How to make Rug Hooking Hair Clips!
1. A embroidery hoop.
3. A small cup to trace and a permanent marker.
5. Brightly colored Kunin Felt cut into 1/4" strips. The longer the better.
6. Hair clips.
9. Aleene's tacky glue.
10. Additional felt sheet.
Push your hook through the center of the traced circle. Catch the felt with the hook and pull loop through. Continue pushing and pulling through until you are happy with your flowers center.
Repeating the same technique, over and over.
If you make a mistake, such as spacing your loops to far apart or pulling up too much of a loop- simply pull felt strip from under the hoop to remove mistakes.
Stop working when you have reached desired flower size.
Flip over and trim off any long felt ends.
Add a ample amount of glue to the back side of the flower.
Fold the burlap sections over into the glue, pressing firmly.
Now place more tacky glue over the pressed down burlap.
Add glue to the second felt.
Place a crayon inside the hair clip to keep the clip from accidentally being glued shut if any glue seeps through the felt.
Leave to dry before wearing your floral creation!
