Clover Hair Bow

I realized last week that my daughters did not have a St. Patrick's Day hair bow!  So, I whipped these up last Friday.

Here's what you need:
Hair clips
green ribbon
clover buttons (or green buttons will also work)
glue gun
tape measure

Start by cutting 4 lengths of ribbon 4 inches and 4 lengths of ribbon 3 inches.

NExt line the alligator clip with ribbon, here are instructions.

Then, make loops out of the strips of ribbon you cut.  You will end up with eight loops (4 made with the 4 inch pieces and 4 made with the 3 inch pieces).

Glue the smaller loop into the larger loop, so you end up with four double loops of ribbon.

Next glue the loops around in a clover pattern onto the clip.

Finally glue a clover or green button in the middle and that's it!
