A fun project that any one can do!
With a little help a child of 4yrs can even make them!


  • 1 Needle & Thread
  • 2+ Ribbon
  • 2+ Clips


  1. Cut ribbon to desired length.
    Then fold, making loops and make sure each loop is the same length (see picture).
    Then pin along the centre going along all loops.
  2. Then using your needle and thread, sew along the centre following the pins.
    Once you reach the other side, pull the thread till your ribbon is bunched up.
    Then wrap some of the attached thread around the middle.
  3. Open your clip and wrap the thread around it so it secures to the ribbon and once wrapped around a few times then thread the needle thru the thread to make it hold. Then it can be cut off.
  4. You can then choose to add another coloured ribbon around the centre or if you have some type of bling you can sew on.
