5 minutes is all!

Here is the thing about me that I really really hate! I go to the store and I see something that I LOVE. I want to buy it but then I look at the price tag and I just can't! I then say to myself oh I could make that and then I rarely do. Well anyways I have been meaning to make my girlys some hair accessories for awhile and I just haven't. Yesterday my friend Lindsey and I made some cute flower clips and it got me in the mood to make some more, so today I pulled out my scraps and my glue gun and I just started. I did the first one in 5 minutes and thought why haven't I made these before now.

So here is an easy peasy 5 min hair clip tutorial.Get your supplies out, I used crushed velvet, a lace type thing, and then some beads from a broken necklace that I had.

I cut two flower shapes from the velvet, and then a random circular shape from the lace.

Layer the velvet and hot glue them together, then kind of scrunch the lace and glue it on top of the velvet, and last glue the beads on in the middle.

I always put a felt circle on the back before gluing on the hair clip, I don't really know why I do this, I guess it might sturdy the clip a little bit more but that is just how I have always seen them done.
Then I hot clue my alligator clips to the back. You can buy these clips at any craft store, or you can go to Sally Beauty and buy a box of 500 for like $5.00 (thanks Kristie! for that piece of info!)
And five minutes later you have a new hair clip for your honey bunny!

Here are a few more that I did, I feel like I went shopping and without spending a dime!

Oh all the clips are really cute. I'll have to look to see if they have any of those clips at the stores.
