This charming flock of barrettes is the perfect gift for the little hairstylist or butterfly-lover in your life! They are a great way to use up scarp felt, and choosing the coordinating colours is one of the best parts!

Here’s What You Need:


Choose a few coordinating felt colours. You could also make a flock of butterflies in the same colours. Fold a small piece of felt in half, and cut a butterfly wing shape: large and more pointed on the top, smaller and cured on the bottom. Use your barrette as a size guide. Unfold the butterfly and make any desired adjustments for the perfect shape.


Cut out more butterflies, then attach them to mini barrettes. You can glue them, but adding a few sewn stitches makes the barrettes extra secure.

Tadaa! A delightful, summertime touch for the tresses, and a gift sure to warrant squeals of delight.
