Christmas Tree Ribbon Sculpture Hair Clip Tutorial

Here is a quick and easy little tutorial for a Christmas tree hair clip or brooch. :)
The supplies you need:
One alligator clip or pin back
Green ribbon
(I just recently also found some cute green ribbon with white polka dots on it that would be cute too!)
Brown Ribbon
Star bead accent (I found these adorable stars at Walmart)
Hot Glue gun
Line your alligator clip with the brown ribbon:

 Cut your strips of green ribbon, I don't always measure.. I usually eye ball it and it turns out fine... so don't really worry about being exact if you don't want to. :)
 Fold them in half and use your hot glue gun to secure the ends.
 From the bottom up, start adding the tree layers.
 Until you have reached the top.. then you add the star, or any other embellishment, you wish to use. Like a small bow or whatnot. :)
 And here is is complete :) ready to make you or your child look adorably festive!! :)
If you would like to make this a brooch, all you have to do is use a strip of the brown ribbon by itself, the use your hot glue to attach it to a pin back. :)
 Here it is modeled by my daughter Kiah!

Simple and cute.. just the way I like it!! :) Hope you enjoyed this little tutorial!

  1. I am making myself one! Then I'm going to make some ornaments for my office! Cheap and cute, my two favorites!!

  2. That is such a fantastic idea! What a unique spin on an old favorite. Is a grown woman too old to wear one?!?!?!

    I'm a new follower. Will you follow me back?

  3. How lovely, thank you for sharing your wonderful ideal with us.

  4. Such a cute idea! Perhaps I might be able to bribe my little daughter to wear one. Unfortunately she doesn't like hair clips.

  5. I made these and blogged about it today --
