Last weekend while getting ready to go out to dinner with some friends. I thought my hair needed a little something extra. I decided to quickly make a little flower clip. It took me about 5 minutes, with taking pictures, and both boys were awake!
First you will need a few supplies. I had all of these on hand so it cost me nothing!
I always save all of my bobby pins each time I get an updo, so I never need to buy those. The satin fabric was from the lining of a dress that I shortened for a friend. And everything else was in my stash.
First you cut your satin to the size circles you like, I think the less perfect the better. Cut concentric circles, so that you will be able to see the layers, I cut 6.
Then you gently burn the edges. I like to use a candle, because it seems safer, and I never have been good at working lighters. If your circle catches on fire, that's okay just quickly burn them out.
Now you can start hot gluing the layers down. Just a small amount in the middle will do. Start with your biggest circle and go smaller. On top of your last circle, glue a little jewel or you could also hand sew some seed beads. That would be very cute, but might take more than 5 minutes, and when you are already running late...
After your flower is done, simply glue it to a bobby pin or even a clip. Mine was sloppy, but who will see?
Put it in your hair and you are ready to go!
Speaking of hair, I love doing my hair this way. I have been looking for cute ways to put up my hair, since it is always up anyway. I saw this hairstyle on I am Momma here me roar, and tried it. It looks great, keeps me cool, takes 5 minutes, and I can do it right out of the shower.

Saturday night after we got home, I did this heatless curls trick to my hair for church the next morning. And it looked great too. Love how blogs provide me with such great ideas!
