Today I’ll be sharing a fabric covered hair clips tutorial. I’ve seen a lot of cute hair clips floating around Pinterest, and tried (unsuccessfully) to make glitter covered clips in the past. After my glitter hair clip attempt I thought it would be easier, and hopefully look nicer, to cover clips in fabric instead. I love the way they turned out. I think they would make a great small Christmas gift, or dress up your holiday outfits.
-hot glue gun
-quilting batting scrap (for clips made with thin fabric)
*If using thick fabric (like pleather or velvet) skip to Step 3
Step 1: Cut a scrap of quilting batting about a half inch larger than the hair clip on all sides and hot glue the top of the clip onto the batting.
Step 2: Trim batting so it meets up with the edges of the clip top.
Step 3: Place fabric right side down and hair clip on top of the fabric, clip side up.
Step 4: Cut fabric about half an inch bigger than the clip on all sides.
Step 5: Hot glue along one long side of the clip and press the fabric around the clip onto the glue.
Step 6: Make sure the fabric is pulled tight and hot glue the second long side of the clip. Trim excess fabric if there is any.
Step 7: Glue the corners down to make the fabric on the ends into a triangle, fold the ends over and glue and you’re done!
