Love, love this project!!!!! A perfect gift for little girls. A wonderful project to use the spools of ribbons i have had through the years.
I got the inspiration from Kathleen of Grosgrainfabulous.blogspot.com . Check out her blog for detailed tutorials. Thanks for the tutorial Kathleen!
Really enjoyed making these cute ribbon/headbands. I got excited and so inspired, i made the project right away and finished 20 headbands in a week's time. I made two per character. One for my great-niece and the "twin" for my sister-in-law's daughters who happened to love Disney princesses.
Once i learned the basic structure, i made my own interpretation and used the ribbons i have available.
What you'll need:
Spools of ribbon - basic colors/Disney colors
Glue gun/glue sticks
Anti-fray glue - I have been using clear nail polish and it works perfectly
Needle and thread - you'll need it especially for Belle and Aurora's "skirt"
Sequins beads - optional
Chopstick - you need it to curl ribbons*
* I experimented on other ways to curl a ribbon aside from using the oven. First, i tried hair gel, it worked but i didn't get the curly effect i wanted. Then i tried spraying the ribbons with water then place it around the stick, clip both ends and gingerly iron it and it worked!!!
Thank you to my beautiful model......my great-niece. She is so adorable!!!And to my sister for patiently taking these beautiful pictures. Good job, Nang!!!!
