How cool is this? Do you have an F.Y.E. near you?

How to Make Frugal Hair Flowers

Check out this great, frugal craft from our guest blogger, SavvySavingCouple!

0071 300x225 How To Make Frugal Hair Flowers

My whole life I have always been a very frugal, and crafty person. I could take magazines, and make beads, turn an old shirt into a doll outfit-the list goes on. Roughly five years ago when I had my first daughter I was so excited about putting her in dresses, and styling her hair that I could not wait to buy her some pretty bows & hair flowers. After a good search online, and in stores I came to the conclusion that if my little girl was going to have matching hair accessories I’d have to make them myself because there was no way I could afford to spend between $6-$15 dollars on them! Multiplying that cost by the number of dresses and pretty outfits she has would equal one very broke mommy!
After several trips to craft stores I realized that it would be cheaper for me to buy ribbon, and full stem artificial flowers to make my own hair accessories. After several trial and error bows, and flowers I was finally able to master the art of homemade hair goodies. I specialize in making my girl’s hair clippies, and flowers. I will make another post on how to make hair clippies at a later date because today is all about the flower.
As I mentioned I found it to be in my best interest to buy full stem flowers at stores like Michael’s when they are on sale. I really love daisies, and Gerberas so those are what I usually use. Sure, I could buy already clipped almost ready to assemble flowers, but you are paying for the convenience so it is cheaper to just buy the stems that you like. I have made my daughter over 20 different hair flowers, and have never spent over $1.50 total on each one! Using 40% off coupons, and matching them to floral deals yields the best deals!

005 300x225 How To Make Frugal Hair Flowers

Ok so now onto the construction part. Below are the materials you will need:
A clean surface, and hands
A glue stick (costs pennies)
A hot glue gun (anywhere between $4.95 and up * a good investment)
Floral Stems of your choice (price varies)
A sharp Pair of scissors (be careful)
An alligator Clip (costs pennies when bought in bulk-I buy mine online)
Embellishments for the center, or you could just use the original flower middle. (You can find gems and such at crafts stores-remember to use your coupons)
Step 1-Put a Glue stick in your glue gun, and let it heat up on a safe area.

Step 2-Gentle clip the flower off the stem as close to the backing as possible

Step 3- Carefully pull apart each flower layer (there may be up to 10)
Step 4- Starting with the largest petal place a small amount of hot glue in the center-*Do not use the plastic flower backing you can discard that!
Step 5-Repeat the above step gluing each layer from largest to smallest on top of one another

Step 6- After you entire flower is glued decide what you want in the middle-maybe the original center, or a rhinestone

Step 7- Your Flower is now complete -you may now glue it onto the alligator clip. Put some glue on the back of the flower, and firmly press it onto the clip
Step 8- Make sure it is held together strongly, now stand back, and admire your creation.
**This may seem like a lot of work, but it only takes about 2 minutes to complete, and the choices, and color/style options are endless icon smile How To Make Frugal Hair Flowers You could also turn these into magnets, & brooches.
