Last fall I ordered several button jars from the Ribbon Retreat to create some Christmas crafts. I started playing around with some of the buttons and came up with this cute idea.
The button jars at The Ribbon Retreat are 5 oz. of beautifully coordinated buttons for only $5.99!
Button Hair Clip Tutorial
Remember you can get all of your supplies here at The Ribbon Retreat!
Before I begin, I create a mock-up of the design I will use to glue the buttons onto the felt circle.
Glue each of the buttons in the desired location.
I like to create a couple of layers, starting with larger buttons on the bottom and overlapping some of the buttons on the top layer for a whimsical effect.
Make sure you only glue two-thirds of the bottom layer of buttons to the felt.
This way you can trim around the buttons more easily.
Trim the felt away from the edges of the buttons so you can not see any felt from the top view.
Prepare to glue the prong clip to the felt piece.
I hold the clip open with a toothpick so glue does not seep through when I attach it to the clip.
And now you’ve made your cute Button Hair Clip!
I like to attach these clips to infant headbands, but I have also used them alone for my older daughters’ hair.
So order a few button jars and come up with beautiful designs for your Button Hair Clip!
