Yesterday when my girls got home their eyes lit up with pure excitement that I could make these barrettes for them. They started talking about more colors and immediately wanted to wear them. They couldn't believe I actually could buy barrettes like these when I was little, that - it's just the way it was. I have so many more things to share, photos & tutorials of my past. So many that I got a little over-excited and created a new "day" of the week to focus on it! It's called "Throw-Back Thursday" and I hope you'll come back to visit every week and share some memories with me! Grab the Throw-Back button to book mark it!
OK - I digress...Here's your step by step photo tutorial to help you make some fun barrettes in any color combination and ribbon style to suit your fancy! Enjoy!
|You will need : 2 large barrettes and 2 pieces of ribbon 21" long for each barrette. Flat & Ric-Rac or all flat|
|Start by placing the ribbons under the top hook of the barrette and tie once|
|Immediately begin to criss-cross and weave the ribbons through the center space|
|Continue to the very bottom of the barrette, scrunching up the ribbon to the top, to make sure you really weave and fill in as much as you can as it curves underneath|
|Once the weaving is completed, tie the ends right over left and let over right into a knot.|
|Now grab both ribbons and tie them into a single knot together to ensure it won't loosed over time.|
