Trim Felt Shapes

In this example, I cut an orange carrot and the outline of a white bunny. Make sure that the shapes you cut are large enough to disguise common metal hair clips, because you’ll be gluing those to the backside. Other ideas? An Easter egg (embroider your own design), a little yellow chick, or colorful flowers.

Embroider the Felt

Use a needle and thread to add simple details to the felt. I used orange embroidery thread to add subtle lines to the carrot and made a tassel of assorted green thread to create carrot greens. For the bunny, pink thread was used to embroider the inside of the ears and a nose, and light gray thread was perfect for the eyes and whiskers.

Attach the Clips With Hot Glue

Snap open the clips, and use the hot glue to secure them to the felt. Keep the clips open until the glue hardens to prevent the underside of the clip from adhering to the glue.

Put the Clips to the Test

Let your kids dress to impress. Toddlers will love identifying and selecting a different clip each day, and if you let the older kids make their own, they’ll be excited to wear something they created themselves.
