I was invited to a really, really fun and REALLY, REALLY girly party the other day. My friend Misty had Scentsy and those absolutely adorable crocheted beanie/headbands with all the flower clip accessories. They had a bunch of super cute newsboy caps, too. It was all so girly and I was so happy to be part of something so dang feminine since my life usually consists of dirty boys and rough and tumble sports. Not that I would trade it! It's just a nice addition.
So, after I bought two of those must-have flowers and four headbands, and spent a grand total of $31.95, I had a touch of buyer's remorse. I ALWAYS get buyer's remorse. I love a bargain, though, and it lessens the regret significantly. So I went to Robert's with the intention of making my own flower clips. Like the tutu attempt, they may not turn out as cute, but they are good enough since the price is right.
MATERIALS NEEDED FOR THIS PROJECT:
• Assorted colors and sizes of craft flowers.
• Alligator clips - I got mine at Wal-Mart, but they are a little too bulky. Look for the flattest clip you can find.
• Buttons, brads or other flat embellishments for the center
STEP ONE: Choose and layer your flowers
STEP TWO: Glue or Brad together
STEP THREE: Glue to alligator clip
And you're done! Super cute. We (my two older boys helped) made twelve of these adorable accessories.
