I’ve been having fun creating flower bobby pins for my girls’ hair. They are quite easy to make and my girls like wearing them. That’s a great combination.
My girls wearing these flower bobby pins. Even though there are several colors to choose from, all of them chose pink. Why did I make other colors?
If you’re interested in making these flower bobby pins, I have a simple tutorial.
Felt fabric (any colors you want)
Follow the above photo from left to right, starting from row 1 to 3.
Step 1: Cut a square that is approximately 2″ x 2″. This is the size I went for but you can decide on any size.
Step 2: Cut the edges of the square to make a circle.
Step 3: Once you have the circle, start cutting from the outer edge of the circle in a spiral format all the way to the inner circle.
Steps 4 & 5: Start rolling the cut circle from the outer edge. Keep rolling and you’ll begin to see a flower forming.
Step 6: A perfectly formed flower.
Step 7: Flip the flower over and open the small circular flap. Apply a dab of glue to the bottom of the flower and close the flap down.
Step 8: Cut a small circle from another piece of felt. The circle should roughly be the same size as the bottom of the flower. My circle was cut from a 1″x1″ square.
Step 9: Slip the circle in between the bobby pin. Apply glue on the top side of the circle where the ridges of the bobby pin run.
Step 10: Put the flower on the circle and squish it a little to make sure the flower is adhered.
Tada! You’re done and you have a beautiful flower bobbin pin ready for your girl to wear. My boys enjoyed helping me make these pins that they made more than I had originally intended. Now we have a lot of flower pins of various colors. I think it’s time to share some of these lovelies with friends.
