St Patty day bows

St. Patty’s Day Hair Bows

Saint Patrick’s day is comming up and that means I get to make some bows to go in my girls hair!  I came up with some little clover clips.  It was pretty easy.  Let me show you . . .
Line your hair clips with ribbon with 3/8″ grosgrain ribbon. 
Cut three pieces of ribbon four inches.
Fold your ribbon in half and put a dob of hot glue in the crease.
This next step is hard to explain but I think that by looking at the picture above you can figure it out.  You put a dot of hot glue on the end of the ribbon and overlap the other end of the ribbon on top of that.  Clear as mud?  You basically are trying to make a little heart. 
Take your little clover petals and glue them onto your clip.
It’s looking good and almost done.  One last step though . . .
Your going to need to put a little line of hot glue on the outside of the heart where you pinched it and then glue it down to the clip.  If you don’t it will flip out funny.   Now go make some bows so your little girls won’t get pinched on St. Patty’s day.  These are way cuter than just wearing a green shirt!
