I thought you'd like the see the silver lining from yesterday's disaster. I ended up making 2 cute little hair barrettes (following the same steps as in this old blog here). I also made a little halo band as well.
For the rosette, I hot glued some lace over felt, with the lace circle being slightly larger than the felt, then I glued the rosette to the circle. Lastly, I glued it to the barrette.
For the bow, I simply tied the 1.5 inch thick ribbon into a pretty bow and then hot glued it to the barrette. You can't tell because I'm not wearing it, but it's actually pretty huge. Probably 4 inches long! It's the biggest bow barrette I've ever made, but it's pretty awesome. I didn't think I'd like it as much as I do. Remember to treat the ends of ribbon with either fray check or clear nail polish.
