Materials Needed:

40-50 3″ strips of 3/8″ grosgrain ribbon (I used 45, 15 each in 3 different colors)

Ribbon Lined Alligator Clip (or any other clip/headband of your choosing)

String/Thread and Needle. My string was about 18″ long.

Lighter

Scrap Piece of Felt

Glue Gun

Scissors

Loopy Ribbon Puff ClipStep One:

Using the lighter, seal all of the edges on each end of the strips of ribbon you have cut. This takes a bit of time, but is worth it. It prevents the ribbon from fraying later.

This photo is a little blurry, and I may have burnt the edge a bit, lol, but you won’t see that later.

Step Two:

Thread your string through the needle, then tie a knot in the opposite end of the thread. Fold one of your ribbon strips in half and slide onto your needle as shown.

Step Three:

Slide the ribbon off the needle and onto your string. Continue to do this with each loop of ribbon. I slid them to the end of the string every few pieces so they wouldn’t get in my way.

Step Four:

Once you have all of the ribbon pieces on your string, push them all tight together at the end of the string like so.

Step Five:

Tie the two ends of your string together, then clip off the excess length of string. Or, you can sew all of the ribbons together by passing the needle and thread back and forth through the ribbons and then tying off. Since we are going to be securing this puff to a felt circle with hot glue, I didn’t feel that was necessary.

Step Six:

Using your scissors, cut a circle about 2″ in diameter out of your small piece of felt. It doesn’t need to be a perfect circle. No one will see it when anyone is wearing it 🙂

Then, squeeze a thin layer of hot glue over most of the circle.

Step Seven:

While the glue is still hot, quickly press the bottom of your loopy ribbon puff (the side with the string knot showing) flat onto the glue side of your felt circle. Hold firmly in place for about 15 seconds to be sure it attaches well.,
