6. Fluff up the fabric stacks a bit.


Get creative with your flower centers! Beads, buttons, pom-poms, and sequins all look great. Use what you have!

Here are a few different options for flower centers.

8. Apply a small dot of jewelry glue to the back of the flowers and affix a bobby pin. Let dry.

9. For a cute and colorful way to package these hairpins as gifts, I cut paint chips in half and slid two hairpins onto the chips.
