our “lucky” bobby pins

It has been a while since I have crafted any hair pretties for my daughter, so I whipped up these little clovers the other day. And when I say whipped, I mean I cut out some felt, made a four leaf clover, thought I liked it, cut out lots more, started to assemble, hated them, and started all over (3 times) until I finally got the finished product I envisioned. I am sharing the finished product with you.


Once I got to this spot, they were really fast and easy, I swear!

You will need Green felt (not a lot, unless you are going to hate your finished product then restart like I did), hot glue, and bobby pins. And rhinestone pretties if you so desire.


Cut your felt into small circles, about 1 1/2 to 2 inches. I did not use a template, just cut away.


Make little slits to create four “leaves” and snip a little to round the edges.


Put a dab of hot glue in the center and pinch it all together to create little folds in each “leaf”.


Slip a (very) small circle of felt into the end of the bobby pin.


Put a dab of glue on the felt and stick on your clover.


Done! I did 7 of each color. Seven is Lucky.

This particular hairstyle is inspired by Moira’s favorite movie, Rapunzel, in which the princess with the long, flowing, blonde hair has her locks braided and decked with little flowers.
