We thought we’d share with you how to make some easy peasy bow hair clips for you or your little ones seen as it is PARTY season! Having said that, we’re going to precisely zero parties. So… we’ll just have to wear them in the bath or something. Our kids have parties though! All under 5, all more popular than us. Life. These will take you about 10 minutes to make – super quick!
As the entire population of 2-5 year old girls continue to completely idolize Princess Elsa (If you don’t know who that is… You can just stop reading now, the rest of this post will mean zip to you!), my own little girl is well and truly on the Frozen bandwagon. She has the dress, the crown, and some shoes that we made (have a look at them here). So I thought I would complete the look by making some white locks.
There’s a big pinwheel obsession going on in our household right now. Whilst playing around making paper wheels in the garden, I realised it would be just as easy to make a felt version that would make an awesome hairclip (/brooch/hairband/hatpin/keyring..?). This is a great one if you only have a short space of time and requires very little equipment. I didn’t have a hairclip base so I ripped an ugly one apart. Very satisfying!
I don’t know about you, but I find that the only hair clips available to buy for toddlers are pretty hideous. Pink fairies, glittery flowers and gross plastic hearts. But its easy to make your own and it takes all of about ten minutes. I was only going to make a couple but I got a bit addicted and ended up making 7.
