Supplies:

  • 1 flat hair clip
  • about 13 inches of ribbon
  • at least 5 water balloons (10 maximum perhaps)
  • 1 quarter-sized felt or foam circle
  • hot glue gun or strong craft glue
  • a lighter to seal ribbon ends
  • scissors

Instructions:

  1. Lay a 3-inch piece of ribbon (with ends sealed, after cutting, with the lighter very briefly) on your work surface. Put 5 to more water balloons (perpendicular) across the center of the ribbon. Tie and double knot the ribbon around the water balloons.

  2. Cut 3 equal pieces of ribbon, each about 2.5 inches long. Lay the three across one another, hot-gluing at the center between each layer.

  3. Dab a dot of hot glue on the center of the foam or felt circle (or other shape that is about the size of a quarter, my piece of foam was flower-shaped). Hot glue to the appropriate rounded end of the hair clip. Then glue the 3 glued layers of ribbon on the other side of the foam/felt shape. Closeup of birthday hair clip

  4. Take the ribbon-tied balloons and hot glue knot-side-down on the center of the ribbons.

  5. Let dry. Gift wrap or give to the birthday girl!

What a cute idea for a little girl. My grand daughter's turning five shortly and I have time to make some of these for her.
Thanks for sharing.
