Cute Yarn Hair Clips (Simple)

A few years ago, I was browsing a website and saw something similar to these up for sale. To be honest, the ones for purchase looked much better than the ones that I've made T_T but I still thought that maybe I should share in case someone could take the basics and improve upon the technique.

So, you'll need:
  • Yarn (any color). Actually, gradient  yarn looks fantastic for this kind of project. Mine is a kind of "fuzzy" yarn, which is probably not the best type to use for this.
  • Cardboard
  • Hot glue
  • Hair clips
  • Any extra decorations for your hair clips

Draw the shape of your desired hair clip on your piece of cardboard. (Mine is a shoe box)

Cut out the shape.

Use hot glue to secure the first piece of yarn to your cardboard shape.

Wrap the yarn from top to bottom of the piece of cardboard all the way across the shape, then repeat from left to right. Cover the shape from left to right about three times, or until the cardboard color can no longer be seen. Any "extra" decorations can be added in this step Lastly, hot glue a snap hair clip to the back  of the shape.

Well...that's all ._.
Not such a great post, but maybe it can give someone a bit of inspiration. If someone comes up with a different technique, feel free to mention it ^^
