DIY flower clip/brooch


Christmas is so near, just a couple more days! I wanted to share a do-it-yourself tutorial on how to make this poinsettia clip/brooch. I apologize that this is SO last minute. In hopes that maybe some of you may be doing some last minute Christmas shopping, you could pick up some of the items along your way. Although you could use any silk flower, the poinsettias will definitely add a bit of festivities to your look. Enjoy~

Materials needed: All these can be purchased at a craft store.
  • Poinsettia flower [silk]
  • Black felt
  • Hair clips 
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue or craft glue

Step 1: Detach flower from stem. Usually you can pull it out, if not, cut it.

Step 2: Cut a circle on the black felt to fit the bottom of the flower.

Step 3: Cut 2 small incisions in the middle of the circle felt. Place hair clip inside, like shown. 

Step 4: Use the hot glue [be careful!] or craft glue to secure the hair clip to the felt.

Step 5: Apply glue to the back side of felt and clip.

Step 6: Carefully and gently place the glued side of felt to the bottom side of the flower, and let dry.

VIOLA!
