I made these for my niece’s Elmo themed birthday party. She is turning 2 years old! They were inexpensive and super easy to make.

I used the following supplies:

*The first 3 are from Etsy, but you can also find the items on Ebay by doing a search for each item.

  1. Shabby Flowers (I ordered them in red, white and black…I like how the black and white ones turned out best!)
  2. Elmo Resins
  3. Alligator Clips
  4. 3/8 inch wide Ribbon to line the alligator clips,  but this is optional
  5. Hot glue gun


I started by hot gluing the Elmo resin to the center of the shabby flower.

Once it was dry I glued the pre-lined alligator clip to the back of it and left it to dry.

If you do decide to line the alligator clip with ribbon, simply cut a 4 and a half inch piece of 3/8 inch wide Ribbon and glue it to the alligator clip starting at the inner side of the top portion of the hair clip. Otherwise, the plain metal alligator clip can be adhered to the back of the flower using a felt circle which you can also purchase via Etsy, Ebay or your local hobby and crafts store.

That is it! Very easy and simple.

Linking up to some of these fun parties!
