More Than Just a Hair Clip

This fun (and easy to make) heart clip is great for more than just a hair decoration.

What You'll Need:
- Red Felt

- Hot Glue Gun

- Marker

- String/Strand of Red Sequins (got mine from Joann's in the ribbon section)

- Scissors

- Alligator clip



The How To:
- First draw (or trace) a heart onto the felt.

- Next cut out your heart.

-Now, take your glue gun and trace the outside of the heart with the glue.

- Then put the string of sequin's on the glue that is on the outter edge of the heart.

Photobucket

- When you have gone all around the outter edge, keep putting glue on the heart as your go, and spiral in as you go with the glue and sequin's.

Photobucket

- When you get to the middle of your heart, cut your sequin string and add a drop of glue to the end to help hold it in place and to help keep the end sequin from falling off.

- Now hot glue your gator clip (or whatever kind of clip you like) to the back side of the heart.

And that's it!

Here are some more examples of some fun ways to show off your cute heart!
