Flower Clips


My little girl just loves me doing her she loves when I put flowers in her hair!  Recently we had a mommy/daughter day and went shopping, one of our stops was Hobby Lobby!

She loved all the different flowers, so I thought it would be fun to create a few clips for her hair, I made one last year and hadn't had a chance to create more.  Thought it would be fun to create some more and show how easy they are to make and how awesome they look with the shimmery paints!

Well it was pretty hard telling a little determined 2 year old she only could pick a few....she kept telling me "I love these too mommy!" 

This is what we ended up getting:
Plus I ended up digging in my stash and found a few others to use!

She was so excited to put them together!!

The cutie wanted to use my CI shimmer paints to make them pretty!  While I was painting the flowers she kept saying "So sparky"!!  I had to giggle to myself....too cute!

They are so simple to make:
I first painted all the flowers I wanted to use with the shimmery paints!

Then I added a little hot glue on one of them:

Quickly, smashed the two together:
I added a gem or brad on each of them.

Lastly, I ran a line of glue on the underside of the flower and quickly put the clip in the glue, but made sure to hold the clip open so that if didn't glue the clip shut. 

So here are the finished flowers:
I used "Light Purple" on the bottom left flower, "Pink Highlights" on the bottom right flower and "Blush" on the polka dot pink flower!

My favorite one, as I love yellow!!
I used "Sunshine" on the flowers!  I also used SS20 and SS30 Jeweled Inspirations in the center of the flowers!

Her favorite:
I used "Tutu Pink" on the zebra print flowers and "Coal" on the black flower and SS30 clear Jeweled Inspirations in the center.

Have a great day!
