6 Steps Guide on How to Crochet Hair Clips

1. Begin by Crocheting a Small Circle

To start crocheting a small circle for your crochet hair clips, begin by making a magic loop (also called a slip knot) and then work 6 single crochet stitches into the center of the loop. Pull on the tail end of your thread to cinch it closed—this is the beginning of your new circle. All that’s left is to join with a slip stitch to the first stitch and tighten your loop together.

With these few simple steps, you’ve created the foundation upon which you can build beautiful crochet hair accessories!

2. Join With a Slip Stitch to the First Stitch

Stitches Around the Circle

Starting the second row of crocheting your hair clip is just as easy! Simply begin single crochet stitches around the circle until you reach your starting point and join with a slip stitch. Don’t forget to pull the loop tight; this will keep your pattern from unraveling and ensure that your stitches are even and secure. With these steps, you can make any number of hair clips in multiple colors and customize them to any look you desire!

3. Continue Crocheting Until Your Circle is Wider

Crocheting hair clips is a fun and creative way to express your unique style. To begin, use a stitch marker to start your round and add more stitches in each subsequent round. Make sure you keep your crochet stitches tight, as this will give you the most secure fit around the clip. Once your circle is the right size, carefully slide it over the clip.

Secure the open ends of your circle together by weaving in loose ends with a tapestry needle. Now you have yourself a beautiful crocheted hair accessory! Add some flair by using colorful or patterned yarn, or even pom poms as decorations.

4. Slip Your Finished Piece

Attaching your crocheted circle to the hair clip is an easy process, once you’ve completed a beautiful piece of crochet work. Simply slip the finished item over the teeth of the clip and hold it there in a slightly taut position – make sure you don’t stretch it too much or it won’t stay in place properly.

Once you’ve secured it you can use a small amount of rubbing alcohol dabbed around the edges will also help ensure your crochet piece stays stable on the clip. Finally, firmly press down on the edges to complete and admire your stunning new crochet hair clip!

5. Make Sure That the Crochet Doesn’t Slide Off

Securing crochet hair clips to your hair is an easy way to add volume and texture to your hairstyle, but the extra hold you get can be greatly enhanced with a light coating of hairspray. Many people don’t realize that it’s not just for styling; it can also help make sure that the crochet doesn’t slide off when you wear it.

A light spray of hairspray evenly applied over the entire surface not only adds hold but helps each strand to stay in place all day long with minimal touch-ups. Don’t worry, you won’t get any crunchy or sticky feeling with this trick – just extra hold!

6. Let Your Hair Clips Dry

Crochet hair clips are surprisingly easy to make, and can help you achieve a sophisticated yet simple hairstyle. All you need is some crochet thread and a few hair clips – the rest is all up to your creativity! After threading the crochet thread around each clip, let them dry properly before attempting any hairstyles.

  3. Fold the yarn in half and insert it into the hair clip.
  4. Pull the ends of the yarn through the loop and tighten.
  5. Trim the ends of the yarn so that they are even.
  6. To add embellishments to the hair clip, thread a piece of ribbon or string through the top of the hair clip and tie it in a bow. You can also glue on beads or sequins.
  7. To make a different type of Crochet Hair Clip, try using a different type of yarn or thread. You can also use multiple colors of yarn to create a striped pattern.
