Speaking of being crafty lately, I decided to try my hand at something new using my sweet god-daughter Zelie’s 2nd birthday as my motivation and make some hair bows. I’ve never made hair bows –well aside from my scrunchie business back in 6th grade. I found these instructions for making mini-clips. I actually cheated a little and found some clips at Hobby Lobby that were pre-covered with ribbon so all I had to do was add the other ribbon on top. These are incredibly easy to make, even though I still made a few mistakes–at least it’s obvious these are hand-made. These were so easy and fun to make I might to have to make some more! Any other easy and cute hair-bow-making ideas out there?
While I was at Hobby Lobby, some glittery tulle in the same colors as the hair bows caught my eye. Originally I thought of buying a tutu from my friend Sarah’s sister to support her new MollieMaes Crazy Days business. But when I saw that tulle I couldn’t resist at least trying on my own. Mine was definitely not as professionally made as Marie’s but I like how it turned out. The joyous grin on Zelie’s face when she tried it on made it all worth it.
For the tutu, I simply cut up some strips of the tulle and then tied them in loops on some elastic…
The only downside to this tutu is the amount of glitter it sprinkles everywhere! I sprayed some hairspray on in hopes it might make the glitter stick on better. Oh well, it’s pretty much impossible to have a girl and not have glitter in the house at some point, right?
