DIY Hair Ribbon Accessories Tutorial

Welcome to this months hair carnival, where we are showing off our crafting skills and giving you a chance to win some items! Now, I have tried and failed miserably at making boutique style hair bows and even just simple hair bows to be honest. But I have seen fancy hair accessories made from ribbon and ponytail holders on sell for $5+ and though, I could make those! They are very simple to make and I’m going to show you how!
