DIY Felt Hair Clips

When my niece turned one, I wanted to make something fun for her. So I made these simple DIY Felt Hair Clips. They are easy to make, and so fun! They are made by cutting felt and gluing the felt to the hair clips with hot glue, so there is no sewing or fancy crafting required! You can make your own DIY Felt Hair Clips using the instructions below.

You’ll notice there are 4 of each shape. Two have slits. These are for putting the hair clips in.

You can secure the felt to the clip with a dab of glue on the back.

  1. I have a Cricut Explore, is this an option for to use on my machine? I’ve wanted to try felt forever, but not had the guts to try!

    • Unfortunately, you won’t be successful making this on the Explore. To cut the felt, you need the rotary blade. The regular blade that comes with the Explore won’t cut felt.
