A dragonfly to adorn your little one's hair!
I enjoyed making this new little hair clip.
Want to know how?
-a small alligator clip (got mine at Hair Bow Center)
-hot glue and/or a glue you like and trust
First, line your clippie. (There are lots of tutorials out there on how to do this. Just do a search.) I chose green because it would blend in with the bug's body.
Next, cut a piece of green ribbon for the body that is 1.5x the size of the clip. Roll one end under for the head and glue down. Trim the other end for the tail. Attach to the clip.
Then make the wings. Two big loops for the big wings. Glue down. Two small loops for the small wings. Glue down.
Next, roll two tiny pieces of ribbon into circles for the body. Glue down. The cut parts of the ribbons, always go downward.
Attach googlie eyes with tweezers and some strong glue like E-6000.
Add some Fray Check to the tail to prevent fraying.
Finally, stick it in your little one's hair or, like this dragonfly, give it away to someone special.
