I’m so excited to share with you today the online shop Hair Bow Supplies Etc!  Why you might ask?  Check out the awesomeness below.  I don’t know about you, but when I get my hands on ribbon, especially ribbon with stripes, trinkets, jewels, fabric flowers, stretchy elastic and glittery stretchy elastic, I get extremely giddy.  This is what I came up with when I was lucky enough to get my hands on some of the very best stuff from Hair Bow Supplies Etc.

So we came up with Interchangeable belts, with interchangeable things to put on them.  Easy enough right?!.

Glue the flowers onto a circle of felt so they fit on nicely.  When I made this one, I cut around where the flowers were glued so there wasn’t any overhang that could be seen from the front.

Fold the glitter elastic to make a bow.  Glue the bow in place in the center of the arrangement, or whatever you want to call it.

Glue the other piece across the bow and glue the jewel in place.  Almost done.  You don’t even need a Diet Coke yet.

Turn over the arrangement and glue the alligator clips vertically in place.  Make sure when you do this, you glue them with the top of the alligator clip aligned with the top of the arrangement so the arrangement won’t fall off the belt.

Take one yard of elastic and measure your little person’s waste.  You can either tie them all in advance or when you decide to wear that particular one. Clip the arrangement onto the elastic, in fact use two if you would like.

There you have it.  I’m excited because I can mix and match many clips with many different bands, depending on what she’s wearing that day.  I don’t know about your girls, but mine like to accessorize.  I can’t wait to explore the possibilities and build our collection of arrangements and belts, wahoo!

_MG_0935-2edited full res All of these great supplies were purchased at Hair Bow Supplies Etc and there’s so much more there than is shown here.  It also helps that the owner is sweet as pie.  Can you see yourself making these?  I can’t wait to make more.
