How To Make Floral Hair Accessories

Updated on March 28, 2014

Floral accessories accentuate hairstyles and can pep up even the simplest ponytail. I've noticed recently that the going price locally is approximately $3 to $5 for the average floral hair clip or headband with a rhinestone center and realized they could likely be home crafted for much less. I opted to purchase a few bunches of different faux flowers at $3 per bunch, some $1 packs of elastic headbands and other materials I already had on hand. I determined that my investment was less than $1.50 per finished piece, plus approximately four minutes each to make, and I could design them any way I liked!

List of Materials

  • Faux floral bushes
  • Hot glue gun
  • Hot glue sticks
  • Felt cut into 3" strips
  • Metal hair clips
  • Elastic headbands
  • Rhinestones, pearl beads, other accessories

Instructions

  1. Heat up the glue gun.
  2. Arrange all materials at your work space while glue heats.
  3. Disassemble the flowers, one at a time, by removing them from the greenery stems.
  4. Layer the flowers upside-down with the largest petal on top, wrong-side up.
  5. (For hair clips) Glue one piece of felt to the top prong of the clip and let dry.
    (For headbands) Glue one piece of felt to the sewn-together portion of the headband and let dry.
  6. Begin gluing the flower petals to the clip/headband, wrong-side down and largest first, using a circle of glue in the center of each petal and layering one on top of the other.
  7. Once all layers are dry and secure, add decorative accessories of choice to complete the piece.

Fun & Festive Tips

  • Use solid flowers or mix and match petals from a variety of flowers for even more unique looks!
  • Seek out unconventional blingy accessories in the scrapbooking aisle of your craft store.
  • These decorative little hair accessories make wonderful gifts for girls of all ages and sell great at craft shows.
