Hairclip / Brooch DIY


 
 
 
 
Hello to another fantastically easy DIY.  What you look at is a  hairclip that can be used as a brooch too. At first glance, it may appear ridiculous to have them both at the back and I thought that too. I believed that the brooch pin is going to get tangled in my hair, but surprisingly, it doesn't.
Don't you think it's great having 2 in 1? If you do, gather your supplies and let's make it.
 
Supplies:
1. a crocodile hairclip
2. a brooch pin
3. tulle / satin rosettes and crochet flowers (instructions given below)
4. beads
5. a felt piece
6. glue, sewing thread
 
 
 
To make the tulle and satin rosettes use this tutorial
To crochet the flowers follow this pattern
 
 
 
 
 
1. Take a strip of felt and glue it over the top of the clip to cover it lengthwise.
2. Cut out a round piece of felt and cover the upper part of the clip. Mark where the clip ends and cut it again to make a half moon shape - in my case it was way to bigger so I cut it out to the size I thought would be best for it.
3. Remember to slid it under the lower part of the clip.
4. Pin the two sides together (or not) and prepare to sew them. 
 
 
Using a sewing thread, I sewed the felt cover with the blanket stitch. And on the lower part sew the brooch pin.

Design the look of your new hairclip / brooch. Sew or glue the crochet flowers and the rosettes.
 
 

 
 Add beads for extra glam.
And that's it. Hope you like it!

 
 
 
 


Thank you for visiting!

I am glad you like it Rose! It is a great gift too. My mom constantly wears hairclips so I am making a few as a gift for her.

Thank you Kim. The jacket is my favorite. I bought it from Barcelona and every time I wear it, it reminds me od the fantastic time we had there.

Very pretty! I love how both the hairpin and the brooch pin are concealed no matter with one you use. How clever! Kudos!

Oh, I've made the very same kind. My mom loved crocheting those little things and was always giving me some. I made both barrettes and pins like yours! I also added things like a string of seed beads, buttons, and rhinestones. I only have one white one left, but seeing yours in such lovely colors makes me want to make more! Even though Mom has been gone 3 years now, I still have some of those little flowers!

Little Treasures said...

That's wonderful Debby! What lovely reminder to have as a keepsake!

Thank you for making this Monday special Jes!
