Let's go fly a kite

Kites are fun right? So why not wear one in your hair!

This hairclip is super easy to make. All you need is two colours of felt, matching thread, a hair clip and maybe some strong glue.

Start by drawing out a kite shape on paper as a template and cutting this shape out of one of the pieces of felt.

Then fold the template in half and cut this shape out of the other piece of felt. You then want to cut this in half so you have two smaller triangles.

Glue or sew the smaller triangles to the main kite shape.

Next glue the hairclip to the back of the kite shape.

I also sewed mine on a bit for extra security.

Cut out three -or however many you want- small rectangles of felt. These will be the bows hanging off the kite.

To make the bows get a length of thread and tie a knot in it around the middle of the felt rectangle. Do this with the rest of the rectangles on the same piece of thread.

Sew the end of the thread with the bows on to kite, and you're done!
