if you're like me, all you can think about when it comes to january/winter/post-christmas crafting is snowflakes. blue snowflakes, to be exact! & maybe some snowmen for good measure. when my good friend ebeth asked me to make some hairbows for her girls, i of course suggested snowflakes & snowmen. they were super easy & turned out adorable!
first, gather some supplies. polka dot ribbon, white buttons in 2 sizes, & some clearance mini ornament glitter snowflakes, all easy found at the local walmart. [& the mini ornaments were 50% off after christmas! yay!]
i made the bow using this tutorial with about a yard of ribbon per bow. it's real easy, but i find that each bow turns out just a little different each time.
assemble your button snowman. i used half of a mini craft stick [popsicle stick] as a base & then covered it in back with a little scrap of the ribbon:
& cut a little strip of felt for his scarf. cut a tiny fringe on each end to make it more scarf-y & secure with hot glue.
eee! so cute!
attach the assembled snowman to the front with hot glue & a bow clippie [also from walmart] to the back.
the snowflake is even easier... make bow. glue snowflake to front. glue clippie to back. presto.
these turned out so cute i think my big K needs some for her bow arsenal!
sidenote: i may or may not also be inadvertently be dressing my children like fluffy little blue & white snowbanks. i just can't help it.
