Take your crocheting skills miniature by creating these dainty and delicate hair combs with petite crocheted flowers! Because they are so teeny tiny they work up quickly, so you can have a whole bouquet of pretty little flowers in an afternoon. These little hair combs can be made in any color you like, so you can customize them for a special occasion or personalize them to make a memorable gift. Wouldn’t they make a lovely gift for Mother’s Day?
Supplies needed to make your own hair combs with crocheted flowers:
- Silver Wire Hair Comb
- Craft Thread in Assorted Colors
- Size F (3.o0 mm) Crochet Hook
- Threading Needle
- Pearl Beads
- Hot Glue Gun
Begin by making your crocheted flowers. I made three flowers for each comb using two similar colors, but feel free to try any combination of colors you like.
Tiny Flower Pattern. (Make 3 of these)
Rnd 1: Begin with magic loop, work 6 sc stitches into magic loop, pull to tighten, slip stitch to join.
*Sl st into next ch 3 loop, (ch 1, sc, dc, sc) into ch 3 loop, sl st through center hole and tighten, repeat four more times, sl st through center hole and tighten, finish off and weave in ends. Six petals formed.
Use the needle to weave in one tail end, and use the other end to attach a bead to the center of the flower. Pull the needle up to the front, thread the bead onto the thread, and push the needle back down on the other side. Knot and weave in end to secure.
Tiny Leaf Pattern (Make four)
Begin by chaining 5. Work a sc into the top loop only of the second chain from the hook. Hdc in the top loop only of the next ch. Dc in the top loop only of the next ch. Hdc and sc into the top loop of the last ch.
Chain 2, and sl st to the other side of that same ch. Work a sc and a hdc into the other side of the same ch. Now going back down the other side of the chain, dc in the next ch, hdc in the next, and finally sc in the last ch. Ch 2, and sl st to the very first sc on the other side of the leaf.
Step Three. Attach crocheted elements to comb.
When you are done with your crocheted flowers and leaves, all that is left to do is attach those little lovelies to your comb. Use a hot glue gun and layer the pieces over each other for stability. Start with leaves as your base.
