Measure the amount of ribbon you need by placing it around the hair clip. I start on the top of the inside, then wrap it over the top of the outside, then around the pincher part, and just a little on the underside.
Light the ends of the ribbon to prevent fraying.
Hot glue it into place – again, I start on the top of the inside, then around the top of the outside, and finishing underneath.
Hot glue the butterfly on top (I had to cut wire off the butterflies first, yours may or may not have this).
Cut a small piece of shelf liner into a square shape and hot glue it onto the top of the inside.
Now it’s ready to make a little girl’s hair pretty!
I love being able to make my baby girl cute things. These are some Butterfly Hair Clips I made for her- they are so simple to make! I found the butterflies at Dollar Tree (3 for a dollar); I think I have seen similar at Wal-Mart. The double prong metal hair clips are from Sally’s Beauty Supply. They come in a box for a few dollars- I think I paid $2 for 20 and I think a box of 100 cost about $5.
Butterfly or something similar
double or single prong hair clip
hot glue gun
shelf liner (optional- I was told it helps grip the hair to hold it in place better)
Here are some cute photos of her wearing the hair clip during her 6 month photo shoot:
