However, I will take any excuse to take on a new project (or twelve) and I have a huge craft supply stash. So I thought that I would take this chance to do some stash busting projects and see what cute ideas I could come up with for materials I already have on hand.
For day one I took it easy and made these cute hair clips for Cat from some little wooden button dolls I got in my Christmas stocking.
|Materials: 4.5 inches grosgrain ribbon, alligator clip (I use double pronged for Cat cause she's got crazy curls), wooden doll (came from the dollar store originally)|
|Heat seal the ends of your ribbon so they don't fray, I used a lighter but you can use fray check or a wood burner as well.|
|Using a hot glue gun and starting from the underside of the top of the alligator clip, use the ribbon to line the clip.|
|4.5 inches of ribbon gives you a partially lined clip (bottom is still metal)|
|Run a line of hot glue down the back of your doll and press firmly onto the ribbon lined clip. Hold in place until the glue is set.|
