Make Bumble Bee Hair Clips

These cute bumble bee hair clips would be the perfect accessory for your bumble bee costume. Or, if you don't feel like going all out for Halloween, try wearing a pair of these clips so you aren't totally left out of the crowd.


  • Hair clips (from Hobby Lobby)
  • Pom Poms (from Hobby Lobby)
  • Hot glue and gun
  • Floral wire (or equivalent)
  • Wire cutters
  • Small cylindrical shaped tool

Cut a 6 inch piece of floral wire. Wrap the wire around a small cylindrical shaped tool, leaving about 1 or 2 inches straight on one end.

Remove the wire from the tool. Open the hair clip and insert the wire as shown.

Wrap the wire around the hair clip. Floral wire is pretty stiff so the wrapping should stay in place.

Hot glue a pom pom to the top of the wire.

Now who wouldn’t smile at someone wearing a pair of these bumble bee clips?

The Real Deal: It cost less than $2.00 to make a pair of bumble bee hair clips.

Go and be pretty,


  1. these are the cutest thing I've seen in a long time! 

  2. These are fantastic and now on my weekend to do list!  Now I have to figure out how to force my daughter to leave them in her hair…. maybe I will be wearing them!

  3. Oh my – these are so adorable! I might just have to make a pair of these for myself…

  4. These are PERFECT for our little bumblebee!!!  I used chennile sticks instead of floral wire, since that's what I had on hand.  It worked great!

  5. OMG! I was looking for something for my daughters 1st birthday, with the Bee theme I think these would be so cute and the talk of the party!

    • Oh so happy, Donna! I would love to see a pic if you get a chance!
