DIY: Paint Palette and Crayon Hair Clips Giveaway Closed

What do you do when you need a present for an art teacherin' buddy? One who is just as adventurous in her crazy art teacher ensembles as you? Make her a couple wild and crazy hair clippies, of course!
If you've been around this blog for a hot minute then you know I have a thing for wearing a wee palette in my hair. It's kinda become my signature look. So much so that when the kids draw pictures of me I'm usually only recognizable by that lil palette in my 'do. Strangely enough, even tho I made my palette clip, I never did a proper DIY blog post about it. While making this clip for a friend (and one for YOU, dear readerz...deets in a minute), I decided to lay out the steps so you could make one of your own!
Because I was making two, one for my buddy and one for a winner of this here giveaway (okay, if you just can't wait, deets at the bottom of this here post), I simply folded the felt in half, drew a palette shape, pinned and cut them out. 
 Oh, look. A photo of the pinning stage. Fascinating.
I did add a bit of interfacing in-between the two layers of felt to give it a little bit more body. Nobody likes a floppy palette, know what I'm saying? 
 From there, I cut out "paint" shapes and used Witch Stitchery to hold them in place. If you aren't familiar with the magic that is The Witch then, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?! Yes, I'm shouting. And you will be to once you discover the amazement of this hold-in-place-without-pinning magicness. 
Okay. When it comes to stitching, you don't need a fancy machine to impress your friends with your mad stitchin' skillz. What you do need to do is set your machine to the zigzag stitch, change the width of the stitch so it is medium width for the smaller shapes (for zample, the paint blobbies and the palette hole opening) and the widest stitch for the outer edges of the palette. 
The needle will hop back and fourth on either side of the paint blob. It's hard to turn those round shapes but don't you worry your pretty little head about perfection. It is a paint blob, after all.
For the outer edges, set your machine to it's widest stitch. This time, when you sew, allow the needle to go to the very edge of the shape and back in. This may feel odd but this will seal in the edge. 

AND done! Time to add the brush and clip. I done told you perfection was overrated. The paint brush and your massive 'do will hide any mishaps. 
I used hot glue to adhere the paint brushes to the back of the palette. 
As well as an alligator clip. Now time to stick it in that top knot!
But wait, why stop there? Let's make a Box O' Crayons clip too!
Also, would you please take a moment to appreciate that sweater of mine? Because, let's face it. It looks like crayon worms are crawling all over me. And what could be more creepy/bizarre/fantastical than that?
 Alrightie, so, kinda repeat of the palette. Folded fabric, trace, cut out, cut out a piece of interfacing, you get the idea. 
 So that I'd have my designs placed correctly, I cut out my template and traced the places I knew I'd want to stitch certain lines. 
Does it look like that box of crayons is wearing a diaper or is it just me?
 Oh, my. Somebody is definitely bikini ready. 
 Crayons cut...
 And tacked into place with Witch Stitchery. 
 And the sewing commenced. 
Without the tight curves of the palette, sewing the boxes of crayons was a lot easier. 
I did add a small stitch around the tops of the crayons just to add more of a design and further adhere them. Clips were hot glued to the back at a diagonal. 
And viola! Certifiable Crazy Art Teacher Hair Clippie! Let's talk about how you can get your hands on One Palette Hair Clip:

  6. I usually limit myself to one homemade gift per year, since teaching just eats up all my craft time. But my favorite gift was for my grandfather when I was around 12 years old. I created our while family from peanuts (his favorite snack) complete with googly eyes and yarn hair. My big uncle John was made from a walnut and had a red beard. I mounted it on Styrofoam with the caption "Your Nuts" (possessive, but with the double meaning "you're nuts.") PunzRUs. Stormyo@cox.net

  8. Okay, so when I sew zigzag, my stitches LOOK like zigzag. How do you keep them that close to eachother so it looks like embroidery without an embroidery machine?? I see you said to set the zig and the width, but I guess my feed just pushes it too much? I can sew color guard flags with straight line stitches, but that's about it!! I love the pallet!

  10. My favorite gift that I ever created for a loved one: a paper dress that I made for my mom when I was a wee preschooler. (My parents always said that I was the creative type). I wrapped little pieces of paper around my mom so I could measure out her size and then I proceeded to tape them together. I even made her matching paper shoes! I recently inherited a sewing machine so I would love to start making some dresses out of fabric. lol! & once I get the hang of this sewing machine I would LOVE to make some paint palette hair clips for myself and my friends! (Thanks for the tutorial Cassie!) In the meantime, I WOULD LOVE TO WIN one of your AWESOME Paint palette clips! ♡ Challen Baker. chbaker@sylvaniaschools.org

  13. Love it and would love to rock one myself! My favorite gift I made for a friend was using a clear glass ornament ball and shredding up her wedding invitation (in an artsy way of course ). I made paper quilling pieces inside the ball and used fabric from her wedding invites to tie it off at the top. You could see important names, dates and elements of the invitation. Even I was pretty impressed with the final product. Pinterest score !!!

  29. My favorite gift will be this year's Secret Santa gift swap with a woman that loves TV and Coloring and lives in Iowa ( I'm in Texas). I am creating a short step by step lesson and will incude a completed drawing example with a small sketchbook (instead of coloring book) and a set of 24 prismacolor pencils. I also saw she is a mom of now 5 boys so maybe they might want to draw too. My thought has always been why buy a coloring book when you can make your own. Im excited to see what she will do with the gift and what new wings will be spread!

  30. Hi Cassie, I just love the hair clips, I know that your little ones get such a joy seeing you in all of your creative attire. You are a walking, breathing inspiration to your students. My favorite gift that I have given is something I have made from scratch. I really have two, the first one was a ceramic bowl I made while I was still in school becoming an art teacher. This gift I gave to my mentor teacher, she was such an inspiration to me and reassured me that I will be a great teacher. My second gift is the ones I made for my classroom helpers, these students (seventh and eighth graders) volunteer to help teachers during their study skills period. As a new art teacher I have no idea what I would do without them. I made them porcelain ornaments with snowflakes and the year stamped on them, a simple gift but one from the heart.

  31. My very favorite gift ever, cuz it is so dear to my heart, was using my jewelry making skillz to make wine charms sets from my sweet Mother-in-Law's earrings. She had passed away a few months before and had lots of costume jewelry clip-on earrings. I wanted to do something special for my husband and his two sisters in memory of their mom. Brought tears to everyone's eyes when they opened their gift. Each of them remembered occasions when she had worn them. Now each time we use them we can reminisce. kpetri54@gmail.com

  37. I love these, Cassie! I make mini paintings for people. My students love to see my progress- I leave them at school and work on them when I get time. (What's THAT???) They are just simple ones- holiday themed, like a Santa belly, or a single ornament. Right now, painting the Grinch!

  38. Dear Cassie,
    The palette clip is just gorgeous and I would love to win it. I can see myself now with my updo which I call my sumo wrestler hair as I knot it on top of my head with just a hair tie. At the moment most of the topknot bit of my blonde hair is purple and pink so I'm some sort of weird looking sumo art teacher at the moment. Your clip would just set it all off!!!! My favourite gift I made for a couple of teacher friends who taught my daughter when she was in grade 1 was a cute storage tin with a handle that I decorated for each of them according to their favourite things. So one was decorated with a pirate theme and the other was covered in owls. They were covered in decorative papers, layered cutouts, bits and bobs and heaps of matching ribbons to cover the handle. They were pretty stunning, if I do say so myself, and they still rave about them years later!

  39. Thanks for sharing, Cassie (always).

    A couple of months ago I was asked by a friend to contribute to a fundraising bake sale. I figured everyone would be sugared-out, so instead of baking cupcakes, I drew them instead. When I showed up with my "platter" of kawaii-style, colored-pencil-drawn bookmarks, I was met with cheers (whew!). AND, they all sold out (yay!).

  40. I love making gifts for friends send family! This year my fam are all getting ceramic dishes and jewelry. Oddly enough though my teacher bff had an obsessing with squirrels while I have an unnatural great of said creepy creatures. So I put my fear aside last year to paint her a whimsical squirrel wall hanging. She loved it and I loved seeing her excited for something I made. My homemade gifts are appreciated but expected by my family so it's nice to see enthusiasm from someone who doesn't have to like what I give them.

  41. I love the paint pallent. I can definitely do this at home but I would have to modify it a bit. I have a simple brother sewing machine.My stiches around the edges wouldn't be too neat and tidy. Craftsmanship is everything!

    For a gift, my mom really loves flowers . Went to a Gardening/Algiculture for college and everyrhing. She had a picture of a waterlily on the kichean table. After asking her about it, I took a picture of the picture and recreated it for her so it would fit the decor of her kichean.

  44. Cassie--as always your post inspires!! When I was in middle school exactly one hundred thousand years ago, I became obsessed with sculpey (The clay that hardens after baking in the oven). Of course, it was my art teacher who introduced this material to my class. I made a santa clause face (with awesome details and textures!), glued a pin to the back of it and gave it to my sister as a gift. She was an art teacher and retired only 5 years ago after teaching art for 30 years!!! When she retired, she gave the santa pin back to me so that I would wear it while I teach MY OWN art classes! My students love to hear the story of how I made it when "I was little."

    My favorite gift I ever crafted for someone was for my aunt a few years back. It was shortly after the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie came out, and she was super into it and fancied herself a pirate at the time (my family is super weird but awesome lol!!) I decided to make her a pirate-themed scavenger hunt!

    The first thing I did on Christmas morning was put on a CD of pirate music that I had created. Then I handed her an envelope (which I tea-stained and burned to look super old and piraty.) It had a clue written on it and was signed "Jack Sparrow" haha! So each clue lead her to a new envelope with a new clue from Jack. The last clue led her to a wooden box that I had made and decorated to look like a treasure chest. It was filled with all kinds of goodies... Not only was the scavenger hunt fun for my aunt to do, it was fun for me to watch!!

    Oh! And my email is jackieqtip@gmail.com

So, we headed to the thrift store and the hardware store. After a marathon crafting session and our first tiff... he broke my sewing machine. They turned out to be freakishly awesome and the girls loved them! Those horses are definitely the most special gift I've ever crafted for Christmas. Kerrdawn@gmail.com

  74. The palette clip is lovely and I can't think why I didn't think of making one myself... but I don't think I could have made it so nice. I made a brooch for an elderly friend using knitted roses (tiny ones) sewn together with three small knitted leaves and a brooch back sewn behind.

  76. My favorite gift I've ever created is a nameplate for my sister's desk (she's a teacher too!) I hand painted a wood sign when she was hired as a 5th grade teacher.

  78. I once made a pop out mini scrapbook album made from scrapbook paper. I got the idea from pinterest and gave it to my best friend. I would love to gift your clips and make one for myself. I am a junior majoring in art education! I want my style as an art teacher to be like yours!! :D
