I almost submitted this craft for the retro week on so you think you're crafty? After the voting that week maybe I should have. I just barely slid past. Apparantly that is what I am really good at doing. For my tenth birthday we made hair barrettes out of ballons and they were the hit! I decided to turn this one into the latest craze! Flowers. I couldn't resist...
Take 7 waterballoons, all other balloons are way to big, and stuff with a cotton ball. Roll them on the table so they make an oval shape.
Take a cordinating color for the center and stuff it with a cotton ball as well. Then make it into a flat circle.
Cut out a circle of felt large enough to cover the balloon ends on the back. Then cut out a rectangle that will fit onto the circle. Glue the ends of two of the sides of the rectangle onto the circle. This will make a slit you can slide a bobby pin, or a hair barrette, or a hair elastic, or a hair band into.
Pull the center to the sides and hot glue it down so you can't see the hot glue.
Don't want to make your own? Head on over to my shop. Nothing is there currently but by tomorrow night, it will be stocked!
