1. Part your hair into two even sections.
2. Take a small strand of hair (preferably from underneath so that it wraps around the entire seciton) from one section and bring it over to the other side. Make sure your strands of hair aren’t too large, or it will look more like a regular braid!
3. Do the same thing with the other section.
4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 until the braid is finished.
5. To make your braid a little more full looking, lighting tug the edges of the braid to widen it.
1. Tie yarn to one layer of hair at the root. We teased the roots a little bit to help the yarn stay.
2. Braid the pieces in with the same technique as seen above. Be sure to vary the colors of yarn.
3. Trim pieces of yarn and tie off with yarn.
If you need a quick ‘just because’ gift for someone, this is it! It’s simple to make, couldn’t be less expensive and we can all use one. I for one am always losing my keys and this, by far, is the easiest way for me to keep track of them.
1. Cut out a circle in the cardboard that is a bit larger than a quarter.
2. Cut your wire hanger in a section that is about 10î long.
3. Bend it like you see in the photo. It should have a hook and an area where you can glue it down. Each end should have a tiny loop. The tiny loop at the top is for the nail.
4. Hot glue the wire on top of the circle of cardboard.
5. Cut out 6 layers of book pages in a flower pattern provided using straight edge scissors and pinking shears so that your flower has texture.
6. Staple the layers together in the middle in an X (this is my big flower making secret)
7. Fold up the top layer to cover the staples and continue folding up the layers to make your flower come to life.
8. Lightly spray with the Krylon Clear Coat and let dry.
9. Give it several more coats of the Krylon Clear Coat but only a little at a time. Do this until the flower is nice and sturdy.
10. Hot glue the flower on top of the wire and disk and hang it with a nail.
