- A hot glue gun
- Plain hair clips

You will need:
First cut a strip of ribbon long enough to wrap around your clip once.
Next glue one end to the inside of the top grip (the place you squeeze to open the clip).
Continue to glue your ribbon down the length of the top of your clip. Be careful not to glue your clip closed. I hold the clip open until the hot glue has dried (about 30 seconds or so).
Now check to make sure your ribbon is the right length so that when you finish gluing it will look like this. After trimming any excess, finish your clip off by gluing your remaining ribbon to the underside of the top half of your clip. You can always repeat this process on the second half of your clip to really give it a finished off look, but that is completely up to you.
This is how the finished product will look. They are super cute on their own or you could add a bow to the top. The options for decorating these little clips is endless! Enjoy your new clips :)
