A few weeks ago, I showed you some easy loom band crafts that my daughter made. She has a ton of Rainbow Loom bracelets, and because it seems like they multiply overnight, I wanted see what else we could make with the bands. Now that warm weather has arrived, I thought it would be fun to make some cute accessories to go with her spring outfits. So, the little Diva and I made some loom band hair clips in the shape of spring flowers and strawberries.
She made a tulip and a rose without following any pattern, which I think is pretty impressive. The tulip has three points, and the rose is more of a bud. They each have a stem and a little leaf on one side. She also wanted to make a strawberry, but she was having trouble getting the shape right, so she found a tutorial online and got the shape she was looking for.
To make the hair clips, I took some plain barrettes that we already had and used hot glue to attach the Rainbow Loom charms onto the clips -- Easy peasy!
Aren't they cute?! If you have girls in your life, you know how expensive their accessories can be! My daughter loves wearing headbands, bows and flowers in her hair, and this is an inexpensive way to add to her collection. Plus, it's nice alternative to making bracelets!
Thanks for checking out the latest craft project. If you have other Rainbow Loom ideas, I would love to hear about them!
Have a great day!
