Polka Dot Shabby Flowers

Bulk shabby flowers are such a fun, popular trend right now.  These have taken it up a notch with the polka dots.  They are so seriously cute.  They have no backs so that you can attach them to an alligator clip, French clip, etc.  A lot of people make boutique headbands out of them too (we also have some shabby flowers attached to a headband for .75.  Check out our flower headband page.).  The polka dots just add so much fun to these.  Mix and match with solid colors to get just the look you want.  We have everything you need to make your own hair flower so get started today!

Patriotic Stacked Flower

Easy, fun red/white/blue 4th of July, patrtiotic flower clip!  This is so very easy and fun.  These themed flower clips would be great for Memorial Day, 4th of July 24th of July (Utah) and even Labor Day!  Plus the colors just go great together, don’t they?  Hair Flowers are so incredibly easy to make.  You will be so glad that you bought a bunch of our artificial fake flowers and rhinestones.  You can choose from Lilies, Daisies and Peonies.

Red/White/Blue Hair ClipsThis is a fun, fast thing to make with a group or just on your own. And there are lots of different variations. You can use many different colors and stack the petals in different ways for different looks. You can also add ribbons, tulle, or different centers. The possibilities are nearly endless!

You will need:

Bulk Flower Heads of your choice (I used a red and a white daisy with crystal center and a navy and royal blue lily with crystal center).

Needle and Thread (Not Shown–Optional, but highly recommended)

Glue Gun and Stick (Not Shown)

Directions:

Start by taking all of your flower heads apart. You can throw away the plastic stem pieces (or keep them if you can think of a use for them). I started by popping the stem off of the back with my finger, then it was relatively easy to take all of the pieces apart.

Once you have your petals all apart, start playing around with how you want them stacked so you can put your flower together. I ended up with a large white daisy petal, then a large red daisy petal, another large white daisy piece, a navy blue lily petal, a royal blue lily petal, a medium red daisy petal, and finally a small white daisy petal. But, maybe you prefer to show more red than white. Play around with it until you like the way it looks.

When you have them stacked in the order that you want them, line the center holes up together so that you can see through the entire center of your flower. This will ensure that your flower will look centered and straight.

Take your needle and thread and just use a tacking stitch to sew all of your petals together. Now, I said the needle and thread were optional. This is because I hot glued all of my petals together. And it worked great. BUT–I got a big ole blister on my finger tip! Umm..painful!

The petals are pretty thin. So pressing the hot glue with your fingers is a bit dangerous. In hindsight I would have sewn them together. That being said, you can use hot glue at your own risk. Although, craft glue or fabric glue would probably work as well. You just need to let it sit and dry longer.

Moving on–now that you have all of your petals secured together, just hot glue one of the rhinestone crystal embellishments back on to the center of your flower. Voila! Super cute and patriotic accessory!

Patriotic 4th of July Hair Flower

You can glue this to a pin, snap clip, alligator clip, headband, or almost any other accessory. You can sew it to a purse before gluing your center on. Again, lots of possibilities!  These make absolutely darling baby headbands.  Don’t forget that infant headbands make the outfit!

Have fun, and stay tuned for more fun craft tutorials here at Always Underpay!

Tutorial: Layered Spike Bow

I have to say, this is my favorite bow tutorial so far. I hadn’t really expected it to turn out so well, but I just love it. And now I get to teach all of you how to do it!

Layered Spike Bow

You will need:

Layered Spike Bow SuppliesRibbon pieces–measurement and qty purely depend on how big you want your bow and how many layers you’d like. I ended up with 4 layers. I didn’t use the lime green 5/8″ ribbon pictured.

Scissors

String

A Lighter

Directions:

Start by cutting your ribbon pieces down to the length that you want them. As I said above, the length you need depends totally on how you want your bow to look. My bow ended up at about 4.5″ wide. The Pink layer on bottom was cut at 5″ before trimming and sealing. Then I cut each layer a little bit smaller than the one under it. I didn’t use the lime green ribbon 5/8″ ribbon because I just thought there were enough layers without it.

Then, cut the ends how you like them to look. I like mine in V cuts. So that’s how I cut them except the 3/8″ swiss dot ribbon. I just angle cut that because it was too small.

This is how I V cut. Fold your ribbon in half, then cut from the fold down toward the corners on the end. Perfect V every time.

Now heat seal all of your ends. This takes some time, but don’t skip it unless you want your ribbon to fray. Just run a lighter really quickly over all of the V-cut ends. Don’t linger–you will start to burn the ribbon (speaking from experience :)).

Take the ribbons that will go on bottom and crease fold them in the center like this:

Still holding your first creased ribbon, do the second and third ones the same way–holding all of them tight.

Now, hold them together and wrap the string tightly around the center. Tie a knot in the string and trim loose ends. That’s your first layer!

Do this to all of your other ribbons putting them together as you see fit–no rules here.

Next, take your glue gun and glue the layers together in the center where the string is tied one by one, stacking them on top of one another.

Tie more string around the entire stack to help keep it from falling apart in some poor little girl’s hair.

Now just hot glue a small piece of coordinating 3/8″ ribbon around the center and heat seal the ends. Voila–super sweet layered spikey bow!
