DIY Day: Valentine's inspired Hair Accessories

There is no reason to inhibit yourself from expressing your love to someone. The words have a pure intention of kindness and seek to flatter - no harm in that. And while words communicate one's emotions, a gift allows expression of one's affection in a more obvious way.
This installment of our DIY Day is a little project inspired from one of our previous collections. These adorable Valentine's inspired hair clips look so cute!  A little present for your daughter, or for your daughter to give to her friends.

Step 1: Components

You will need:
  • 3 x 3 inches pieces of fine felt cloth (or any non-woven fabric). Colours of your choice
  • Hair clips
  • Scissors
  • Threads of contrasting colours 
  • Sewing needle 
  • Glue 
  • Heart-shaped stencil 

Step 2: Cutouts

Draw a heart shape over the felt cloth. You can use a stencil for a neat look, or fold the pieces to draw a slanted semi circle. 
Cut out the shape. 
Using the scissors, make a cut on one side of the heart shaped cloth, as shown in the picture

Step 3: Complete

Slide the hair clip through the cut, and close the pin.

Cover the top part of the pin using either of the following decorating techniques.

  • You can glue on top, a felt cloth of same colour, or use a thread of contrasting colour to sew the piece.
  • Cut out a smaller heart of a different coloured cloth and sew it on top
  • Use a base heart with jagged ends
  • Create a personalized design

An adorable gift for your adorable little girl
