Step one

Create a round or oval base out of simple felt or craft foam. It should be big enough to make a statement, but not so big that it’s hard to secure to your clip or hair band.

Step two

Layer decorative items, arranging them in a way that is pleasing to the eye, with bigger items towards the back. Then glue the items together, using your glue gun, and adhere to the felt or foam base.
