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:
A happy Boo!

Love it! Happy Birthday!
How cute! I came across a bunch of doilies at a yardsale last weekend but couldn’t think of what use they could be. Guess I should have bought some! Thank you for sharing this!
This is adorable! I think it might look good for a bride too 😉
I love these. We will be making these soon for sure!

Beautiful! I will make this for my 7 month old baby!
I love the “you might likes” at the bottom of your posts – I would have missed this and actually wanted a vintage-y clip for my sweater!

Adorable! I thank this would have slipped right pass me, but not now…I’m going to the 99cent store! You are so clever!
So sweet and feminine! Thanks for sharing.
I love this! And I don’t just “want” to make it, I “need” to make it! Lol but I cannot find cheap doilies anywhere!!! What dollar store did you find these at??
