Supplies:

  • Lace or trim
  • Matching craft felt
  • Bobby pin
  • Scissors
  • Glue Gun
  • Needle and thread

alt

With you needle and thread, start making a wide, loose running stitch across the bottom of the lace

alt

After a few inches pull on the string. The lace will start to bunch up like so. Decide how long/large you want your flower and cut the lace accordingly

alt

Gather the ends together and sew them together

alt

Pinch together the frayed ends of the lace, fold them over twice, and hand stitch a simple hem

alt

This is what your flower should look like at this point (pretty, right?)

alt

Cut a small piece of felt and hot glue it to the back of the flower where the ends meet

alt

Cut another piece of felt in a similar shape. Put it through the middle of the bobby pin and then hot glue that on top of the first piece of felt

alt

Let dry completely before putting the bobby pin flower in your hair.
