year has been hard on me (and everyone else!) financially, so I have been challenging myself to make holiday projects that use up some of my scraps and crafty bits. I was talking to a few other crafty ladies recently, and we all admitted that we don't really need to buy new craft supplies, well, ever, so I am trying to be creative with what I have. This is an easy and inexpensive project that's sure to please lots of ladies on your holiday gift list.
What you'll need:
- Small scraps of fabric
- Water-soluble fabric pen
- Fabric scissors
- Thread and sharps needle
- Pom-pom, needle-felted ball, sequin, or bead for the flower center
- E600 or other permanent adhesive
- Bobby pin
- Paint chips
1. Using a spool of thread as your circle template, trace circles onto fabric with a water-soluble fabric pen. You are going to want 14 circles per flower.
2. Stack the fabric circles in piles of 14. The stacks shouldn't be perfect so that little bits of the various patterns peak out.
After you make this project, show off your work to other members!
