I have showed you guys how to make these cute little Felt Flowers in several posts before, but today I thought I’d show you just how easy it is to create these Felt Flower Hair Clips.  They are perfect little accessories for your little ladies, for gifts, or to add to a cute tote.
 
Supplies:
 
*  Felt {I use the 8.5 x 11″ sheets from craft stores}
*  Fabric Scissors
*  Glue Gun
*  Alligator Clips 
 
I began by cutting three strips of felt for my hair clips.  You can do as many flowers per clip as you like, 1 or 3 per clip is my preferred look.  My strips were 11″ long, if you’d like bigger flowers you will need to purchase felt by the yard.  If you do use the 11″ sheets of felt they will create a 2″ diameter flower.  For smaller flowers cut shorter strips.  I cut my three strips in to different widths, my largest is 2″ wide and I just taper the width down from there.

Using my glue gun I place a line of glue all the way across the longest side of my felt {only place the glue along one edge of the felt}.  Then I folded the other edge to meet the edge with the glue.  Using my fabric scissors I cut all the way across the felt strip on the edge that does not have glue.  I like to make my cuts 1/4″ apart, but on my smaller flowers I like to cut a little closer.

Once I finished all my cuts I grabbed my glue gun and placed a small amount of glue on one end and began rolling my flower.  Place a bead of glue as you go to keep your flower together.
