This pretty hair clip is easy and quick to make from bits of zipper and fabric.

I often salvage zippers from old purses and clothing. When you finally have to part with a favourite pair of jeans, this project is a perfect way to be able to continue to wear a little piece of them!

I used similar zipper flowers in my hair and bouquet on my wedding day.

Step 1: Materials

You'll need:

  • zipper
  • button for the flower center
  • felt for the leaves
  • hair clip
  • needle and thread
  • scissors

You may also want the following optional items:

  • embroidery floss
  • additional fabric or materials (for this example I have repurposed some of the denim from the same old jeans I got the zipper from, but I've used all sorts of things including mesh and inner tube rubber)
  • extra embellishments like beads or metal studs
  • pinking shears
