I picked up a pack of lace doilies from the dollar store (99 cent store) and made this gardenia-inspire hair clip for Boo.

These doilies came in a pack of three:

I took each doily and folded it in half:

Then created a fan shape by scrunching up the bottom:

Then I sewed the bottom part of the “fan” shape to a small piece of felt:

I took the other 2 doilies and repeated the same steps but placed them on the felt in opposite directions:

After each doily was sewn to the felt, I trimmed any excess felt off:

I took scissors and cut into the doily to help it fan out more and trimmed pieces that I thought were too large:

I used a needle and thread to add a few stitches in areas I thought needed to be tacked down a little:

Finally I used a glue gun to attach my doily flower to a clip. You could attach it to a head band if you prefer too!

So dainty and pretty. You could add a vintage pearl button if you want in the middle but I wanted it plain and pretty:
