Flower Clippies!

The other day I was reading one of my favorite blogs, The Crafty Charlestonian, and she had a DIY on making flower clippies/headbands. For any of you that know my little girl in real life, you know she is the girliest. child. EVER! No lie. So when I saw how easy they were to make, I knew I had to hook my girl up! (Because let's be honest, there was no way I was going to pay $12 for one of these things no matter how cute they are!)

So I went to my local Walmart to get some silk flowers ($3 for 7 blooms) because all the ones at Hobby Lobby were too expensive ($5 for 6 blooms) and I didn't like the colors they had. I opted for pink carnations since that's pretty much the only color my child wears. Anyway, I grabbed those and the little jewels ($1.27 for a little bag) and I was on my way. I already had the clips at home since I make all of Kate's bows too. 

These were seriously the easiest things I've ever made! You can get to Elizabeth's DIY instructions here. Tell her I sent you! And without further ado, here is my finished product!

Cute, right? This is actually the one I made for my niece. The only difference is that Kate's has a light pink jewel in the middle. And here is my darling child modeling her new favorite hair accessory!
Yep, she loves it! (Please pay no attention to her dirty daycare hair. It wasn't bath time yet!) Anyway, go give Elizabeth a shout and tell her that you love her DIYs, because I sure do! Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. Awwww! Sooo cute! And thanks for all the props!

  2. Cute and you know what makes it cuter? The fact that you whipped it up at home!!
