Default (How to Make)2 Styles of French Clip Bows with Ribbon Leaves and Centerpieces

So I have been experimenting with French clip bows for my own hair. I like the look of ribbon style leaves along the top of the clip and then varying centerpieces.

The first tutorial was classic green ribbon leaves with a pink sheer flower in the center. Here is the link to the tute: http://bowdabrablog.com/2011/12/28/r...-bow-tutorial/

Then next one (which I love!) I created royal blue satin style leaves with a winter glam center. I dry brushed white paint onto the black felt and then added a snowflake charm and rhinestones. Also, I realized the rhinestones adhered awesome to the felt. I use a rhinestone setter but sometimes it is still difficult to get those little guys on. My new obsession felt and rhinestones! Here is the link to that tutorial. http://bowdabrablog.com/2011/12/29/f...m-centerpiece/

Enjoy!

These are pretty. Thank you so much for all your shares. You inspired me to purchase the mini Bowdabra hair bow kit and I've been making some of the dow bows with it. It is so easy. Keep these ideas coming. Have a wonderful New Year.

i'm a fanatic searcher/collector of different styles of leaves! imo a flower needs them and looks more complete/finished.

i love your idea - and thank you!

I love these! Very pretty, and since regular clips would never stay in my hair this might be something I could actually wear. Thanks so much for sharing!
