  • 1.

    On your Quinceañera, your fifteenth birthday celebration, you want every detail to be special. To customize hairclips to match your vision of the day, think about what you and your attendants will wear, what flowers they will carry, and how the church and party hall will look when they’re decorated.

    Make a base. Mold white Crayola Model Magic® onto the hairclip base. Make the base big enough to hold your decorations without overpowering the clip.

  • 3.

    Sculpt roses. Flatten more white Model Magic. Cut it into strips with Crayola Scissors. Starting at one end, roll each strip into a rose. Vary the roll’s tightness to make newly opened buds as well as fully unfolded flowers. Add leaves or other shapes to your hairclip. Air-dry the base and decorations.

    Paint the pieces. Cover your craft area with recycled newspaper. With a Crayola Paint Brush, apply gold (or silver) Crayola Premier Tempera to completely cover the flowers and the base. Be sure the petal shapes show. Air-dry the paint.

    Assemble the clip. Secure each flower to the base with Crayola School Glue. Glue the base to the clip to make sure it stays in place. Air-dry the glue.

    Add pizzazz! Glue on trim such as ribbon or strings of pearls. Fan a piece of tulle for gauzy height. Place Crayola Super Sparkle Glitter Glue along the flower edges and centers. Air-dry the clip one last time before wearing!
