Making Your own Non-Slip Hair Clip

I want to share with all of you something I enjoy doing a lot.  I learned from a good friend in New Jersey how to make clips.   I used this as a side business for a little while and now it has just become more of a hobby.  Well, when time now allows me to sit and design.   Making your own homemade non-slip hair clips.   The ideas you can come up with for the accents are endless.  Once you get the skill down of making the clip itself the rest is smooth sailing.   

 Below you will find a small list of supplies you will need to start.   I taught myself how to make certain bows and new ideas through You Tube.   

  1. A lighter (a candle doesn’t work for this it leaves a black residue on your ribbon).
  2. 3/8 ribbon.
  3. High temp hot glue gun.
  4. Grippers.
  5. Double sided tape.
  6. Accents (if you want any. Plain lined is nice also).
  7. Scissors.
  8. Double prong alligator clips.
  9. Toenail clippers.

  Any scrapbook in sticker can also be used as a accent.  Simple remove the stickiness from the back with a light dusting of baby powder.    Old clothing can be used as accents to make bows or even fabric flowers.    Let your imagination do the work.     Make sure you always have a cover over the table you are using, the hot glue tends to get messy.   I always choose a high temp hot glue gun because it gives you more time to work with the ribbon before drying.     

In the video below I show you a short clip on how to make your own non-slip clips.   Excuse my non manicured nails šŸ’… it’s not something I spend a lot of time on šŸ˜.     Have fun and enjoy making them.  See my YouTube video here !!
