Wraps to Clips.. easy!
Day 4 of Passing IT On!
Addie has been requesting "piggie tails" a lot lately. She loves how long they are and how they shake all over. Seeing as how my sister and I used to use baby blankets for "long hair", i can totally understand and support her "swingy hair".
Today was one of those fun mornings where she knew exactly what she wanted .. and i could not make it happen to her satisfaction. Cute dress ... check. Cute piggie tail ribbions... check. BUT the ribbons were hurting her as i tried to wrap them around her piggie tails. We have a few pony tail wraps from Gymboree.. none of which are easy to use in her hair. Due to my lack of coffee at this time in the morning, i was not at all willing to listen to whining or arguing. So i did what any caffeine deprived DIYer would do.. I got out the glue gun, scissors, ribbon, and 2 alligator clips (though it's still horridly unorganized.. i love having a place for craft stuff under the stairs in a closet!).
I snipped the pony tail holder off the ribbons. Then cut a short piece of ribbon that would fit inside the alligator clip. It doesn't really have to match.. you won't see it.
