anyways, i don't happen to prefer franks, but... handmade silk flowers? oh my, yes--i put those on everything!!
here's what you'll need...
i buy my silk fabric at hobby lobby or joann's. it's so cheap--$2.49/yd and and comes in tons and tons of colors! you really only need about a 1/4 yard so this is a really cheap craft too!
i like to use candles in little jars for the singeing because you can pretty much just rest the silk circles on the edge of the jar and it curls right up.
~take your scissors and thread and needle. you want to secure the beads onto your flower very well so they don't fall off and end up in tiny mouths! so thread the needle, knot the end and begin to sew through all the layers of your flower. put the bead onto your needle and sew it through twice to secure. take your next bead(s) and follow the same step. knot off when you're done! sometimes i also use a little hot glue to make sure the petals stay where i want them!
~you will fold over felt on either end of your clip, securing with hot glue so that your clip will remain stable.
~last step--hot glue your flower to the clip and you're done!!viola!
beautiful hair clips in less than 30 minutes and for less than $2 each!! can't beat that!
