Alphabetical Element for Your Girls’ Hair Accessories
Younger girls under six years old, usually move a lot. They need practical, light, yet steady hair accessories with preferences given to favorite colors (normally bright ones, such as orange, yellow, red, light blue and green) or some cute ornaments inspired from toys. Adding alphabetical elements to the hair bands and pins will be very attractive and fun for the kids. Moreover, younger girls can play with various letters resembling their own names of the names of their idolized toy characters. Velvet is recommended to be used to create the alphabets since this fabric is thick and tough enough to be exposed outdoor. Longer set of letters, like your daughter’s nick name can be added to headbands since there is enough space to glue all these letters together. Creating headbands from ribbons and adding the letters on top of it can be a very practical way to make specialized hair accessories. These materials are soft enough to be worn by young kids since it will not be itchy for them when contact with the skins occurs. For a three dimensional effect, cut a letter in two or three different sizes with a half centimeter difference from one another. Knot a string in the middle of the letter, arranging the largest at the bottom, then the middle one and followed by the smallest one. To highlight the gradation, combine shades of colors such as: red, orange and yellow.
