- Cotton String
- Gift bags
The first thing you will need to do is take the paper clip apart. You just unfold it until it makes a triangle. Then superglue the ends together to make them stay. (Keep in mind, the triangle will come apart very easily, so you have to be careful.)
Then take cotton string color of your choosing, and tie a knot in the string around the paper clip, just to give yourself a starting point and a stable foundation.
Then you just wrap the string around the paper clip, covering the entire thing with the string. You can get creative with this. Use a few colors, make designs; personalize it. Ally used her friends' favorite colors, and we tried to give them all somewhat different designs.
Take the same colored strings that you used for the earrings (or different colors, its up to you) and wrapped the strings around the plastic hair combs to make the coordinating pieces:
Here is another example of the finished product:
Ally and I love the way they turned out. I hope her friends enjoy them, and maybe they will appreciate them more because they are home made. :)
