Another Hair Brained Craft.
Momma's Lost Her Mind.
Girls have a lot of hair, and a lot of hair stuff. It seems like I just get all the hair stuff figured out and then someone gets a haircut, and we need all new hair stuff.
And now Little Lotte Lou has finally grown enough hair that she can have piggy tails. Yay for the piggies.
She is really excited about it, can't you tell.
Anyway, all of this means that I need some new hair clips for the girls. My niece made some for the girls for Christmas, they are our favorites, but we needed a few more to match with clothes.
I started making these, super cute and easy, little bowtie pasta hair bows.
All you do is, cut a 2 inch square with pinking sheers, then smooch (technical terms today) the middle together and glue with hot glue. Lastly, I hot glued the fabric on a ribbon lined hair clip.
The little ribbon lined hair clips are some of my favorites.
They are the kind that "pop" into place.
They are perfect for holding bangs out little faces with out being to big. So easy all you do is, find ribbon as wide as your clip (grosgrain ribbon works best), and hot glue it down.
Of course no hair bow making session would be complete, for me, without a few ric-rac roses.
I love this green one, however I think it looks more like a chrysanthemum than a rose. I made it the same way I made this one, only bigger. I made it bigger by using two strands of 1 yard each ric-rac. If you are going to make a really big one, you will want to glue the edges down as you go.
The ric-rac roses are for Abba and I. They are way to big for Little Lotte's baby fine hair.
They all turned out so cute. Much better than store bought and cheaper too. In fact, I didn't spend any money for these hair clips. They were all made with left overs from other projects. Gotta LOVE free!!
Thanks for stoppin' by and hangin' out.
