Simple Boutique Flower Hair Clip With Feathers and Rhinestone Tutorial

Make this boutique feather flower clip in quick easy steps!
 Start with a singed pre-made flower.  This white satin and organza flower is available in my Etsy shop.
You will need:
Glue Gun
Alligator Clip
Feathers (found mine in the silk flower section of the craft store)
Ribbon
Lighter/Candle
Fancy Flower Center-Button or Beads
 Cut a 4.5 inch piece of 3/8 ribbon and heat seal the edges with your flame.
Hot glue to your alligator clip.
This length only makes the clip partially lined. I find them much easier to slip into hair that way.
 Pull back the 2 bottom layers of sating on my flower.
Just squeeze out a dab of hot glue in the center and place the ends of your feather.
 Putting the flower between the satin layers eliminates the need for felt backing.
Glue or sew your flower center on the front at this point.
Now glue the ribbon lined clip to the back. And keep in mind at this point if you are going to prefer to have it worn on the right or left side and place clip accordingly.
And your done!
Slip into hair, in a crochet hat or interchangeable headband.
A boutique hair clip that you have the control of designing.
