Craft lessons: Ellie for hair clip

Craft tutorial

Isn’t little Ellie so cute?

Start with 24 inches of 4mm decorative trim. You can find trim like this on a roll in the ribbon section of a craft store. This will yield a 1.25 inch diameter flower. Tie knots the entire length of the trim.

Make the knots close together. Keep on tying…

This is what you should have now.

Cut off the ends. Swirl the trim in a circle.

Put a blob of hot glue on a piece of felt. Place the flower on the glue and hold it down until the glue dries.

Cut away the excess felt. And there you have an Ellie.

Add your little Ellie to a clip or headband. Either way, she’ll be a cute one!
