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!
