Flowers are SO popular these days! Wouldn’t it be so nice to have one that matched every outfit? I say let’s do it!
I’m going to show you how to make an interchangeable flower hair clip by placing flower petals in between two magnets. One magnet will be glued to a single prong clip and the other to a bottle cap. If you use strong magnets you will have no problem putting 10 petals in between your magnets.
I mixed and matched different styles and sizes of flowers.
In the flower above I used petals from the following flowers:
I finished the flower off by adding a Zebra Bottle Cap (glued to a magnet).
3/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon
Heat Sealing Tool, or Lighter
Super Strong Magnets
I got my magnets at my local craft store, they were actually called Super Strong Magnets.
The stronger ones are smaller and metal looking. The bigger black ones work, but not for as many petals.
First line your clip with your ribbon. Cut a piece of 3/8″ ribbon to 4 1/2″. Leave the bottom of the clip ribbon free.
Glue a petal to your lined clip, then glue a magnet onto your petal.
Putting the petal first just hides the magnet. I think it’s best to put the glue on the petal, NOT the magnet.
I used a super strong magnet and it was very attracted to the clip! It did make a small glue mess.
I used a small petal so that it wouldn’t be seen behind the flower.
In the picture above you can see my lined clip and the attached petal. My magnet is hiding but it is in the center of the flower.
Now glue a magnet to a bottle cap. To have different options for the flower center glue magnets to several bottle caps. Again put the glue on the bottle cap. (Not the magnet).
Make sure to glue the magnet the way that it will be attracted to the other magnet on your clip.
Now you are free to put whatever petals you want in between your clip and bottle cap.
For this flower I used five petals from a Zebra and Pink Gerbera Daisy.
Just Layer them on top of your clip.
Put your bottle cap magnet on top and your flower hair clip is ready to go!
I used a few more petals for this flower. This flower has petals from the folloing flowers:
I beg you to only look at the flowers in my hair. I just wanted to show you a few options.
Now you can make custom hair flowers to match any outfit! The great thing is you don’t have to glue a flower together! This could end up saving you a lot of money!
A girl has GOT to have options! I hope you give this a try and never wonder if you are going to have a matching accessory again!
