Items I used for this project were:
- Buttons and embellishments
- Alligator clips
- Hot glue gun
- Non-slip shelf liner
- Thread or embroidery floss
I have a lot of ribbon so I just used some coordinating colors. I had buttons that I wanted to match the ribbon to.
I covered the alligator clips with ribbon using the glue gun. I start with a drop of glue on the inside top and work my way around the clip. You will have to work quickly, the glue will harden very fast and you will not want all the lumps under your ribbon.
Don't forget to heat seal the ends of your ribbon otherwise it will fray!
Attach the ribbon and embellishments you want to the covered clippie with the glue gun or thread and needle.
As you can see I have attached a very small piece of non-slip liner to the top of the clippie. This will hold the clippie in place so it does not slip out of hair.
Voila! A perfectly cute hair clippie!
