Topped with a bow

My girls don't have a whole lot of hair and what the little ones does have is in the shape of a mullet. So, girlifying them is very important and tricky. I gathered ribbons and elastics. (not pictured here is those little disposable back elastics, they work well for this.)

Cut a 3-5 inch length of ribbon...
or fabric of varying lengths.
Seal ends.
Tie in a knot around elastic.

Girlify like crazy.

Works with curly ribbon too.

Have a ribbon swap with friends and you just may end up with every color you will ever need. Because the ends are sealed, if an elastic breaks, just tie ribbon to a new elastic. I love these because they are small enough that they don't over power a little head and you can use several per hair style.
These are very cost effective and easy to make.

Those are cute. All the time I'm lookoing for something for those plain elastics. Good idea tying the ribbon to the elastic, then it will actually stay in!

Those are way cute! The plain elastics seem to be the only thing to use in wispy girly hair that won't fall out, and that's a great way to make them purty!

Great idea! I use ribbon all the time in Macey's hair but they are always falling out by the end of the day.
