I still love collecting shells and was on a roll a few evenings ago. Do any other 28 year olds still collect shells? : / Can you be on a roll collecting shells? Anyway I collected some teeny tiny pretty sea shells and had a pocket full when I got home. However when I did get home with my jingly jangly pockets I wondered what I could do with my shells. So I decided to create some hair clips.
Materials needed -
Silver hair clip
Different materials to cut into circles
Cut circles from your fabric. Fold in half, then again, then sew in this shapes. Sew four together in this way to make one circle. Then create another layer by repeating this process. Then with net or voil cut another circle, but pinch together at the bottom and sew onto the top of your flower. Then add a choice of beads and shells. This very pretty sea shell already had a little hole in, handy!
Thread beads onto thin wire and wrap around. Then choose a pretty shell and glue onto your clip using strong glue. Clamp in place and leave to dry. You should now have a pretty little beach hair slide.
I also created a couple more....on a roll again ; )
