DIY-Flower Clips

 To make the flower clips that I previously mentioned on this post you will need a few things first a hot glue gun I purchased mine for $2.47 at WalMart and the glue sticks were the same price for 30. 

You will also need some fake flowers just pick out your favorite ones I believe the ones I picked ranged from $2.00 to $3.00 the Walmart here doesn't have a very big craft section, and we do not have any craft stores. For this DIY I will be using the red flower in the picture. 
 Also needed are some rhinestones or any kind of decoration you would like for the middle. I bought these acrylic jewels which were kind of small so instead of just using one I clustered them together.

 You will also need some clips. I prefer these clips that latch I think I got 4 clips for $3.00. I like these because they stay in the princesses hair without me having to do a whole bunch to it.

Step by Step instructions
1.) Take your flower and remove the stem on mine I had to remove each layer from the flower because there were plastics pieces through out it on the orange one I did this step was not necessary until i started gluing them to the clip.

2.) I glued a piece of ribbon on to the clip which is not necessary with this particular flower as it is big enough to cover the entire clip

 3.) Start by gluing the biggest petal from the flower on the clip and work your way up from the bottom of the flower to the top.

4.) Glue the rhinestone or stones in the center of the flower, and you have your own custom flower clip.
I think I spent a total of $20.00 on this project and I'm getting 4 custom flower clips out of the deal so I think that's pretty good considering we can't get to many hair accessories where I live. I would love to be able to take credit for this but honestly I would have never thought about it if it wasn't for Nikki here's the original post that she linked me to, I really appreciate this and I'm happy that I'm able to share this with all my readers.
