This is my first time guest blogging at Design Dazzle and I couldn’t be more excited! I have only been blogging for a few short months so to share some design inspiration with all of Toni’s friends is truly such a gift!
As a mother of a three year old little girl with long blond hair in ringlet curls, I’m always looking for a new way to organize her hair bows. Let me show you who I’m talking about…
Yes, she’s my everything! I just can’t bring myself cut her curls so it’s been a lot of ponytails and hair bows recently…. but how to organize her hair flair?
I’ve seen some adorable and crafty hair bow holders before, especially at local craft shows. I decided to create something fun and whimsical to contain the chaos!
- a wooden circle from Michael’s for $5 (but I had a 40% off coupon)
- two spools of brown ribbon
- accent ribbon for the braids
- tiny elastic bands
- black craft markers
- clear nail polish
- small stencil sponge
- a cheap hair bow
- hot glue gun
- peach, pink, black acrylic paint
- white Scribbles dot paint
First thing I did was paint the large wooden circle peach.
While I let the paint dry, I decided to prepare the ribbon for braiding. I cut 6 pieces into 24 inches each. I taped three of the pieces to the table (one side of the hairdo) and started to braid.
When each braid was complete, I secured the ends using small elastic rubberbands.
I then proceed to braid the other three ribbons together and secured with an elastic band as well. Now it’s time for the bangs!
I cut some various short lengths of brown ribbon and hot glued them to the wooden face.
