Fabric flowers are so popular, and this Ruffle Flower Hair Clip is so easy to make. You can make one for every outfit in so little time. Check out this wonderful tutorial!


Hi, I’m Jessica from Mom 4 Real. I am so excited to share one of the easiest hair accessories that I have ever made! I have a little girl that is outgrowing hair bows and ribbons, so I have been trying to come up with some cute accessories for her.

Are you ready for a sweet little Ruffle Flower Hair Clip?

~ Ruffle Flower Hair Clip Tutorial ~

This little flower is so simple, I may make one to match each and every outfit Kate owns.

For this flower, I used Baby Pink Moda Dottie fabric, white 1/8″ grosgrain ribbon, an alligator clip, and white thread.

Cut a strip of fabric and fold it together, wrong sides together.

I cut a strip of fabric 5 inches X 36 inches.  Fold it in half lengthwise wrong sides together.

Start to sew a ruffle down the edge of the raw side.

Start to sew your ruffle using my Tutorial on Sewing a Ruffle down the side where the two edges come together. If you are wondering if you can do this by hand, you of course can! Just stitch with a needle and thread down the side and then scrunch of your fabric.

Your finished ruffle.

Now you have your ruffle.

Start rolling in one edge of the ruffle and secure it with glue.

Roll in the edge of one end of the ruffle and secure with a dab of hot glue.

Continue rolling and securing with hot glue. When you get to the end finish the end by securing with hot glue.

Then start rolling, securing with hot glue along the way.  When you get to the end, just secure with hot glue.

Glue a circle of felt to the back.

Flip your flower over and hot glue a piece of felt or fabric on the back.

Add a lined clip to finish it off.

Now take an alligator clip (I like to cover mine with ribbon), and hot glue it onto the felt. You can glue it on top or sandwich the top of the clip in between the felt and the flower for an extra hold. The bottom of the clip will stick out for clipping.

All done! Super cute ruffled flower hair clip!

Doesn’t it look so sweet tucked above her ponytail?
