I pick my battles when it comes to fixing her hair and save those ponytails for special occasions until I can get her to keep them in longer. This is a fun day and even if she only keeps them in long enough for a picture that will work for me.
They are super easy to make and I already had all of the supplies and so I went ahead and made them, even though I may end up being the one wearing them before the night is over! Sigh...
St. Patty's Day Shamrock Hair Clips
You will need:
- pieces of felt
- needle & matching thread
- hot glue gun
- alligator hair clips
Pick out your felt in the colors of green that you would like your shamrocks to be cut out of and pick thread that matches the felt colors that you picked out.
Insert your needle as shown below into the first piece of felt.
I then hot glued them to my alligator hair clips and that was it! (I will have to get a good picture, as I seem to have lot the ones I took of this part of the tutorial.)
You can then attach them to a headband or just put them in your hair directly like I did with Miss Priss here.
This tutorial shows you how to make a headband, but since Miss Priss won't wear headbands, I wanted to create mine as hair clips. The shamrock tutorial itself is the same (since that is where I got it!)
