Contributor post by Danielle at Korker Krazy

The Christmas tree is one of the classic and most-loved symbols of the Christmas season, so why not wear one in your hair?  This hair clip is easy to make yourself with just a little bit of ribbon, a clip, and some hot glue.  As there are as many ways to decorate a real Christmas tree as there are colors in the rainbow, so it is with these little clips.  Make a classic green and red clip and then mix things up a little with some trendy colors.

Supplies Needed:
3/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon – Emerald and Brown
1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon – Red
Alligator Clip (Lined or line your own)
Tiny Bow Embellishment
Scissors/Rotary Cutter
Lighter
Hot Glue Gun & Glue

Step 1: Cut your emerald ribbon. You need to cut 3 pieces in each size – 3″, 2.5″ and 2″. You should have 9 pieces total. Heat seal the ribbon ends. Line your alligator clip with your brown ribbon.

Step 8: Cut a 4″ piece of your 1/4″ red grosgrain ribbon. Loop each side to the center and glue – forming a little bow.
