Every once in a great while, one might get the urge to create something nice for another person. Recently, I had the aforementioned urge and decided to make a hair pretty for a particular someone. In case you don't know what a hair pretty is I will give you the basic description. A hair pretty is something that one puts in their hair to add a bit a pizazz to their coif.
For this particular hair pretty, I used the following:
- a hair thingy that holds hair in place
- orange, yellow, and white plastic flowers
(do not use real flowers, no one wants rotting flowers in their hair.)
- some plastic leaves
(a little bit of foliage goes a long way)
- orange ribbon
(I like orange )
To bind all of the components, I chose hot glue. Hot glue comes from a hot glue gun. It's called hot glue because it is hot, as the burns on my fingers prove.
Anyway, I wrapped the ribbon around the top and glued it in place. Next, the flowers were added and finally, the leaves where added to cover up the ugly glue joints at the base of the flowers. About an hour later, I presented the hair pretty to a special someone and got quite a nice smile, hug and kiss in return. BOOYAH!
