Ruffled Shamrock Hair Clip {Tutorial}

Ruffled Shamrock Hair Clip {Tutorial}

Sharing is caring!

I have figured out that you can ruffle just about anything and so I ruffled a shamrock!  To be honest I had no idea how this would turn out.  It was one of those things that I “had in my head” for a few weeks and HAD to get out!   I think it turned out absolutely darling (of course the cute kid with her oh so cute “pose” helps too)!

Ruffled Shamrock Hair Clip

What you will need:

Green Ribbon (mine was from Hobby Lobby)

needle/ matching thread

cut a piece of craft foam into a clover shape (I got mine pre-cut from the Dollar tree)

Hot glue

Hair clip to glue on back or headband/ etc.

Directions: Take the Ribbon and sew a LONG line of thread through one side to make a long ruffle.  Once you think you have enough ruffle (it will take a lot) then start gluing it down by starting with the outline of the shamrock.

Once you are finished gluing the outer layer of ribbon- just fill in the rest with more ruffled ribbon until you are through.

At this point to make the ruffles look more like the shamrock I turned the shamrock upside down and tucked the outer layer of ruffles around the backside with the hot glue… this step is optional…

Now just put a clip or secure a headband to the back and it is ready to be worn!

My daughters are safe from any pinching this season! 😛  This really turned out adorable!

We like ruffles around here!  How about you?

Happy Creating!

I love the finished result! My 4 year old's fave colour is green! One thing I wish you could of done different, is to put more photos of the exact steps for me to follow. Love it though! :)
