How to Make Hair Flowers

Hello, everybody!!! My friend Krista showed me how to make hair flowers, so I thought I'd share it with you.
Have you seen hair flowers that are the latest style? Do you see them and think "Oh, that is SO cute!" or, "I wish I had one!" Well, today is YOUR lucky day. I'm going to teach you how to make hair flowers! It saves money and it's fun and easy.
To make these flowers, you will need: 1 glue gun, polyester fabric cut into different size circles (I use four circles, about 4 inches in diameter for the largest, then 3 inches, 2 inch and 1 inch), 1 burning candle, 1 box of hair clips, and beads(optional). First find a empty workspace for your materials and a spot to let your flowers dry. Second, find the color combinations that you like. Choose colors to match an outfit for a special occasion or for daily wear. Next, take your bottom layer (your biggest circle) of your flower and put it next to the flame of the candle. The edges should curve upward and get crinkly and black. Repeat with all of your circles. After you have burned the edges of every layer, glue the layers together with your hot glue gun. Glue the largest on the bottom, and add the rest, largest to smallest. After that, turn it over and glue one hairclip on the back of your flower. Finally, if you would like your flower to have a center, choose a bead to put in the center of your flower and hot glue gun it there. Before wearing, let the glue dry completely. The clip may stick when you want to open it, but if you push hard on the end curving upward it should open. Congratulations!!!! You have made a hair flower!
I like them because they're cute, fun, easy to make and cheap. Besides putting them in your hair, you can give them as gifts,make a bouquet out of them and clip them on apron or jumper straps or coat lapels.Have fun making more hair flowers!
PS I will post some pictures soon of me making hair flowers!
