My daughter, Rapunzel

We are having book fair this week at the children’s school.

Miss S decided she was going as Rapunzel – and of course, I had to make the hair! We based the idea on this.


So armed with wool, flowers, fingers and a hot glue gun, we came up with this.



It sits on her head, like a headband, and will come across her front shoulder  – so people can’t pull it! She just can’t wait to dress like a princess and wear her long hair!


Tutorial: Wedding Hair Bows


I made these hair bows for our wedding, for the flowergirls.

What you’ll need:

  • Ribbons – one wider than the other works best.
  • Hair clip – $2 shops sell these
  • String of beads
  • Accessories
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Lighter

How to make them:

  • Cut the ribbons. The wider one needs to be longer. How much depends on how you want your finished size.

  • Burn the ends with the lighter.

  • Fold the ends of the wide ribbon in to the middle. Using your hot glue gun, glue them in place.
  • Do the same with the thinner ribbon.
  • Hot glue the smaller ribbon in the middle of the larger ribbon.

  • Hot glue your beads/embellishments on.
  • Cut a small strip of the smaller ribbon, and hot glue in the middle of your embellishments.
  • Hot glue the ribbon into the clip. Fold over the ends of the ribbon and hot glue them into place.
  • Stand back and look at your handiwork!
