Not only is it fun to make custom brooches and hair clips, I think it can add so much to pull the whole look of an outfit together. I used a really simple style for the brooch on the embroidered dress; you can make one, too, in less than five minutes.
This style flower is popping up all over the place and it is SO easy, you should totally make one today. You just cut circles, fold then in fourths, and hot glue them onto a backing of felt. Four folded circles forms a full circle (see? you even get a tongue twister out of the deal!) Glue the sides of the halved circle in to the center for extra dimension like I did for the little flower below.
Top it off with a button or brad or whatever!
Layer “flowers” of varied sizes like I did for the brooch or pop a little single layer onto a hair clip.
You can also use one of these super cool two-for-ones that have a brooch pin and an alligator clip on the back.
And the part where I show you how cute they look in the hair? Well, my models were too busy loving on each other to give a proper head nod in my direction.
