Kanzashi DIY Flower Hair Clip

By: Ann Koeman

It's never been so easy to create DIY hair bows. Create your own Kanzashi DIY Flower Hair Clip using only a few supplies. Best of all, this project isn't expensive to make. Create an easy to hand-sew flower clip to put in any girls hair. Japanese Kansas flower style using scraps of fabric and template. DIY hair accessories are perfect for moms who are constantly looking for cute yet age-appropriate wearables for little girls. Since little ones tend to lose their hair accessories so often, this is a great alternative to more expensive store-bought items. Make a bunch and have your little girl wear a new one every single day.

NotesThe flower can be made to use from either side.
