There's no such thing as too many hair accessories for your little one, right? Well today I wanted to share my good find that turned into a great DIY project! I absolutely love the felt bow trend but I am not yet brave enough to make my own and I don't want to spend $5 for one tiny little flower or bow so until now I have just window shopped for them.
This was a lucky find! I found these cute bows and flowers in the $1 check out line bins at Michaels. You heard correctly, $1 for each bundle!
I am a sucker for a checkout line deal but this one was one I could not pass up and I think I got one of each color! (how could I not ?!)
So let me show you how easy these are! Mine took me about 30 minutes to do all of them and now miss Josie has 24 new hair bows! (she is much less excited than I am)
To start you will want to get something to fasten them onto. My baby has a ton of hair so I chose to use double pronged clips (sally's) rather than headbands but those would be adorable as well! I also recommend getting an 8x10 sheet of felt from the craft store as well (these are under $1).
What you need:
Felt Flowers or bows
Extra Felt (I used grey and white)
Single or Double Pronged clips
First, I wanted to line the clip to make it hold better in the hair as well as give the flower or bow more of a surface to grip. I did this by cutting out a piece of felt that fit between the 2 sides and ran along the top of the clip as well.
I found it fastest to fold the felt over clipping the clips along it and then cutting in between rather than individually measuring each one out.
After I did that I took them off of the felt and put glue along the whole strip and inserting the clip as far as it went and then folding the rest over the top of the clip sandwiching the top inside.
After that has set until cooled (by the time you do them all the first ones are ready to use) all you need to do is use a small amount of glue on the top of the clip and attach the flower or bow!
That's all there is to it! And now you have adorable clips for your cute little one!
These come out to about $.39 each! I like that price!
asking this new little sitter and almost crawler to be still was nearly impossible today!
As always I love your feedback! Let me know how it goes for you and even share your pictures with me!!
