{DIY} French Pouf Clip/Pin

I found this tutorial originally on One Project Closer’s: The Better Half via Pinterest. I have plenty of fabric scraps piled on my kitchen table/craft table and what little girl doesn’t need more hair bows? With both Shiloh and Lyla (my niece), it’s twice as worse with wanting to make every kind of hair bow, flower, headband that can possibly be found to make.

Start out with fabric and two circles (the largest the circumference you want the pouf and another a little smaller but wide enough for the actual clip):


Using the stencil circles, cut 12 large circles and 2 small circles from the fabric:


To start, lay one of the small circles out flat (this will be the bottom of the pouf) and dab a small amount of hot glue (or glue of your preference) in the middle of a large circle. Fold like so:


Once the large circle is folded, place another dab of glue on the bottom corner:


Glue the fold to the top of the small circle and repeat with 3 more until you make a circle. This is the first layer. Add another layer of 4 folds on top of the first layer to make the second layer.



For the remaining 4 large circles, fold them like so and glue them to make the last layer.



With the remaining small circle, cut 2 small slits in the center to insert the clip.

(I trimmed up that top edge for a smoother circle.)

Glue the circle and clip to the bottom of the pouf.


Ta-da! Sweet, sweet pouf. I may or may not have already made 5 others before this actual pouf for the girls. Don’t judge me.

Sweet girl was recovering from a small screaming fit from waking up to find herself not being held. She is one spoiled rotten baby.

Obviously, these can be made to any size and into a pin. Whatever you prefer. This one actually turned out a little bigger than the others, but it’s adorable nonetheless. This was the perfect way to use up some of my scraps lying around/crowding up my table.

Hope you’re all having a great weekend! Hopefully sans rain unlike those of us in the southern part of the country.
