Hey There! I’m Joette from the Bowdabra Design team and today I’ve got a fun summer tip from the florist DIY for you. Do you love spending time at the beach or lake and want a simple hair style that is easy to maintain? Maybe you are going to a party or event and want to add some pizazz to your look. We’ve got you covered with this stylish floral claw hair clip!
In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to create your own festive floral claw hair clip using Dollar Tree lei’s and Mini Bowdabra. Trust me, it’s easier than you think! So whether you’re a seasoned crafter or just starting out, grab your materials and let’s get started.
Small bead with a hole through the center per flower
First, deconstruct your dollar tree large lei petals. Now, cut out one sections of each of the large petals. Use the lighter to lightly singe the fraying edges.
Next, take a length of Bowdabra bow wire, fold it in half and place it in the Mini Bowdabra. Now place the larger lei petals one at a time in the Mini Bowdabra, rotating the cut out sections. Scrunch everything down.
Then, add the smaller petals as you did with the larger ones. It is not necessary to singe the edges or cut out sections of these petals. Thread the loose ends of the wires through the loop and pull tight while the bow is still in the Bowdabra. Remove from the Bowdabra and turn to the back, separate the ends and tie a knot. Bring the wires back to the front and thread on the bead. Turn to the back and tie a couple of knots.
Use the excess wire to securely tie your flower to the claw hair clip. Fluff and shape your flower. You have a lovely floral claw hair clip that will be sure to turn heads!
