St. Patrick's Day is almost here and we are loving this quick and easy DIY hair clip! Follow along below with our easy step-by-step instructions to make one for yourself!
- Green felt
- Cardboard and pen
- Alligator hair clip
- Green 3/8" wide ribbon
- Hot glue gun
- Needle and green thread
Let's Get Started!
Create a clover leaf template from card stock by drawing your leaf shape, about 1"x1" onto your paper and cutting it out.
Next, trace your leaf onto your felt four times and cut them out.
They should look something like this!
Take each leaf and using your needle and matching color thread, weave under, over, under, and back over through the bottom edge of your leaf.
Do this to all four leaves on the same thread.
Pro Tip: Connect the first and last leaf to make the next step easier, shown below!
Push all of the leaves towards the first leaf as tight as you can.
Then, tie a knot in the back to secure the leaves together.
Now grab your alligator hair clip!
Cut a piece of 3/8" grosgrain, about 3" long and use a lighter to heat seal the ends. Using your hot glue gun, adhere the ribbon onto the clip, wrapping it around to the underside.
Now, add a generous dot of hot glue to the top of your clip place your finished felt clover on top.
Make sure to hold it there for a few seconds to completely secure it.
And you're done!
