Heather and I have been working hard making all kinds of hair accessories for a craft show. And I was thinking why not blog about these fun fall hair clips. Perfect of Thanksgiving. These can even be a dollar store craft if you have the clips and hot glue on hand.
What you need are some fall colored gemstones, some fall silk leaves (you can find these anywhere even the dollar store) and then you need some hair clips. I used large 3 inch clips but you can use any size you would like.
Don't forget your handy dandy hot glue gun. (Heather and I never go to each others house without taking a hot glue gun. VERY TRUE!)
Felt, any color.
Cut 2 pieces of felt, 1 rectangle a little larger then your clip and one small, about a 1/4 the size of the bigger one.
Take the large piece and place it inside the clip. Then glue it in place.
Take the smaller piece of felt and place it on the under side of the wide end of the clip. Then glue it in place.
Trim the excess felt off leaving a small edge.
Chose your leaves and arrange them by hand on the clip first to see how you would like them to lay.
Glue them on one by one starting at the narrow end of the clip. I glued this first leaf about half way down the clip so the base of the leaf was in the middle of the clip.
Chose your gem stone and glue it to the end of the clip.
That is all you have to do. You will have a cute hair piece for Thanksgiving.
