Hippie hair wrapping :)

Standard

Back when I was just a little girl, hair wrapping was very popular. At the many fleamarkets I went to, there was always a little stand where women were wrapping childrens hair in lovely colors. I’ve had it done many times, usually in bright colors. I forgot about it until it recently popped up in my head. Since I’m a bit of a hippiegirl, I thought it would be nice to do it again, except for more natural colors this time, I mean, I’m a bit childish but I don’t want to exaggerate.. 😉

I used two different colors for this one and added some beads in the end. You could also use for example feathers, to make it even more hippie-ish 🙂

The one on the right I did with woolen string, it’s one string with different colors. When you use wool, be aware its a lot thicker than normal thread/string.

And heres how you do it:

(I have never made a video before so forgive me for the funny faces :P)
You can use multiple colors and put beads in there, love it! Enjoy 🙂

Mobile

Standard
Mobile

Easy to make and beautiful to have as decoration!

What do you need:
– Branch (Have a look outside)
– Piece of thread
– Shells / beads/ pinecone / glass accessories

How to work it:
Thread the shells to the strings, as many as you like. Keep in mind that the mobile needs balance, so make each side weigh about the same. Tie the strings to the branch and attach some string at the top of the branch so you can hang it.

Lots of love,smiles and happiness,
