  • How to make a flower hair clip. Flower Hair Accessories - Step 1
    Step 1

    First, get your piece of felt that you wish to use. You won't need much! Also, grab a piece of paper and cut out a small triangle.

    Get a piece of chalk and draw around your triangle as many times as you like, each triangle is a petal. I did 6 triangles. I prefer to use chalk as it rubs out easily whereas pen smudges and often doesn't wash away.

    While the glue is wet, take your hair grip/slide (whatever you wish to call it) and gently pull it so it makes a 'V' shape and only one part of the grip will be stuck. Stick the bumpy or zig-zag side so you are able to put it in your hair.
