Hair Clip Tree Tutorial

First off, I have to admit that the idea for this hair clip tree was not originally mine.  This is just my version of it.  I first got the idea from my sister-in-law, Jenny, who is responsible for all my girls' cute hair accessories.  This is how she displays her clips at crafts shows and in her studio.  Do you want to make one, too?  They are super quick and easy.  Here is what you will need.
  • A basket, pot, vase, or other container
  • Floral foam
  • Hot glue gun
  • Moss or something else to cover the foam
  • Sticks (I got a big bundle from IKEA)
  • Scissors
First, cut your foam to fit inside your container.  I used a big kitchen knife with great results.
Glue the foam to the bottom of the container for increased stability.  Next, cut your sticks to length, if necessary.  Put each stick in the foam and make adjustments until you are pleased with the arrangement.
I didn't glue each stick into the foam, but if you want to, now is the time.  When you're done with the sticks, grab your foam cover.  I found it easiest to put the glue down in the foam first, then push the moss down on top.
Once your moss is covered, clip all your flowers, bows, and such to your tree and place on the bathroom counter, on top of a dresser, or wherever you like.
Now all my daughters' cute, girly hair clips can double as my bathroom decor!
