There are many hair accessory options to consider for a wedding. Making hair clips can personalize the bridal party's hair. You can coordinate the floral hair clips to match the flowers used in the wedding. Floral clips are easy to make and can be done in very little time.
Decide on real or silk flowers. You can do silk flowers in advance. When using real flowers in clips you must do them close to the ceremony, to ensure freshness. You can order the fresh flowers from your florist to match your floral design.
Wire your fresh flowers. Take a piece of floral wire about 6 inches long. Push it through the base of the flower half way. Bend it in half-way down the flower stem. Wrap the stems with floral tape. Cut silk flowers with stems long enough to attach to hair clips.
Choose how many flowers you would like your clip to have. This will depend on the size of the flowers and the clip itself. You may want to try different arrangements to find the one that works best for you.
Attach the flowers to the hair clip using floral wire. Be sure flowers are only on 1 side of the clip. Keep the handle of the hair clip free, as well.
Add ribbon to the clip and coordinate the colors with the flowers. You can arrange the ribbon into a bow, making loops and securing with the floral ribbon.
Place the clip in your hair. Try different styles and arrangements with your personalized hair clip.
When using fresh flowers make sure you store them in a cool place until the ceremony. Silk flower hair clips must be stored someplace where they cannot be crushed.
