DIY Everywhere
1. Take the three small pieces of violet felt and arrange them so they are layered on top of one another.
2. Cut a small scalloped pattern with the scissors lengthwise through them. Each piece will have a row of about 6 scallops.
3. Take a piece of green floral wire, about 6-inches-long and cut it in half with the needle-nosed cutting tool.
4. Take one of the scalloped pieces of felt and apply hot glue to the scallop at one end of the piece.
5. Wrap the glued end tightly around the end of one of the pieces of floral wire, with the scallops facing upward.
6. Apply more glue in a short line along the bottom of the scalloped felt.
7. Continue wrapping the felt around the floral wire, but going in a downward direction.
8. Repeat steps 6-7 until all of the small scalloped felt pieces are attached to the floral wire.
9. Wrap the other two scalloped pieces of felt to the floral wire as above.
10. There will be a small section of the wire that will still be exposed when you finish.
11. Take the small piece of light green felt, fold it in half, and cut out a small leaf shape. Since the felt is folded, you will have two leaves.
12. Apply a dot of hot glue to the bottom of each leaf.
13. Wrap the first one around the wire in the same way as the scalloped paper, but with the top point of the leaf oriented upward. Place the next leaf underneath that one.
14. The end of the piece will now have a very little bit of exposed wire showing.
15. Repeat steps 4-14 and cover the other piece of wire with the violet and green felt.
16. Apply glue to the front of the alligator clip.
17. Attach the green ends of each wire piece to the clip, so they are directly facing each other.
18. After the glue dries completely, the flower hair clip can be worn.
Use this pretty clip to create a quick up-do.
