Patriotic Caterpillar Hair Bows

done1_edited-1It’s so much fun having a little girl!  I can’t wait to put these in my little Lainey-Bug’s hair this Memorial Day!  These little guys are easy peasy!  All you need are a couple of clips, 4 ribbons, two rhinestones, a pair of scissors and some hot glue!

Here, I’ll show ya:

Here are the clips I use… they are just simple clips. You can find them at your local craft supply.

Cover your clips with the red grosgrain ribbon.

Then, cut your three ribbons, red, blue and white, all the same size. This is important because you want to ensure you are making even sized circles. These are about 1 1/2″ long.

Make each of your little ribbon strips into circles. Secure with some hot glue.

Now, start securing each of the circles to the ribbon covered clip.

Now add in the white.

Now cut about a two inch piece of metallic silver ribbon, fold and secure against the white ribbon.

Now, add in the red circle. Be sure to glue it all the way to the edge.

Next, pick up two little rhinestones.

Secure with some hot glue, be careful not to over glue here, you don't want gloppy eyes!
