Intro: How to Make a Princess Castle Hair Clippie
This sweet castle clippie is so cute, and fairly easy to make!
First, take a 1" piece of 3/8" ribbon color of your choice, and fold it on itself, and glue it in a 'cone' shape.
Do this step twice.
Then, take a 1" piece of 7/8" ribbon color of your choice, glue it to the front of the 'cone', at the top.
then, take the sides, wrap them around the back, and glue down.
Remember to use just a small amount of glue for this! I used a bead of it down the edge.
You *may* need to trim off a small amount to keep it from looking 'bulky' in back.
Remember also, to do this step twice!!!!
next, take a 2" strip of 7/8" ribbon, and glue in the sides (just a little bit!)
Then, glue a small bit on the bottom up on itself.
Turn it over, and glue one of the 'towers' on the edge of the castle
After you have the towers glued on, make the windows.
I used 1/4" ribbon, and cut VERY SMALL squares. SEAL THEM!! I used Fray Check.
Then, make a drawbridge by cutting "U" shape into a piece of 7/8" white ribbon.
you now have a completed castle!
At this point, you can either turn it into a pin, or whatever you desire!
I put it on a lined clippie!
You can makes these in ALL SORTS of color combinations! use your imagination!
