How to Make Colorful Ribbon Hair Clips for Little Girl
Summary: Hi, I’m here to share this tutorial on how to make a colorful ribbon hair clip with flowing tails for little girls. Maybe this project is more favorable for moms who have one or more little darlings.
Seeing too many flower and bow hair clips, I decided to DIY some special. Although this ribbon hair clip also can be considered as a flower one, it’s an extraordinary one! I was inspired by the rainbow in a picture, and then made such a colorful hair clip with rainbow colored ribbons. The addition of tails is to make the ribbons dance in the wind for adding more fun. Can’t find a hair clip for matching your daughter’s outfit suitably? Why not try to make fantastic ribbon hair clips by your own?
