Ribbon Flower Hair Clips

| 43 Comments

So I have been on a little flower kick lately…believe me when I say there are more posts to come! This particular flower I made in celebration of St. Patrick’s day—due to the fact that my daughter does not have a wide selection of green apparel, I thought a green ribbon flower, to wear in her hair, would be perfect.

So let me show you how to make one! (I promise it is easy :-))

Step 1: First you need to cut a piece of ribbon. (you can also make lace flowers) It doesn’t matter how long, because you can make a flower as big and as full as you want (or as small). I think my ribbon was about 18″ long. (ish?) Then you need to do a basting stitch down one side. (This is the biggest stitches your sewing machine can do…if you didn’t know :-O )

Step 2: Now pull on one of your threads to gather your ribbon. Make sure to hang onto the thread on the opposite side so you don’t pull it completely out. Keep gathering until you like the way it looks. (oh pretty)

Step 3: Tie off your threads. And I highly recommend using fray check on the ends of your ribbon…so uh, they wont fray. If you don’t have fray check, you can also use clear nail polish.


Step 4: Now you need to cut out a felt circle. This is going to be for the back side of your flower. I traced the top of a vitamin lid for mine…but since your flower may be a different size— yours might need to be bigger or smaller.

Step 5: Working in a circular direction, hot glue your ribbon onto your felt circle. Start on the outside edge and work into the center.

Step 6: Now hot glue your button on! (don’t you just love glue guns!?!)

Step 7: You can skip this step entirely if you want to0…but I like to glue ribbon onto my hair clips (I think it looks a bit nicer.) You can cover the entire clip, or leave one side uncovered which will actually help it to stay in ultra fine hair— oh, and pardon the glue that is stuck to my thumbnail…

Step 8: Glue your hair clip onto the back of your flower like so:

You want the flat part of the clip to be against your  head.

And Voila! You are done!

    I’m not sure what size the ribbon was…7/8″ would probably be a good size though. I think you could probably make it using a lot of different sizes. :-) good luck. I’d love to see a picture of them if you get around to trying it!!!
