My friend made me the most gorgeous hair bows for Christmas last year!
She knows I am crafty and so she was dedicated to making me something wonderful and handmade...she totally won Christmas gift giving with these beautiful hair pieces!
I decided I must learn how to make them!
You will need:
6 squares of 2.5" Blue Satin Ribbon
6 squares of 2" White Satin Ribbon
6 squares of 1.5" Blue Satin Ribbon
18 squares of 1.5" White Satin Ribbon
Needle and thread
2 Felt circle backing pieces
1 hair clip of choice
(the width of the ribbon is up to you...the larger the width,
the larger the project...just cut the pieces square)
Lightly burn the cut edges with a lighter to prevent fraying.
Hot glue and fold in half to make a triangle.
Hot glue and fold in half again!
Hot glue and fold in half one more time!
Then snip the back of the triangle so it sits flat...
Burn the cut part with a lighter.
Then hot glue them together (or hand sew)
Then hot glue the snowflake onto a felt circle.
If using a french clip, remove the center part and hot glue it on the felt circle.
Hot glue on the second felt circle and replace the center part of the clip!
Easier said than done...but I love it!
Like this cute headband is like the Alice in Wonderland headband I did here.
Kanzsashi is so cool, you can make anything you can think of!
So pretty, right?
So hard to pick a favorite!
Stack layers, add feathers and a jewel!
