My daughter’s ballet school director knows my love for crafting and asked if I would come up with a head piece for Lexi’s ballet class for recital. There are only eight girls so I knew it would not take long – the piece had to be done before tomorrow when they have their recital pictures taken.
So, Lexi and I took her recital costume around this weekend to a couple of craft stores looking for the perfect ribbon that would coordinate with the costume, then I went to work.
I begin with just looping the ribbon (I used 1 1/2″ wide satin ribbon) around, so I have a flat circle and then I pinch it in the middle. Make sure you are holding the ribbon tightly between two fingers.
Then just put hot glue on the barrette and attach the bow. In the middle I added a flower that coordinates with the costume but, you can also just wrap some ribbon around the middle to cover the wire.
