Fabulously Festive Holiday Sparkle Hair Bows #fabulouslyfestive

Disclosure: This post is brought to you by Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. I was given a gift card to facilitate making a #fabulouslyfestive craft.

I {adore} any excuse to make hair bows for my little Isabella.
Recently we went to Disneyland and I whipped up a cute Elsa inspired outfit
for her to wear and she definitely needed some sparkly hair bows to make the
outfit just a little bit more festive and fun.

So, I made her some gift bow hair clips out of sparkly ribbon and I'm sharing
a little tutorial with you. These would be perfect for jazzing up your little one's
hair for the upcoming new ball drop!

Cut nine pieces of sparkly ribbon (I used 3/8") in the following lengths:
 3 pieces- 6"
3 pieces - 5"
2 pieces - 4"
1 piece - 1.5"

Fold the ribbon in half to find the middle.
Then, create a figure 8 shape by looping each end toward the middle
and securing with a dot of hot glue.
With the shortest piece, create a cute little ring/circle.

Layer the three long pieces into a flower shape - securing each layer with hot glue.

Take the 5" pieces and layer them on top of the three longest pieces in the same manner.

Criss-cross the smaller pieces and layer them on top the pile of sparkly happiness.

Finally, add the little loop to the middle of the bunch.
And VOILA! You have a gorgeous sparkly holiday bow that will
make your outfit fabulously festive!

If you want to secure the sparkly hair bows to an alligator clip, then first cover
the clip with a almost 4" piece of the same ribbon. 
When I cover an alligator clip, I start on the underside of the clip and glue as I go,
until I wrap around into the inside of clip.

A perfect little sparkle alligator clip to secure your gift bow hair pretties to!

Glue the ribbon gift bows to the alligator clip and they are ready to add a little
jazz to your fabulously festive holiday attire.
They are perfect for piggy tails, double messy buns (my fave!), or secured
together at the top of a big messy bun or regular bun.

I hope this helps make your holidays more festive and sparkly!
Then, my mission will be accomplished :)
