St. Patrick’s Day is coming! I am excited. I have never done much with this holiday, but this year I have some fun ideas and a little boy who loves holidays as much as I do with whom I can celebrate. So bring on the green glitter, and let’s start with this Lucky Charm Hair Bow!
My in-laws came to visit last month and my awesomely generous MIL bought my little girl a Valentine’s Day outfit and both of the kids St. Patrick’s Day t-shirts. Well, we all know that I don’t believe in my little princess having a holiday shirt without an appropriately festive bow to coordinate with it! And thus the Lucky Charm Hair Bow was born.
This lucky charm hair bow came together very quickly with just a few supplies and some hot glue. Read on to find out how you can make one for yourself or your little lady. After all it is cute and festive, and it will keep you from getting pinched!
* two varieties of ribbon (I got the striped ribbon in the $1 bin outside of Michael’s and I had the ultra-thin green ribbon from a past project. Ribbon like that is everywhere, so you should be able to find it rather easily.)
* glittery foam clovers (I got mine at JoAnn Fabrics. I think you could find them at any craft store or in the holiday area of most stores.)
* hot glue gun and glue
* alligator clip and/or fold over elastic
* a bit of green felt
Next I cut short strips of ribbon and glued them to fill out the other “petals” of the flower.
Next I looped and glued the thin ribbon into a flower shape on top of the thick ribbon. It doesn’t have to look perfect in the middle because the glue will be hidden by the clovers.
You are done with the artistry of your bow. Seriously. It was that easy!
I decided to put mine on a clip and then just clip it to the elastic so that next year on St. Patrick’s Day when my daughter finally has hair she will still be able to wear it.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, friends!
