Minnie Mouse Button Hair Clips8:31:00 PM
Minnie Mouse is pretty popular in my house.The twins especially love Minnie. I cannot wait until they get to meet her. Oh, I have no illusions...I know that Princess Pea was desperately afraid of the Easter Bunny (who didn't get within 20 feet of her. So the chances of tearless encounters with characters is minimal. But they still love Minnie, so I thought I'd create some Minnie accessories for all three of my girls.
I started with some black buttons (four different sizes), ribbon, and hair clips.
I wanted to make two sizes of hairbows, since I have two sizes of little girls, and one little hairbow is gracious plenty for each of the twins, while my five year old needs two bigger ones. As I worked through the process, I also realized that the little Minnie Mouses would need red embroidery floss because the ribbon was too wide for the little hairbows. You'll also need some hot glue.
Basically, making these hairbows are pretty easy, as long as you know how to use a hot glue gun. You take one larger button and two smaller ones that look like a head and mouse ears in proportion. Glue the larger button on top of the two smaller ones.
Make a bow and hot glue it onto the buttons like Minnie's bow on top of her head.
Then hot glue the whole shebang onto a hair clip. I had plenty of room to glue the "head" onto the clip for the large Minnies.
The smaller ones we more difficult simple because they are smaller. Have you ever tied a tiny bow with embroidery floss? For the smaller clips, both the ears and the head were glued to the clip. Be generous with the amount of glue; you don't want to see it on the front, but you don't want the hairbow to fall apart.
And that's it! Easy and cute.
And I have 3 little girls who are very excited about these clips!
