We are approaching Canada Day. Most of the time Canadians can be quite reserved when it comes to showing our patriotic side. However, when Canada Day arrives we are more than happy to share our love for our incredible country.
In the past we made a handprint Canada flag for our front door – we still hang it up every year. To show our pride, this year I decided to make another Canada Day craft for kids. We took inspiration from our past hair clip crafts and made adorable maple leaf Canada Day hair clips for the kids.

You only need a few supplies and our free printable maple leaf template to make this Canada Day craft. Once you’ve made the felt maple leafs, wear them with pride all year round.
Canada Day Craft – Maple Leaf Hair Clips
Start by printing off the free printable felt maple leaf template. Cut out the three paper maple leaves.
Once the paper template is cut out, pin the leaves onto the red and white felt and cut them out. The large and smallest leaf are to be cut from the red felt. The white felt is for the medium sized leaf. You can switch up the colours if you like…whatever your kids wants to make.
Once the hair clip is sewn onto the largest leaf, use the fabric glue to adhere the white leaf on top of the large leaf. And, finally glue the small red leaf to the medium leaf. They will stack easily on top of each other.
Once the leaves are completely dry, have fun wearing your Canada maple leaf proudly.
How cute are these super cool hair clips. A fun Canada Day craft for the kids to make. Perfect for Canada Day or any day of the week. Clip them onto your shirt, in your hair or onto a chain and wear them as a necklace. So many way to show your love for our beautiful country.
