Tutorial: Flower Hair Clip

Super easy!

What you'll need:

* silk flower
* hair clip
* hot glue gun
* sand paper
* metal glue (optional)
* button or other decoration (optional)

The first thing that needs to be done is to take all of the hard plastic pieces off of the flower.  You'll end up with separate layers of the flower.

Next, glue the flower layers together with hot glue.  You may also choose to add some sort of decoration.  For my clip, a button was used.

This next part can be done a little differently.  It's best to sand the part of the metal clip that will be glued to the flower.  Sanding allows the glue to adhere better.  I used a special metal glue but using the hot glue gun should work just as well.

And that's it!  Now, you have a pretty floral hair accessory.   :)
