Leaves changing for the fall means so many exciting things. My girls are giddy about the Ghost Hair Bows I just made them. This craft project takes only a few minutes and the rewards are totally worth it! Even if you think you do not have an ounce of craftiness in you…you can do this project!
Ghost Hair Bow Materials
- Glue Gun (super glue works as well)
- Ribbon – White (thin or thick), black (thin), and a favorite color (thin)
- Googley eyes
- Hair Clips – you can also get these at beauty supply stores
Ghost Hair Bow Tutorial
Start this project by covering the hair clip with black ribbon. Use the lighter to lightly burn the edges of the ribbon before you glue it to the hair clip. The photo below is merely an example. You certainly can cover the clip in green ribbon. I chose black ribbon to cover my clip.
Cut the three pieces of thick white ribbon approximately 2 inches in length. Glue the white pieces of ribbon together. Using a lighter lightly burn the edges of the ribbon to prevent fraying.
Using the accent color ribbon, make a small bow to glue onto the top of the ghosts head. You can add a sparkle if you have any (because most things are better with glitter and sparkles). Be sure to seal the ends of that ribbon as well.
Glue some googley eyes to your ghost and it is complete!
Glue the fully finished ghost onto the ribbon wrapped hair clip.
Aren’t these ghost bows a great addition to your September and October? I am sure these will be accessories for my girls for the next few weeks. The googley eyes is what makes them the most exciting in our house!
