Ribbon Hair Accessory DIY

I have another great DIY craft for you today using Offray ribbon. Last month I made some hair bows, but sometimes you want something a little less dramatic for your little one’s (our your) hair so I came up with this super easy, super cute idea for a simple ribbon hair accessory made with a barrette.

To make this ribbon hair accessory you will need: about 2 feet of 2 colors of 1/4″ or less width ribbon, scissors, barrettes with an open center, I bought these on Amazon.

Cut your ribbon and lay the ribbon on top of each other in the center of the top of the barrette where the seam of the barrette is (opposite of the opening).

Start weaving the ribbon through the open center of the barrette. Weave each side through and when you do the next weave the second color will show.

Continue weaving until you get to the other side of the barrette. Adjust ribbon as needed so no metal is showing through.

Tie in a knot at the end to secure in place and cut ribbon to desired length. So cute!
