My daughter's hair is very fine - so hair clips are kind of a lost cause. However, I try anyway! The alligator clips stay pretty well, as long as there isn't any smooth ribbon on the back to slide them out of her hair.
I followed the tutorial here and made a bunch of my own!
So fast, easy and cute! I was on a roll but unfortunately my helper wanted me to play trains & farm. He had fun for a little while though - he matched up ribbons and buttons, and would hand me more clips. A couple of these are going to my niece for her birthday, the rest are for my daughter.
