Lil Firecracker Felt Hair Clips

Little Firecracker Felt Hairclips Free Tutorial by American Felt and Craft

With 4th of July right around the corner I thought I’d share a felt tutorial for the little firecracker in your life.
These super easy little felt firecracker hair clips can be made in a matter of minutes and are real show stoppers!

You will need:

Felt in desired firecracker colors I used Cadet, Lipstick, and White.

Hot glue and glue gun

Hair Clips

To Make:

Cut each of your felt 3 colors into 5″  x 2″  rectangles.

Stack colors together and sew or glue pieces together along one of the long sides.

This will keep the hair clips from coming apart.

Cut fringe into felt leaving a 1/4″ base where you glued the pieces together.

Place  length of glue along the 1/4″ uncut bottom and carefully roll up, you don’t want to burn your fingers.

Roll up felt to create firecracker

Cut a small circle from felt and hot glue to base, the easiest way to do this is to cut a small circle glue in place and then cut to size.

    I’m looking for an easy broach to make for 4th of July to give to friends and family and I might try using this and gluing a broach back to it and maybe making some type of charm to attach on the front. Thanks for the clever and easy (although I’ve not tried to make them yet!) idea. It’s just so very cute.

    Cute! You could make tiny ones to stick onto little babies’ heads that don’t have hair! Have you tried Girlie Glue to stick bows on? I LOVE this stuff. I’m going to make some today! thanks for the idea!
