Guess what I discovered, whereas thrift purchasing yesterday! A tiny story tucked right into a nook of a road within the busiest market of Bombay. It had the prettiest synthetic flowers in all of the potential sizes, varieties and hues. And I’ll admit I went just a little bit loopy. I picked out a complete bunch of designs, so that you’re going to be flooded with floral DIYs over the subsequent few weeks. However for now, we’re going to start out with a straightforward DIY tutorial – How To Make Flower Hair Clips in 10 minutes or much less!
Time taken: 3-5 minutes per flower hair clip
- Plain Hair Clips with a flat prime
- Small synthetic flowers (I acquired roses in 2 colors and a combined form in maroon)
- Glue gun
You wish to use a glue gun for this hair clip DIY, as all different sort of adhesives received’t maintain the flower firmly or might keep on with your hair.
Let’s begin with the better form. The roses for these hair clips had been a extremely good dimension, so I felt like one piece per clip is sufficient. Nonetheless, if you happen to like you possibly can add extra flowers. Simply watch out that your flowers dont get smushed up and you’ll simply use the clip.
All it is advisable to do is, apply a thick line of scorching glue on the again of the rose and paste it on the closed nook of your hair clip. Press the flower and maintain for a number of seconds whereas the glue dries. As soon as it has dried, jiggle the pin up and all the way down to see if it falls.
If it strikes, which means the flower can fall off. Through which case, you possibly can add a tiny drop of glue the place the flower is transferring and safe it.
For the second sort of flowers, I used these small flowers with little stems. Now, if we attempt to paste the flowers straight, the stems are going to poke out and the flower can fall off. So, earlier than you begin it’s best to flatten out the stem within the again.
This trick works for many synthetic flowers – maintain the flower, with all of the petals folded in, between your fingers, with solely the stem standing out. Maintain the stem close to the tip of a candle flame. The warmth will let the stem soften barely. This actually takes one second. As quickly as that second has handed, press the stem towards a floor. This may flatten out the stem fully.
Watch out whereas doing this. Don’t burn your fingers or let the petals contact the flame.
As soon as the flowers are prepared, apply just a little scorching glue on the folded a part of your hair clip and paste the flowers on prime. Repeat the steps for the opposite facet of the clip. I made a complete bunch of those flower hair clips. Some with two flowers and a few with 4.
