Poinsettia Hair Clip DIY – Easy Dollar Tree Craft


A festive poinsettia hair clip is the perfect holiday accessory.

Many moons ago, I made and sold baby hair clips (Simply Lulu, anyone remember?). I looooved collecting pretty supplies and making cute clips. One of my favorites were these Christmas clips made from faux poinsettia and gems. I searched high and low for the right size and texture, and came up with the idea for the gem clusters in the center. They look so gorgeous with my girls Christmas dresses!

Want to make some too? OK!

Most of my supplies come from Dollar Tree. You can find some of the supplies online at, but the seasonal items will only be available in-stores after Nov 6.

You can use whatever clips you’d like to make these poinsettia clips. I typically use alligator style clips from a beauty supply store, but you could use bar french barrette styles, or even glue them to a headband!

If you do choose to make a headband, you could include some of the greenery as well, it would be stunning, I think I need to try make a headband too.
