Winter Crafts Kids Can Make: Curly Ribbon Clips

December 17, 2012

These adorable curly ribbon clips are simple, even kids can make them. They do require some assistance but can be arranged by little hands. My nieces love these fun clips especially when there are two. You could even arrange the clip on a bag of goodies. All you need is patience.

 

Materials Needed:

 

 

Instructions:
1. Gather wooden clothes pins and dowels.
