St. Patrick's Day Hairdo Idea

I wasn't planning on posting today. But, this *pre-St. Patricks's hairstyle just turned out so cute! I had to share it. :)

Here's a quick video tutorial showing how...
Make the french braid first. I did a diagonal inside-out french braid. A regular french braid would also work. Or if you don't know how to french braid, you could do an elastic braid. Whatever!

Ribbon Braid dutch braid To sew around the braid, I used our plastic needle and did it basically the same way I did this ribbon headband hairstyle. Start sewing at the bottom, on one side of the braid. Sew up to the top and down the other side with each ribbon. (You'll need 3 pieces of ribbon total.)

Have a happy St. Patrick's Day!
Oh, and in case you're wondering, the cute shamrock bow came from "Kells Bows."

  5. I ended up doing this one this morning for my girlie. Super cute turnout! I ran out of time and could only do one ribbon on the outside of the braid, but it still looked cute. I didn't have my camera this morning, so no pics:( Hopefully it'll still be intact this afternoon though! Thank you for all the fabulous hair style ideas....my daughter's preschool teachers think I am amazing! lol
