Hi, y'all!  I'm Bethany from Pitter And Glink, and I'm so thrilled to be doing my first guest post!  

I can't think of a better place to do that than Everything Under the Moon.  I was so excited when Nikki extended the invitation.  I spent a while trying to come up with the perfect Christmas craft to share.  I finally decided to share the Christmas hair clip I made for my niece.  The inspiration for this project came from Pinterest.  Imagine that? :)  I started with these supplies...

I used red and white sparkly felt, green felt, and a metal hair clip.  And you probably notice those cute little reindeer buttons.  Well, I didn't end up using them.  I had planned on it, but I ended up using a sparkly red pom pom instead.  I found the flower template while browsing Pinterest.  You can get the flower template from yoonie-at-home.  (Yoonie's tutorial is great, and she uses her flower to create a headband!)
Step One: Cut out the template pieces.  Pin them to your felt and cut out your felt pieces.
Step Two: I wanted to add a little something to the white flower, so I stitched around the white flower petals with red thread.
Step Three: Sew all the pieces together with a few stitches in the middle.
Step Four: Add the center embellishment to cover up your stitches.  I used a sparkly red pom pom.  Clip a circle of felt in between your hair clip.  You are going to create a sandwich with your flower on top, then the top of the hair clip, then the felt circle.
Step Five: Glue the flower to the top of the clip.  (The picture below is the back view, of course.)
Step Six: Admire your beautiful Christmas hair clip!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.  If you did, come check out my blog to see my other tutorials!  Merry Christmas! :)
