If you are going to a baby shower and you know the Mommy-To-Be is having a girl, hair bows and flower clips will be a definite part of that baby's wardrobe! They are like shoes, you can never have too many! Plus, they are very easy to make. Brought to you from Somewhat Simple is a tutorial for putting ribbon on an alligator clip and then after you have the ribbon on the clip, simply hot glue gun a fake flower on top of the ribbon with a decorative gem or button placed in the middle (a future tutorial on this part coming). If you don't know how to make them, or don't want to make them, you can purchase decorative hair clips anywhere, even Walmart and Target. Malls tend to have a lot of boutiques that sell really cute ones as well. However, making them yourself is usually much cheaper. Once you have some hair bows, clip them to some wooden skewers, stick them in a vase and tie a ribbon around it. Here is a picture of the inspiration from Sister's Stuff:
Not only are you giving them something that is unique and thoughtful, but its something they will definitely use, and you are giving them a place to store it decoratively in the baby's room! Two gifts in one!
