To make these gift hair clips with diamante flowers you will need: 1x white organza bag (7 x 9cm), 2x silver-plated hair clip blanks (4.8cm), 2x white flower with a diamante centre (approx. 2.8cm wide with a 10cm stem), 1x printed heart-shaped card (4.3cm wide) hobby glue, scissors and a pen.
STEP 1: Push the end of the flower stem through the cross-shaped hole in the upper part of the hair clip.
STEP 2: Pull the stem wire all the way through.This will bring the flower over the top of the hair clip.
STEP 3: Next, bend the stem wire at the back of the hair clip.
STEP 4: Slot the stem wire into the gap in between the back of the flower and the hair clip.
Then, start wrapping the wire around the short stem segment that is in between the back of the flower and the hair clip.
STEP 5: Keep wrapping the wire around the back of the flower until you run out of wire. Lift the petals as needed while working. Finally, tuck the end of the wire neatly under the flower.
STEP 6: Use the same technique to create the second hair clip.
STEP 7: Cut out the heart-shaped “Handmade by:” card, using scissors.
STEP 8: Write your name on the card.
STEP 9: Place the heart-shaped card as well the handmade hair clips inside the organza bag.
This is a really cute and simple DIY project. I am always fascinated with gifts that are handmade. Thanks for sharing!
