With Christmas coming up, we have started to think about what small little DIY stocking stuffers we can make to bring some cuteness and joy to our christmas morning. We are always suckers for DIY hairties or handmade earrings as stocking stuffers for little girls, but we wanted to up the cute and easy gift factor even more- and this DIY Bow Hair Clip Set fits the bill perfectly!
We started with our lined alligator clips to save a step, but if you have grosgrain ribbon and alligator clips or baby snap clips you could also line your own clips with our clip lining tutorial! We love being able to customize everything about the gifts we give, and these hair clips are customizable from the color of the ribbon to the style of the bow or embellishment! These hair clip bows are sure to bring a smile to any little girls face, for any occasion!
Supplies Needed to make your own DIY Bow Hair Clip Set:
- grosgrain ribbon and alligator clips or baby snap clips OR partially lined alligator clips
- Silly Grip to line alligator clips
- we used mini glitter bows to embellish out alligator clips, but mini sequin bows or small ribbon bows would look cute as well- on both alligator clips or baby snap clips! We also love the look of a rhinestone button or fun acrylic button– you can really have fun with all the choices available and let your imagination run wild!
- a lighter and hot glue
If you are lining your own clips, select your ribbon colors and follow the instructions on our clip lining tutorial.If you are using clips that have already been partially lined, be sure to singe any exposed ends to prevent unraveling.
If you are using alligator clips, be sure to line them with silly grip to keep your hair clips from slipping. We even have a blog tutorial that goes further in depth on lining alligator clips with silly grip.
Using hot glue, secure your bow or embellishment in place. Be sure to inspect your bows for any excess strands and singe them off before you glue them in place.
Everything is cuter in multiples, so repeat until you have enough clips to make a cute little set!
The more, the merrier!
As a little bonus, we also made some alligator clips with our new favorite flower, the rolled felt roses!
How adorable and festive are those hair clips! They even look great on baby snap clips! If you are short on time or not in the mood to DIY, we have a selection of premade baby snap clips and boutique hair clips for sale as well.
