I wanted an accessory for my hair today, and decided on a bow. Unfortunately, I didn't have a black one to match my outfit today. So, I opted on making one myself. It came out cute and I took photos so I can easily remember when I want to make more of them, and of course, to share with anyone who wants to try it out too!
I started off with a short piece of black ribbon.
Then, I hot glued it into a loop
I took another piece of ribbon.
This one was thinner than the initial piece.
I tied the thin piece around the center of the initial piece.
This is what it looked like.
Then I took a second piece of the same initial ribbon.
This piece was a little longer than the piece I looped.
I took a hair clip (I actually found that a bobby pin works better,)
opened it up, and placed the ribbon through it.
I then folded the ribbon over like this,
and hot glued the fold so the bobby pin was secured.
Finally, I took the top half and hot glued it to the base.
The finishing touch was to cut the edges of the ribbon at an angle.
The whole thing took about 5 minutes
and it was just the thing I needed to jazz up my 'do.
This is my third day hair. =]
The curls are still hanging in there!
