Today I want to share an easy little project that should delight the little girls in your life. These pumpkin hair clips are the kind of project you can do in front of the TV one night while you watch Gordon Ramsey…or whoever.
I started out by cutting a pumpkin shape out of orange felt. I used a little brown piece for the stem. I then embroidered on some little details, but if you’re not into sewing you could just use little pieces of black felt to create a jack-o-lantern face and glue it on with fabric glue.
I did a little running stitch around the outside. Then I tied French knots for the eyes, and did a little embroidered mouth. Simple, and so cute.
For the pumpkin vine I used a little curled green ribbon. To make the curls, wrap the ribbon around a dowel -I used a wooden spoon since that’s what I had on hand. Secure with cloths pins or anything oven safe, and bake in your oven at 250 degrees for 25 min. Let cool then unravel. I just used a little hot glue to attach the ribbon and the pumpkin to the hair clip.
All set for a little fall frolicking on a warm day. And, perfect for keeping your hair out of your face while you do important kid stuff, like playing on the monkey bars. 😉
Life is a party, and you’ll be the best dressed one there with pretty accessories like a pumpkin hair clip. 😉 Happy Fall.
