Default Silk Flowers

How does everyone attach silk flowers to things? Beanies, headbands, clips? I know there must be an easy way. Hope someone can help.

Thanks,
Melanie

Well I'm a newbie, but from what I have been reading on the forum here, people are attaching the silk flowers to lined alligator clips. Then you can clip them right on a headband or hat and still be able to switch it out for other colors to go with different outfits. You can find a simple tutorial for lined clippies here: This Is The Year: Lined clippie tutorial

Then with your silk flower, pull the stem off, pull off the hard plastic green part that holds the flower parts together (I'm sure it has a real name but I don't know what it is!), and basically dissect your flower. Put it together again (minus the stem & the green part holding it together) and hot glue in between layers. Cut off the tiny bit of round stem that is left over. Let it cool off all theway, then add hot glue to the back of the flower or your clippie where you want to attach the flower to the clippie. Apply clippie to flower where the glue is (I know, duh, right?) and voila!! You have a flower clippie! Now you can put it directly in their hair, on a headband, or hat, or whatever! HTH!!!

I know this is an old thread, but violet your directions make it sound like something I could do I'm going to try my hand at flower clippies (thank you for your great instructions!)

If you want to glue them straight onto the hat you can buy glue sticks that are for fabric. Then I would suggest glueing a felt circle on the back (inside) of the hat so the dried glue won't poke through. Or if you want them interchangeable just glue them onto clips!

This website sells just the silk flower heads without the stem...making it easier for you to make a hair bow and without having to dissect the flower.

Thank you so much for sharing this website. That is one thing I have had trouble finding! The local chain craft stores don't have a wide variety at all.
